My SM seemed to be very soft in the rear, so I got out the measuring tape and went to work. From Eddie's recommendation, I was after 25 mm static sag, and 75mm with me on the bike. I cranked down the rear pre-load so that I got 25mm of static, but when I sit on the bike (with gear on), it settles to 60-65mm of total race sag. Is that too much pre-load, or is it ok. I'd prefer it to be a little on the firm/tall side. Thanks for the info, I just don't know much about the suspension set up on these bikes (newb).
