Apologies if there's an existing thread, I wasn't able to find one.

Impetus: as a new rider on the lighter end of the spectrum I wasn't able to find baseline settings that worked for me, hopefully this thread can provide some starting points for new riders and ideas for experienced ones.

I've probably left some important info out, please chime in with ideas of stuff to add!

Below are the settings I've found that work for me and my riding style and conditions right now. I have no idea if they'll work for you smile

Not really enough travel to be supple while still supportive, so I just set it up stiff/supportive enough to allow those fun trail gaps, compressions, and to efficiently pump for speed. The tires are very supportive given the bike's weight allowing it to very rarely hit the rim even on very sharp rocks in compressions, great upgrade from the EXO tires that came stock.

I have not ridden anywhere with this bike that I feel requires giving up support for traction and would run these settings in Virgin, UT except for tire pressures. If I was to race somewhere that is rocky in the corners or has a lot of off camber roots I would lose a few volume reducers and play with pressures/compression.

Weight - 67kg (147lbs) naked
Bike - Pivot Switchblade v2

Fork - 2021 Fox 36 160 Grip2 with DSD Runt
Pressure - 70 low / 135 high
Compression - open on both (sometimes I add 2 clicks of HSC if its real chunky or a bike park)
Rebound - HSR - closed, LSR - somewhere in the middle

Shock - 2021 Fox DPX2 - Custom tune DSD (HSC and LSC opened up and HSR added)
Pressure - 190psi (~27% sag)
Rebound - somewhere in the middle

Tires - Assegai Exo+ and Dissector Exo+, with Tannus tubeless inserts. 19-20 psi in front / tbd psi rear (haven't rode it). Previously had a DHF DD in the rear with tannus at 21psi, but felt it was too heavy for most days. Probably will try 22-23 psi in the exo+ and see if it doesn't explode.

i just got a 2021 dhx2 and 500# coil as well. do you find the fox recommended settings a bit slow on the rebound? for my travel and stroke length and spring weight, they are saying 4-5 clicks of LSR and HSR. it feels awfully slow to me. i noticed you are running 5 LSR and HSR as well. just wanted to hear your thoughts.

how do you like the runt? i just installed it in my fox36 last week. your pressures seem really high for your weight, because im about 190 geared up and 70/135 is what they recommended for me. for reference, i ran about 75psi without the runt. i tried 70/140 in the runt and it seemed pretty firm, i had like 50mm left of travel available and my hands were getting beat up. curious to hear your experience.

My pressures are high because its a 2021. Two changes for that fork. 1) increase air pressure to handle the bigger negative air chamber (I think). All stock pressures on 2021 went up from the 2020 if you look at their charts. I started where fox recommended (74) and went a few psi lower. 2) Diaz is recommending on the 2021 to do 1:1.8 or so ratio with air on the RUNT, lower than <=2020 where it was 1:2. I started at 70/130, but trying around 135 for a bit more progression at the end for really big hits. When I was on my 2018, I was at 62/125. I'm using full travel on the new setup on big hits, and got to around a mm from the end a couple times.

As for how I like it, I love it and all my friends that are now on it love it. It has a big following in Durango obviously since DSD is in town. I've been on a RUNT for a little over a year I think on two forks, both 160. If I was to sum up what I feel it did for my front suspension 1) Corner support. It sits higher than before in the travel on berms or supported turns, preserving the geo. 2) Small bump is the same as before but now I have better mid and high support 3) Better ramp to the end stroke. I felt before it was a harsh ramp at the end with tokens, or I needed more compression with 2 tokens to get the same, but it was a harsher feeling then now.

Main thing to say is that everyones pumps likely give a different pressure (would guess +-10%), so I wouldn't read into pressures a ton, just go with sag settings and what feels good for you. For example, Diaz said my rear was at 190 on his pump and it felt harsh, but when I put mine on it was showing 195, so I am guessing it was around 210 and felt stiff.

How I would tell you you are in a good spot with the runt is on most rides using 60-80% of the travel and your hands aren't getting fatigued on longer downhills. On big hits you should have it go to 90-95% and if you really take a monster mess up or massive hit to flat, it should go full travel. If you feel that your hands are sore, reduce the low a few psi's and repeat a good section of trail until you think it's in a good spot. Then adjust high accordingly based on ratios above. But ride with your pump in your pack a couple rides and adjust on sections you know well and can really feel how it is working.

ah ok makes sense. im on a 2020 fork. didn't notice you had a 2021 fork. cornering def feels better as the fork sits higher, but i got the runt hoping to make small bump compliance better.

granted i've only had this new bike and shock for a month or so. fox recommends 4-5 clicks out for LSR/HSR, but i've been running 12 clicks out on LSR and 5 clicks out on HSR and it hasn't felt horrible. i think it might be a tad bit fast, so im going to test today with about 10 clicks out on LSR, but keep 5 clicks out on HSR.

I didn't really need that, but you could make the argument that with compression removed you would get more supple off the top. I would start with opening all compression if you haven't to see how that feels. Then back off pressures in low chamber. You could also try something like 60/130, so slightly higher ramp at the end if you are hitting the end of the stroke. It likely should give you suppleness off the top to have lower pressure.

Another thing I would put in is make sure that fork is serviced. I'm pretty religious about mine and do the lower fluid and seals about every 50 hours. I think it makes a world of difference in that off the top feeling making that feel good.

You could also try something like 60/130, so slightly higher ramp at the end if you are hitting the end of the stroke. It likely should give you suppleness off the top to have lower pressure.

Another thing I would put in is make sure that fork is serviced. I'm pretty religious about mine and do the lower fluid and seals about every 50 hours. I think it makes a world of difference in that off the top feeling making that feel good.

i followed dsd's recommendation of LSC and HSC set to fully open, HSR fully closed, and LSR set to preference. my fork is pretty new. it's only about a month old. dylan from dsd said i need to be 65+ psi in the Low chamber or else the fork wont have enough force to extend fully.

Well Dylan knows better than me, thats for sure. He pretty much gets me 90% of the way there and I only really ever have to change rebound a click or two or change a little bit of pressure. I'd call him and see what he says.

i just got a 2021 dhx2 and 500# coil as well. do you find the fox recommended settings a bit slow on the rebound? for my travel and stroke length and spring weight, they are saying 4-5 clicks of LSR and HSR. it feels awfully slow to me. i noticed you are running 5 LSR and HSR as well. just wanted to hear your thoughts.

I am not sure what Fox recommends for me so I really can't say (I always start in the middle and go from there) but I prefer the rear to be slightly slower than the front personally. The Fox recommended settings aren't hard requirements, if you feel it needs to be faster run it that way. At the end of the day they are only supposed to be starting points really, and your riding style/ terrain decides where you go from there if you decide you need to make any adjustments at all. Just do some back to back testing and after each run ask: "is it better or worse".
