Now the rear: The Fox app will ask you to walk through the same steps with the
shock and, again, will supply suggested settings. How useful is this app? Clip-on sag
tools like the ones from Trek and Pivot are much faster to use and just as accurate for
setting sag. But for the tech geek, the Fox app will prove to be fun. ❏;
Be honest now: The app now asks you
to enter your weight including all your
gear. As soon as you enter the weight
value, the app will give you a suggested
air pressure to set the fork to.
The proof: Sit on the bike (holding on to
the wall), bounce a few times, sit still, push
the fork’s O-ring down to the wiper and,
without bouncing, get off the bike. Now
take your phone, align it with the fork tube
and, using the camera, the app finds the
position of your O-ring.
Spot-on: The app will tell you to add or
bleed air pressure. In this case, our first
setting was on the money, so we were
asked to proceed to the next step.
Fine-tune: The app will guide you toward
what it feels is the best rebound setting
for your size. You can make personal
preference changes after your first ride,
but try Fox’s suggestion. They have a lot
more experience than you.
