How do you put SAG on a coil shock?

The difference between the two measurements is sag.

  1. To increase sag, turn the preload adjuster counter-clockwise.
  2. To decrease sag, turn the preload adjuster clockwise no more than two full turns.
  3. To change to a higher or lower rate spring, see the Changing Coil Springs section below.

Can you adjust a coil shock?

If you have a coil shock, you can adjust your sag by adjusting the preload on the spring. Preloading the spring will adjust how much force it takes to initially compress the spring (and thus adjust the sag).

How do piggyback shocks work?

These shocks are designed to allow you to land roughly and not damage the car in any way.

How much does a Cane Creek inline shock cost?

The latest shrunk-down InLine switches to a coil spring for the added performance and consistency some riders want, and the total weight is still very reasonable – roughly 250g heavier than equivalent piggy back air shocks. It sells for £330, which is cheap for such a high-performance after market shock.
