I am seeking the right combination of shock pressure vs. Brain threshold settings for new Stumpjumper Elite (with Specialized Brain inertia valve) with respect to durability.
Are there any recommended settings for the trail/all-mountain kind of riding for the brain?
I found this chart suggesting 3-open setting for the brain: http://service.specialized.com/collateral/ownersguide/new/assets/pdf/AC0419_2013_air_chart_11x17.pdf
Sure it is affected by personal preference. My concern is to find if there is any significant influence of the settings to the Brain durability/service interval by next extremes:
- low shock pressure + hard Brain threshold
- vs. high shock pressure + soft Brain threshold
Does any of these extremes has significant influence on Brain durability/life-time? Or is it just a matter of personal preference?
