Bleed stack(low speed adjustment)

Recommended Posts

ok so i am just curious as to how a low speed adjustment stack(bleed) works what are the effects of different changes. does it work for high speed as well..it looks to me like this has a high and lowspeed stack...this is what i found in my bike.I am confused what the top 16.1's and the 16.2 are for. they are not really a part of the stack from what i can tell they just fill a gap.am i corect?i have revalved my base and my mid i just wondered what you guys know about the bleed stacks to see if i can use your knowledge to help me do some fine tuning..what would i do to get certain effects out of this stack..if i wanted to soften or stiffen a part of my stoke or all of it at once?

here is my current stack

16.1(8)

16.2

the bleed stack affects the damping during the free bleed , ie before the shim stacks come into play, it stops the fork falling into the stroke so easily, BUT you have to add a lot of shims to make a decent difference in feel.As the main shim stack opens more and more the bleed stack effect is less and less.
