SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
• It is extremely important that your RockShox® suspension fork (fork) is installed
correctly by a qualified bicycle mechanic. Improperly installed forks are extremely
dangerous and can result in severe and/or fatal injuries.
• The fork on your bicycle is designed for use by a single rider, on mountain trails, and
similar off-road conditions.
• Before riding your bicycle, be sure the brakes are properly installed and adjusted. Use
your brakes carefully and learn your brakes’ characteristics by practicing your braking
technique in non-emergency circumstances. Hard braking or improper use of the front
brake can cause you to fall. If the brakes are out of adjustment, improperly installed or
are not used properly, the rider could suffer serious and/or fatal injuries.
• Your fork may fail in certain circumstances, including, but not limited to, any condition
that causes a loss of oil; collision or other activity bending or breaking the fork’s
components or parts; and extended periods of non-use. Fork failure may not be visible.
Do not ride your bicycle if you notice bent or broken fork parts, loss of oil, sounds of
excessive topping out, or other indications of a possible fork failure, such as loss of
shock absorbing properties. Instead, take your bike to a qualified dealer for inspection
and repair. In the event of a fork failure, damage to the bicycle or personal injury may
result.
• Always use genuine RockShox parts. Use of aftermarket replacement parts voids the
warranty and could cause structural failure to the fork. Structural failure could result in
loss of control of the bicycle with possible serious and/or fatal injuries.
• Use extreme caution not to tilt the bicycle to either side when mounting the bicycle
to a carrier by the fork drop-outs (front wheel removed). The fork legs may suffer
structural damage if the bicycle is tilted while the drop-outs are in the carrier. Make
sure the fork is securely fastened according to the bike carrier's instructions. Make sure
the rear wheel is fastened down when using ANY bike carrier that secures the fork’s
drop-outs. Not securing the rear can allow the bike’s mass to side-load the drop-outs,
causing them to break or crack. If the bicycle tilts or falls out of its carrier, do not ride
the bicycle until the fork is properly examined for possible damage. Return the fork to
your dealer for inspection or call RockShox if there is any question of possible damage.
The International Distributor List is available on-line at www.sram.com. A fork leg or
drop-out failure could result in loss of control of the bicycle with possible serious and/
or fatal injuries.
• Forks designed for use with disc-style brakes: follow the brake manufacturer’s
installation instructions for proper installation and mounting of the brake caliper. For
forks using a post style disc brake mount, ensure that your brake caliper mounting
bolts have 9-12 mm of thread engagement and are torqued to 90 in-lb (10.2 N·m) when
installed on the fork. Failure to have proper thread engagement can damage the brake
mounting posts, which can result in severe injury and/or death.
• Your RockShox fork is designed to secure a front wheel using a quick release thru
axle. Be sure you understand which axle your bike has and how to properly operate it.
Do not use a bolt on axle. An improperly installed wheel can allow the wheel to move
or disengage from the bicycle, causing damage to the bicycle and serious injury and/or
death to the rider.
• Observe all instructions for care and service of this product.
ROCKSHOX FORKS DO NOT COME WITH THE REFLECTORS REQUIRED BY FEDERAL LAW
FOR NEW BICYCLES, 16 CFR §1512.16. ADDITIONAL REQUIREMENTS FOR REFLECTORS
AND LIGHTING MAY EXIST AND VARY BY LOCATION. YOUR DEALER SHOULD INSTALL
PROPER REFLECTORS AND LIGHTING SYSTEMS TO MEET ALL APPLICABLE FEDERAL,
STATE, AND LOCAL REQUIREMENTS. ALWAYS USE FRONT AND REAR LIGHTS IN
ADDITION TO REFLECTORS IF RIDING AT NIGHT OR IN REDUCED VISIBILITY.

