Been riding for some time now with some relatively high milage per week, around 300+ km's for the past few months. Part of my commute's on a really bumpy road. Can't see the bumps as they're not pot holes, but you really feel them in this bike. I started to notice that they didn't jolt me as much. Thought awesome! No more head/spine jarring sensations! Until I started turning. It's an odd sensation to describe, like I wasn't planted on turns? I pumped up my tires, and didn't help. Stiffened my suspension (turned the nut towards H), and noticed that it felt a bit better. Is that what soft suspension is meant to feel like? I've also been riding +1 once or twice, not sure if that could impact things.
Do bumpy roads soften suspension a minuscule amount per hard jolt? Or is it likely something else? I did inflate my tyres while hot, after a 45km ride to F38 R42, so maybe they just need more air. Hoping the time to fuel let them cool down a bit to give me a somewhat accurate reading.
With suspension tweaking (was my first time), I'd assume you'd need to keep them in a similar position. If I've not kept count, can I tune it by feel? Noticed turning on one side felt worse off than the other, so gave it an extra cycle to catch up to the other side and felt a bit more balanced.
