-  * You may hear all sorts of explanations as to how to adjust the knobs. But the trick is to learn how the changes you made affect how the bike rides.

-  * Might as well start with both knobs in the middle of the range. Then move the compression adjuster one or two clicks at a time until you go from full soft to full hard and do enough riding at each position so you can tell the difference.

-  * Too much compression damping makes the bike ride stiff, too little makes the bike bouncy and/or bottom out.

-  * Then start working with the rebound adjuster. Too much rebound damping may cause packing down, where the shock cannot extend after hitting a bump and gets shorter and shorter. Too little rebound damping can literally throw you off the seat.((XLXR http://​xlforum.net/vbportal/​forums/​showthread.php?​t=164018&​highlight=piggyback&​page=2)) +  * Then start working with the rebound adjuster.

-  * Eventually, you will find the best positions. The least amount of damping in both directions will allow the wheel to track road bumps most effectively. Be careful when test riding after making changes because the bike can handle quite differently.