Thanks for Choosing RockShox®
We are excited, pleased, and honored that you have chosen RockShox for your bicycle
suspension. You can feel confident that your suspension is the best in the market today
because RockShox products are developed and engineered by people who love to ride and
who are as passionate about performance as you.
This manual contains the important safety, maintenance, and warranty information you need
in order to safely install and use your RockShox suspension. To ensure that your RockShox
suspension performs properly, we recommend that you have it installed by a qualified bicycle
mechanic.
Additional detailed set-up, tuning, and service information for your RockShox suspension is
available online at www.sram.com.
Suspension Fork Installation
Remove the existing fork from the bicycle. Measure the RockShox steerer tube against
the length of the existing one as you may need to cut the RockShox steerer tube. If your
RockShox fork has a tapered steerer tube, be sure to leave enough steerer above the taper
in order to clamp the stem. Prior to cutting, consult your stem manufacturer's instructions to
determine the length of steerer tube required to clamp the stem.
Remove the crown race from the existing fork and install it firmly against the RockShox
crown. Use a 39.8 mm crown race for 1 1/2" steerer tubes and a 29.9 mm crown race for 1 1/8"
steerer tubes.
WA R N I N G
Improperly installed forks are extremely dangerous and can result in severe and/or fatal injuries.
Do not add threads to RockShox steerers. The steerer tube crown assembly is a one-time
press fit. Replacement of the assembly must be done to change the length or diameter of the
steerer tube.
Do not remove or replace the steerer tube. This could result in the loss of control of the
bicycle with possible serious and/or fatal injuries.
Aluminum Crown-Steerer

1
Mark the steerer tube and cut to the proper length.
2
Install a star nut or headset compression device into the steerer tube.
3
Install the fork onto the bike.
4
Install your stem according to the manufacturer's instructions and adjust the headset
until you feel no play or drag.
Brakes
Install your brakes according to the manufacturer's instructions and adjust the brake pads
properly. Use only disc style brakes on the provided disc mounting holes.
N OT I C E
Do not let brake or derailleur cables rest on, or be attached to the crown. Abrasion
over time may cause damage to the crown. If contact is unavoidable, use tape or similar
protection to cover the surface. Crown abrasion is not covered under warranty.
Wheel Installation
Check tire clearance whenever you change tires. To do this, remove the air pressure or coil
spring from the fork, then compress the fork completely and ensure there is at least 6 mm of
clearance between the top of the inflated tire and the bottom of the crown.
For complete instructions, refer to the RockShox Service Manual at www.sram.com.
WA R N I N G
Failure to leave 6 mm clearance between the top of the inflated tire and the bottom of the
crown will cause the tire to jam against the crown when the fork is fully compressed which
can result in severe and/or fatal injuries.
Riding with an improperly installed wheel can allow the wheel to move or disengage from
the bicycle, causing damage to the bicycle, and serious injury or death to the rider. It is
essential that you:
• Ensure that your axle, dropouts, and quick release mechanisms are clean and free of dirt
or debris. Always check and clean this area when reinstalling the wheel. Accumulated
dirt and debris can compromise the security of the axle, leading to serious and/or fatal
injury.
• Ask your dealer to help you understand how to properly secure your front wheel using
the Maxle quick release thru axle system.
• Apply the correct techniques when installing your front wheel.
• Never ride your bicycle unless you are sure the front wheel is installed properly and
secure.

Maxle™ Quick Release Thru Axle System
The axle threads into the non-drive side fork drop out and compresses the hub between
the non-drive and drive side fork legs. The axle is fixed in place in the lower leg by the Maxle
quick release lever.
Position your wheel in the lower leg drop outs. The hub should seat firmly in the drop outs.
Be sure to position the disc brake rotor in the caliper. Verify that the rotor, hub, and rotor
bolts do not interfere with the lower fork legs. If you are unfamiliar with adjusting your disc
brakes, see your brake manufacturer’s instructions.
N OT I C E
Never use any other tool to tighten the axle into the lower fork leg. Over-tightening of the
axle can damage the axle and/or the lower fork leg.
WA R N I N G
After closing the Maxle quick release lever, do not reposition or spin the lever.
Repositioning or spinning the Maxle lever can cause the axle to come loose,
compromising the security of the axle which can lead to serious injury and/or death.

hard surface. Use the palm of your hand to push the lever head in to compress the spring
inside the Maxle. While the spring is compressed, rotate the lever head to the desired
position using the numbered lines on the Maxle as a reference.
3
Install, tighten, and secure the Maxle into the lower fork leg. Repeat until your desired
closed lever position is achieved.

