View Full Version : Rebound Knob
December 6th, 2002, 10:49 PM
I have a KHS Dominatrax with a Romic coil spring shock and im building up a Santa Cruz Bullit with a 5th Element shock. I noticed something about the rebound knobs on both theses shocks. Their on the shaft end of the shock so how do they work?????? The shaft just threads into the eye(where the knob is at) that attaches to the frame... I dont get it. Am i missing something or is a rebound adjustment just a mental adjustment?????

dawgee on the 5th element it is highly tuneable almost too much so. the rebound control is very effective 2 turns is very noticeable when riding. do you have the manual? its ok but somewhat confusing because of the number of adjustments .email me if you need a copy ,also the tool supplied is best used on the trail - just ride and make small changes until you get the feel you like. i have a bullitt w 5th element shock .it makes a very disctinct whooshing sound when riding. very different than fox shocks. how are you going to set it up cc? dh? fr?

Im setting it up as mostly a freeride bike.I do have the manual and it is somewhat confusing. I know the rebound adjustment on the 5th element youre talking about Agent. But i had my Romic apart (because the threads stripped out of the eye when i was coming down Loon) and the knob just turns.(i had to take it off to fix the thread) Id have to show you like i said im not good at explaining things. :)

Im using a Marzocchi Jr T . It came off my Dominatrax. I mostly ride in Arcadia just started to go into Big River. I want to go exploring in Lincoln woods more too. My girlfriend and I have been working on a trail on my friends land. its a work in progess. Its NorthShore style. Only about 3/4 of a mile long.
