Best suspension servicing in Joburg

I ride a Scott spark 700 ultimate I weigh 100kg what should the PSI be for the front and rear shocks ?


The rule of thumb :


REAR : 2x your weight, thus 200psi


Front : 1x your weight, thus 100psi



this is a good starting point.



Now check the "sag" when you are on the bike ...



Next, check how much of the shock travel you use on the trails ...  I aim for 80 to 90% travel on a hard/bumpy ride.



On my current bike I am now at 2x at the rear, and slightly less than 1x on the front .... 


On my Scott I was a bit more than 2x at the rear and also a bit more than 1x on the front.