INTRODUCTION
Congratulations on your purchase and welcome to the finest line of suspension bikes available!
About Off Road, Stunt, Downhill and Freeriding
This manual is designed to be used in conjunction with the Bicycle Owner’s Manual and owner’s manuals supplied by the manufacturer of the front and
rear suspension components. If you did not receive any of these manuals, download them from the Internet, contact your Authorized Specialized Dealer,
or contact us by telephone. There may be more current manuals and technical information available. For the most current information, regularly check the
Specialized web site or consult your Authorized Specialized Dealer. These manuals were written for an important reason: your safety while riding.
This manual contains many “Warnings” and “Cautions” concerning the consequences of failure to maintain or inspect your bicycle or of failure to follow safe cycling
practices. The combination of the safety alert symbol and the word Warning indicates a potentially hazardous situation which, if not avoided, could result in serious
injury or death. The combination of the safety alert symbol and the word Caution indicates a potentially hazardous situation which, if not avoided, may result in minor
or moderate injury, or damage to your bicycle or a component. Because the consequences of not following a Warning usually include “you may lose control and
fall,” which could result in serious personal injury or death, we may not repeat this in conjunction with each Warning. Because it is impossible to anticipate every
situation or condition which may occur, a practice or situation may be unsafe but not anticipated by this manual. So, don’t forget to use your common sense.
WARNING! Make sure you have, review, and understand the warnings, instructions, and content of the manuals for your bicycle.
About off road, stunt, downhill and freeriding
Downhill racing, severe off road riding, jumping, and stunt riding is extremely dangerous. Some downhill racers and freeriders reach speeds similar to
motorcycles, thus face similar risks and hazards. When engaging in these activities, you, your bicycle and safety equipment must be in perfect condition. We
recommend that at all times you wear appropriate safety gear, such as an approved full face helmet, full finger gloves, and body armor.
Not every bicycle is built for every activity. Check with your Authorized Specialized Dealer to make sure you have the right equipment.
No bicycle is indestructible. Downhill racing, severe off road riding, jumping, and stunt riding increases the stress on every part of your bicycle. Frames
or parts under high stress may fail, causing you to lose control or fall. Because of the risk involved, Specialized recommends that you conduct a
thorough inspection before each ride. If you miss a jump, ditch your bike in mid crash, dump or launch your bike without you on it, inspect yourself for
injury, then carefully inspect your bicycle for damage.
Here is what you should look for when you inspect your bicycle for this type of riding: bent or broken components, such as the handlebar, handlebar
stem, seatpost, pedals; dents, cracks, scratches, deformation, or discoloration. Because damage may be internal and hidden, if any of these signs are
present, stop riding until your bicycle has been thoroughly inspected by your Authorized Specialized Dealer.
WARNING! Although many catalogs, advertisements and articles about bicycling depict riders racing, jumping, riding hard off road, and/
or stunt riding, this activity is extremely dangerous, increases the rider’s risk of injury or death, and potentially increases the severity of
any injury. The action depicted is being performed by experts with many years of training and experience. Even with that training and
experience, cyclists who engage in such activity often get seriously injured. It is also foreseeable that during some jumps or stunts, and
even some races, that the rider will exceed the design capacity of the frame or components, which may result in something on the
bicycle bending or breaking. If a frame or component bends or breaks, such may lead to loss of control, serious personal injury or death.
As activities such as racing, jumping, severe off road riding, and stunt riding are extremely dangerous, SAFETY should always be the first consideration.
Don’t ride in the race, ride hard off road, try the jump, or do the stunt, UNLESS YOU CAN DO SO SAFELY. Here are some additional recommendations:
„ Take lessons from a competent instructor first.
„ Do jumps or stunts only in areas designated for this type of riding.
„ Start with easy jumps and easy stunts first, and slowly develop skills before trying more dangerous jumps or stunts.
„ Wear appropriate safety gear, such as a full face helmet, body armor, full finger gloves, etc.
„ Make sure by checking with your Authorized Specialized Dealer that your bike is suitable for the kind of activity you intend to engage in.
„ Constantly inspect your bicycle for signs of stress: cracks in the paint; dents; crushing or bending of the frame; bent components. Do not ride your
bicycle if it shows such signs of stress.
„ Do not seek to bend or break the frame or components. Remember, SAFETY FIRST!!!
Understand and recognize that the stresses imposed on your bike by riding at speed, jumping or stunt riding may break or damage parts of the bicycle,
which may result in loss of control, serious injury or death.
Specialized does not warrant the bicycle frame or components for such activities, and expressly disclaims all warranties, including the warranty of
fitness for particular purpose and merchantability.
Stunt riding, severe off road riding, jumping, or riding downhill at speed is extremely dangerous, and the rider voluntarily assumes the risk that the
bicycle frame and/or its components will bend or break, and voluntarily assumes the risk of injury or death.
Service and modifications
Technological advances have made bicycles and bicycle components more complex, and the pace of innovation is increasing. It is impossible for
this manual or the accompanying manuals to provide all of the information required to properly repair and/or maintain your bicycle. In order to help
minimize the chances of an injury, it is critical for you to have work performed by an Authorized Specialized Dealer.
WARNING! Service on Specialized bicycles requires special knowledge and tools. Specialized recommends that all service and repairs
be performed by an Authorized Specialized Dealer.
Your bicycle has been engineered and tested with specific components and parts. Because of the great variety in these items, it is impossible for Specialized
to test and approve of all possible combinations. Modifying the frame, fork, or any of the components may make your bike unsafe. For example, changing the
front suspension on your bicycle may alter the steering characteristics and/or add stresses to the frame which have not been tested for. If you must replace
any component, have this done by your Authorized Specialized Dealer.
WARNING! Never modify your frame or bicycle in any way. Do not sand, drill, fill, or remove parts. Do not install incompatible forks or
suspension parts. An improperly modified frame, fork, or component, can cause you to lose control and fall.
CAUTION: Any modification of your frame, fork, or components means that your bike no longer meets our specifications and therefore
voids your warranty.

