    I just got a giant nrs air frame that i recieved due to a warranty issue on my last frame.

    Should my rear shock sag at all when I sit on the bike? I heard that the rear shock shouldnt sag on the nrs... but on most bikes you do have some sag. So im not sure...

    Also how much air pressure do i want? I weigh like 175, but with all my gear im probably in the neighborhood of 185-190 pounds.

    I have about 200 psi in the shock and it still seems a bit soft for my liking.

    You don't want to see any sag on an NRS. Try increasing the pressure until the sag is negligible and the "O" ring hardly moves when you get on it. Then go out and ride off the kerb and check that the O ring has moved about an Inch.

    I weigh 213 and I find if I keep 250 in the top and 50 in the bottom I get a nice stiff ride. If I known I'm going on real rough backtrail I lower the top to about 220 and whild I get some sag It still gives me plenty of resistance but its not too soggy. I have the list of inflation from the operators manual if you need it. send me an e-mail
