Wen pushin the shock shaft into the shock boby, shud it rebound or shud it remain?
Well, like what you say... different folks, different strokes
Some people like to set it with a rebound. Some don't. I do.
With the new addition of the sponge in the shock cap behind the shock bladder, the rebound can now can be set to be more consistant. After a weekend racing, when I take off the shock spring, the shocks will still give the same rebound as it did when newly assembled.
The trick to the rebound thingy is to make both left and right shocks rebound the same. You need to slowly tighten the shock cap while compressing the shock at the same time to release pressure in it so that the rebound is not to strong. Once that is achieved, I tighten the shock cap very tightly.