BIKE SETUP SPECIFICATIONS
Seatpost height
SEATPOST MINIMUM INSERTION 1 : To prevent damage to the frame, it’s important to have a
minimum amount of seatpost in the seat tube.
1
Carbon frames:
Small / Medium - 70mm insertion
Large / X-Large - 100mm insertion
Aluminum frames:
If you cannot see the seatpost tube through the seat tube hole, your seatpost is too far extended. If a
greater saddle height is required, replace the seatpost with a longer one.
NOTE: When running a saddle in a low position, it’s important to fully compress the rear end of the bicycle
to ensure that the tire doesn’t contact the saddle. This is especially important on longer travel bicycles.
Frame linkage assembly
Specialized recommends following a specific order when assembling the rear triangle pivot locations
of FSR suspension bike models 2 .

NOTE: For optimal performance, Specialized suggests that the rear brake and rear derailleur housings enter the hood scoop on the non-drive-side of the
frame, while the front derailleur and Command Post IR enter the hood scoop on the drive-side of the frame. However, these are only recommendations.
The setup should be done based on the particular needs of the chosen components and rider preferences.
„ Fig.2: Choose the entry and exit port hood scoops that match the desired component selection (fig.1). Each frame has its own predetermined
selection of hood scoops installed at the factory, with the additional hood scoop options supplied in the parts bag.

„ Measure out the cable housing lengths for the chosen components (derailleur, Command Post) by running the housings from the handlebar
controls, along the underside of the down tube and to the receiving component. Cut each length of cable housing with an additional few inches to
accommodate changes during the final installation.
TECH TIP: To keep track of the intended component for each cable, mark each cable with a piece of tape for the correct component.
NOTE: Mechanical cable actuated rear brakes can be installed in the same way as derailleur and Command Post cables. Hydraulic brakes are installed
in the opposite direction. Refer to pages 6 and 7 for additional information.
NOTE: If running a Command Post IR, it is recommended to refer to the Command Post IR Adjustable-Height Seatpost Instruction Guide, and complete
the installation of the Command Post IR cable housing before installing any other cable housing.

„ Fig.11: Choose the hood scoops that match the cable choices. Install the correct hood scoop over the appropriate sections of housings. Place the
hood scoops into the entry port holes and fasten the hood scoops to the frame (M4 x 13mm chamfered head bolts).
NOTE: If the bolts are being installed after the hood scoops have been installed on the housings, carefully flex the housings to the side to provide enough
space for the bolt to access the hood scoop bolt hole. Be sure not to damage the housings.
„ Once the entry and exit port hood scoops have been fastened to the frame, adjust the housing lengths so that each housing reaches its mating
shifter or Command Post (hydraulic brake housing is adjusted later) with enough housing length to allow the handlebar to rotate freely through its
entire range of rotation.

