First the stats: Bike: Yeti SB5c (2015 - Large) Shock DVO Topaz (210psi - 25% sag - no reducers) Fork DVO Diamond 160m (130psi - 25% Sag - no reducers)

The problem: The bike is rad on downhill sections. Incredible actually. Faster than my SB6 (which currently isnt running DVO gear). On the pedal sections (uphill) its quite bouncy and definitely is a not as pedal friendly as my other bikes (SB6, SB4.5). Should I start with spacers in the shock? Any thoughts?

Hello, glad to hear you’re liking your DVO Suspension set up. I would recommend adding a spacer into the negative side of the air canister. This will decrease the amount of pedal bob you get but you might lack some small bump compliance when descending. There is always a trade off between climbing and descending performance. Make sure to check your SAG after you make an air volume change because your pressures will change. Also, running a higher pressure in the bladder will help the support of the shock. Try 190-200 PSI in the bladder.
