I Ride: Anything with 2 wheels!
Tire pressure very much depends on the rider's preference and the roads. I only do canyon and county/farm road riding and do not mind sacrificing a shorter tire life for a bit more grip. I prefer 31 front and 30 rear.

Is there a topic with any more opinions ? The elusive perfect setting hey! The road bikes should be fairly straight forward (yeah) , match your weight with the correct springs then worry about getting sag numbers within the numbers suggested already here, then dial in comp and rebound. Softer is better than harder , the springs need to work and let the hydraulics control the speed of the work.
Higher end track work is another thing. My 1299 is track/race only, and as good as it handles , i'm now struggling with set up, tire wear etc. Going faster on this beast for some reason ?? The Marzzochi/Sachs seem to me to be a bit limited when pushed hard. The adjusters dont seem to make much of a difference, or am I missing something? My other bikes , a 1098 , EBR , and DB8 have had Ohlins or Matris suspension and have had good response to adjustment
I'm looking at kitting out the 1299 with Ohlins or Matris or Mupo . More interested in the last two. Fire away boys!!!!!

[QUOTE=Contrary to popular belief, bodyweight is NOT a factor when it comes to suspension setup. Bodyweight is irrelevant.[/QUOTE]

This is not accurate, weight of rider is critical to total balanced setup of suspension