„ Fig.13: Adjust each length of exposed cable housing to create a loop, so that the gap between the bottom bracket shell and the housing loops is
30-40mm (Epic) or 35-45mm (Camber).
š Position the front derailleur housing against the cable stop, adjust the loop distance, then trim the housing to the appropriate length. Epic frames
do not need a large loop since the housing does not connect to the chainstay.
š Position the rear derailleur housing loop to the correct distance from the bottom bracket shell. Do not adjust the housing length at the rear
derailleur until after the exit port pinch bolt has been tightened.
š Position the rear brake housing loop to the correct distance from the bottom bracket shell. Final length adjustment can then be made at the
brake lever so that the handlebar can rotate freely through its entire range of rotation. Remove the tape holding the cable to the housing, trim the
housing length, attach the housing to the brake lever and bleed the brake if necessary.
„ Tighten the exit port hood scoop cable pinch bolt, just tight enough to keep the housings from migrating in or out of the down tube.
„ Fig.14: External rear brake routing: Camber and Epic models are equipped with two single-bolt guide (middle and upper position) and one dual-bolt
cable guide (lower position). Place the guides over the brake housing and fasten the guides using recessed head bolts (M4 x 13 mm).

The adapters in some cases are followed by specific spacers and/or wave washers, depending on the crank. For additional information about crank
compatibility, please refer to the chart below.
„ For Specialized carbon crank installation, please refer to the Specialized Carbon Crankset Instruction Guide.
WARNING! Failure to follow these instructions may result in a catastrophic failure of the crank, frame and/or its components while
riding, which may result in serious personal injury or death.
WARNING! Bicycle assembly is a complicated task which requires training and experience. Do not attempt installation of any component
if you do not have experience and training as a bicycle mechanic. Failure to follow this warning may result in serious personal injury or
death. Reference should also be made to Barnett’s or some other comprehensive bicycle manual.
WARNING! Failure to follow the torque specifications in this instruction guide will void your warranty, but most importantly may result in damage
to the crank, which may not be visible. If the crank is damaged, this can result in loss of structural integrity, which may result in serious personal
injury or death. To ensure the best assembly possible and to prevent any damage to the crank components, follow all torque specifications.
Frame Preparation
CAUTION: Do not face or ream bottom bracket shell! This can possibly prevent proper installation of the crank. Your Specialized frame
does not require any bottom bracket shell pre-installation preparation, as all surfaces have been precisely machined to specific tolerances
at the factory for proper interface with the S-Works Carbon crankset.
WARNING! Great care should be taken to not damage carbon fiber or composite material. Any damage may result in a loss of structural
integrity, which may result in a catastrophic failure. This damage may or may not be visible in inspection. Before each ride, and after any
crash, you should carefully inspect your crank for any fraying, gouging, scratches through the paint, chipping, bending, or any other
signs of damage. Do not ride if your crank shows any of these signs. After any crash, and before you ride any further, take your bicycle
to an Authorized Specialized Dealer for a complete inspection.

„ Remove any grease from the bottom bracket shell.
„ Finish cleaning the bottom bracket shell with an alcohol wipe.
„ Prepare the cranks for installation. Any adapters, spacers, wave washers, spider, chainrings, etc. that are involved with the installation of
the crank must be ready to be installed prior to the installation of the bottom bracket cups.
NOTE: Due to the 20 minute work time of the epoxy, the cranks must be installed immediately after the cups are installed, to ensure that the cups,
bearings and crank are aligned.
„ Fully mix the 3M DP 420 2-part epoxy, then apply the epoxy to the outer surface of the OSBB cups and the first 10mm of the inner diameter of the
bottom bracket shell.
„ Wipe off the excess epoxy from the inside and outside flanges of the cups. Use an alcohol wipe to clean off any remaining residue.
„ Press the cups into the bottom bracket shell until the cups lightly bottom out against the frame. Use either the Specialized Bottom Bracket Bearing Press
(S125300012) or the Mindset Headset Bearing Press tool (9895-3045). When using the 9895-3045 tool, either use a Park Headset Press Tool or a
bench-mounted vise to press the cups into the frame. Be sure to press the cups evenly into the frame.
„ Apply grease to the outer diameter of the OSBB bearings, then press them into the cups using the same tool that pressed the cups into the frame.
Page 12 of 20
Be sure to press the bearings in straight. Do not force the bearings into the cup. Wipe any last epoxy residue from the outside of the cup.
„ Once the bearings bottom out in the cups, do not apply any more pressure. Excess force can damage the cups and cause the bearings to spin roughly.
„ To remove the cups from the frame, pull the bearings out as shown in the Specialized Carbon Crank set Instruction Guide, then lightly tap the backside of the
cups in a circular pattern with a large flat surface. Do not use a screwdriver, as it may damage the cups.
„ Before installing new cups with new epoxy, remove any excess epoxy lips that may have formed at the inside and outside edges of the cups.
TECH TIP: Any thin epoxy residue that remains on the contact area of the bottom bracket shell should not be removed. This thin film of epoxy residue can
actually benefit the bond of fresh epoxy when installing new cups.
Installing the Adapter Cups
„ Install the left bearing reducer adapter into the non-drive-side bearing, and
the right bearing reducer adapter into the drive-side bearing. The reducer
adapters should install by hand with a friction fit.
„ Shimano MTN require no spacers or wave washer.
„ SRAM GXP MTN cranks require a wave washer and a selection of shims
on the non-drive-side.

