Finally got to take the bike out after a little hiatus waiting for some goodies. While I was in maintenance mode, I decided to make some adjustments to the front suspension based on my last ride before the hiatus. I stiffened up the compression damping by 1 click.

When I took her out this afternoon, the suspension was stiff. It was kinda weird because it felt heavy but it was easier to turn in. Does that make sense? Could that feeling be a result from my 1 click adjustment?

Thanks,
Chris

Here is my little guide to suspension, but it sounds like you may need to lower the forks in the suspension to get the quickness back "IF" you like the compression.

Droped my front end to show 6 lines and it's perfect now as well as stiffining it up

keep an eye on the tire pressure, 2-3 PSI can make th ebike feel totally different :)

by God Aaron, another good call!! that's exactly how it feels. with the bike sitting in the garage for a couple weeks, if not a month or so, that may just be the issue. i'll check that on the way home today. that's exactly what it feels like it could be!

thanks everyone else for their input. i'll put that info to some good use as well if the air pressure thing doesn't do it...
