Sag / Suspension / General Bouncyness
#1
Righto - Ive set my rear Fox RP2 shock sag up to the recommended 25% of travel when sitting on.

Ive also just put enough air in the forks as recommended by the Rockshox instructions on my Revs (equal air in +ive and -ive)

I still cant ride the bike in anger due to the gearing/cabling which (if post comes today) will be sorted today.

What tests could I put the bike through to setup my suspension, ie Rebound adjustment, Air adjustment in fork etc?

I remember somewhere saying about constantly dropping off a curb or riding over a ladder to get dialled in.

Any recommendations on what I need to do to fine tune?

Im enjoying your ongoing bik build, and i dare say ove learned a fair few things just reading the posts.
I used the kerb test. ride of a kerb and the rear shock should only bounce once. and for the fork i found a really good short and shallow flight of steps and just kept adjusting until it felt right. that said im still playing with the fork settings.
