    Tomorrow has a full clear day, and a garage that needs to be used. I am slamming my bike. I have a couple last minute questions.

    First, I am a bigger guy. Im wondering if setting the shock to 2 or 3 will prevent bottoming out? id rather not have to use the rubber stoppers unless I have to.

    Secondly, the directions say to measure center to center 1 inch. Has anyone that has done this confirm that 1 inch is good distance?

    as for everything else, were ready, Have a 6 pack chilling and the materials ready to go.

    Set your shock on the stiffest setting, 7 I think, after the slam otherwise you are gonna bottom out alot.

    Use the template in the instuctions, set a 1 inch, on both sides. 1 inch is Low but you still have clearance. The last bike I did with a jslam and a seat cut had a 19 inch seat height.

    I think with my stiletto seat and j slam, I'm at about 21"-22" seat height. I only have my spring set @ 5 and ride double with my wife and have no issues.
