just bought my first mtb and seems like my rockshox recon XC is too soft.

how do i stiffen it up.

I've played with the rebound on the top and not made to much difference?

do i add air and where how.

PS i am 95kgs and ex rugby player so generate quite a bit of downforce.

 

any help will be greatly appreciated.

Is it an air version?

 

Then its easy simply get hold of a shock pump from a bike shop and pump it up according to the table on the fork leg.

 

If its a coil version you will need to get a stiffer coil spring or add a preload spacer or 2.

Oh and I guarantee you that the rebound adjust will not make the fork any harder or softer. If it does there something wrong!

and the rebound is normally at the bottom of the leg, a small black knob. If you played around with the knob at the top, and it did'nt come off and display the valve then its not an air shock. And just for kickers how much do you wheigh mate.
