Shock
Rock Shox Monarch RT3 Debonair:

Prior to performing shock adjustments, determine riding weight ( fully geared up ). Push the shock O-ring against the wiper seal and push the sag adjuster on the non drive side of the Delta Link forward. Lean up against a sturdy wall, friend, or telephone pole and sit on the bike. Being careful not to tip over, dismount the bike and check the SAG indicator. The SAG indicator should barely cover the 30% mark and the O-ring should measure between 10-13mm from the shock body for ideal setup. The Following uses a high volume air canister which compliments the progressive spring curve of the Delta System Suspension, if a less progressive feel is desired then experiment with different air volume spacers. We also found that the Following performs great in the "Descend" position for most riding conditions, however, for sufferfest climbs and high speed trail riding the "Pedal" position also works well.

Note:

These are just guidelines to start you on your suspension tuning journey. Its very important to tune your front and rear suspension together to get the best set up possible. Play around and find that special tune, then write it down so you don’t forget!

Note:

The dual progressive leverage rate curve might make some spring rates seem stiff, we encourage you to try different rates that will allow you to sit deeper into the suspension travel and find that perfect set up.

How do I adjust my flip chips?

Remove upper and lower linkage bolts then remove 3 flip chip bolts. Lightly wiggle flip chips free and flip 180 degrees with desired position facing up. The flip chip position will be visible when sitting on the bike and should read High/Low or Low/XLow depending on model.

How do I adjust my head tube geometry?

If equipped with optional Angleset. Using a headset removal tool remove lower cup. Rotate 180 degrees. The lower headtube cup is labeled +1 or -1. Place desired position to the front of the bike. Reinstall with headset tool.

What size is the seat post?

The Following uses a 30.9 Stealth seat post and a 34.9 seat clamp.

What is the warranty on the Following?

3 Year limited warranty

What type of headset does the Following use?

The Following uses an FSA Integrated Tapered No.57/68 headset, alternatively bearings from other suppliers can be used. Upper Bearing 30.2x41x6.5 36˚/45˚ Lower Bearing 40×51.8×8 36˚/45˚

What is the suggested fork length for the Following?

The Following was designed around 120mm and 130mm forks, but works well with a 140mm fork.This slackens the head angle to 66.4˚ Low and 67.0˚ High and makes for some ripping descents and cornering.

What shocks can the Following accept?

The Following works best with the Rockshock Monarch RT3 Debonair with custom Evil tune, but will also fit a Fox Float CTD and most standard sized non external reservoir shocks. The Following is not compatible with the Cane Creek Inline or DBair.