AUTOSAG AIR SHOCK SETUP
Certain Epic, Camber, Rumor, Stumpjumper, Safire and Enduro models are equipped with AUTOSAG, a unique new feature designed to simplify and
speed up the adjustment of air pressure. The AUTOSAG feature automatically determines the correct amount of sag, and eliminates the need to refer
to an air chart to determine the correct pressure based on rider weight. However, the shock still requires compression and rebound adjustment based
on type of terrain and rider weight. Please refer to the compression and rebound charts (page 19) following the setup steps.
NOTE: Shock air pressure can also be set up manually to rider preference.
Step 1: Setting Autosag
1. Position the shock compression lever or knob (blue) to the full open or off position
air valve cap (black) and the AUTOSAG valve cap (red).
. Remove the positive
2. Attach a high-pressure shock pump to the positive air valve
š All models except Epic and Safire: inflate to the rider’s weight in pounds (lb) plus 50psi. For kilograms,
multiply by three (e.g. 75kg = 225psi).
š Epic and Safire: inflate to the rider’s weight in pounds (lb) plus 100psi. For kilograms, multiply by two +
100psi (e.g. 75kg = 250psi).
NOTE: Do not exceed 350psi before activating the Autosag valve (this is a starting pressure only). After the Autosag is
activated, Fox recommends a maximum working pressure of 300psi when riding.
RockShox
Button
3. Make sure the rider is wearing all gear that would normally be worn on a ride (shoes, helmet, hydration pack if
used, etc.). Mount the bicycle, prop up against a wall, and sit in the saddle in a normal riding position. Do not
set sag while riding.
4. Press the AUTOSAG valve
(Fox: Air valve. RockShox: Grey button). Air will release as the suspension
settles into its pre-adjusted sag point. Make sure all the air is out and release the valve.
5. Cycle the shock a few times
, then dismount the bicycle.
6. Do not depress the AUTOSAG valve again, otherwise the proper sag setting will be lost, and will require this
procedure to be repeated from step #2.
7. Put the positive air and AUTOSAG valve caps back on.
NOTE: Rider weight in pounds (lb) plus the PSI (depending on model as described above) is the lowest amount of pressure that should be in the shock before
activating AUTOSAG. If the air pressure is too low, the AUTOSAG button may let air out of the negative chamber, which would result in incorrect sag.
NOTE: Sag is measured as the distance between the o-ring and the shock body’s seal, after the rider’s weight has been applied to the bike, with no
bounce. When AUTOSAG is correctly set, sag should measure approximately (20-30% of stroke, depending on riding/terrain experience, i.e travel).
If the rider is approaching 300lbs, AUTOSAG may not function, and sag may exceed the bike’s prescribed amount.
Step 2: Adjusting rebound
Refer to the chart to set the rebound damping (red knob). Rebound damping controls the rate at which the shock returns after it has been compressed.
„ Clockwise for slower rebound (slow speed, bigger hits).
„ Counter-clockwise for faster rebound (higher speeds, small bumps, more traction).
Step 3: Adjusting compression
Refer to the chart to set the compression damping (blue knob).
SPECIALIZED / FOX BRAIN FADE: Controls the inertia valve damping. The blue knob adjusts damping (Race Tune or Trail Tune) from firm
(clockwise) to soft (counter-clockwise) and does NOT completely lock out the shock.
Backing off from full firm can help with tracking in loose terrain conditions while riding off camber sections or climbing. The soft setting can also help
during lengthy downhill or rugged conditions where the rider may want the suspension active at all times.
FOX CTD: Provides varying levels of compression damping, depending on whether the rider is climbing, trail riding or descending.
„ C (Climb): The firmest low-speed compression setting is activated for maximum pedaling efficiency.
„ T (Trail): Moderate low-speed compression setting is activated for an optimal blend of pedaling efficiency and bike control on variable terrain.
Factory Series shocks offer three levels of Trail adjust. Performance and Evolution shocks are preset with low-speed compression damping.
„ D (Descend): Low-speed compression setting optimized for the perfect balance of control and plushness for steep, aggressive descents.
ROCKSHOX MONARCH RL:
„ Firm - compression is firmed up, providing a pedal platform for climbing and/or smooth hardpack.
„ Open - no pedal platform, unobstructed compression damping for trail riding and descending.

The recommended compression and rebound settings for the DB Air shock are based off a mean rider weight of 150-180 lbs (68-82 Kg). For any weight above or
below this range, it is recommended to adjust the rebound damping settings.
If the air pressure is lower than 125psi, rebound damping should be decreased (sped up). Above 150psi, rebound damping should be increased
(slowed down).
For additional shock setup information, please visit http://ww2.canecreek.com/products/suspension/db-air.
NOTE: Air pressures, rebound and compression settings are suggested starting point recommendations only. They should be adjusted
according to the rider’s needs for each type of terrain to achieve optimal performance.
NOTE: Not all shock pumps are 100% accurate. To ensure that the sag is set correctly, Specialized recommends that the sag be manually
measured after the shock is pressurized and the shock pump is removed.

COIL SHOCK SETUP
Step 1: Adjusting sag
„ Proper sag should be achieved with one turn of preload on the spring. More then two turns of preload will require a higher spring rate or not enough
sag will require a softer spring rate. See spring rate chart for additional information or refer to the shock manual.

Step 2: Setting rebound
Adjust Rebound (red knob):
Rebound damping controls the rate at which the shock returns after it has been compressed.
„ Clockwise for slower rebound (slow speed, bigger hits).
„ Counter-clockwise for faster rebound (higher speeds, small bumps, more traction).
Step 3: Setting compression
Vanilla RC / R: Adjust low-speed compression (small blue knob):
Low-speed compression damping controls slower wheel movement, which helps in pedaling efficiency and bike attitude.
„ Clockwise for a firmer platform and more efficient pedaling, greater resistance to small and medium bumps, more harshness.
„ Counter-clockwise for a more active, supple reaction to terrain, less efficient pedaling, less harshness.
„ Turn the compression adjuster knob to full firm and ride your bike for a while, then gradually reduce compression until it starts to feel too soft and
active for the terrain. Gradually increase compression until the optimal setting is found for the terrain and riding style.

CARBON FRAME INSTRUCTIONS
Specialized carbon frames utilize advanced composite materials that require particular care during assembly, storage and riding. This installation and
care guide contains instructions and warnings, plus torque specifications. Assembling a complete bicycle is a complicated task requiring training and
experience, only a trained and experienced bicycle mechanic should install components to this frame. Reference should also be made to Barnett’s or
some other comprehensive bicycle manual.
WARNING! Failure to follow these instructions may result in a catastrophic failure of the frame and/or its components while riding, which
may result in serious personal injury or death.
WARNING! Bicycle assembly is an art which requires training and experience. Do not attempt installation of any component if you do
not have experience and training as a bicycle mechanic.
To ensure the best assembly possible and to prevent any damage to the components or frame, follow all torque specifications. Please refer to the
specific owner’s manuals for each mating component’s correct torque specifications. If the mating component’s recommended torque exceeds the
frame’s recommended torque, use the lower torque specification. Due to torque considerations, not all components will be compatible.
WARNING! Failure to follow the torque specifications in this installation guide will void your warranty, but most importantly may result
in damage to the frame which may not be visible. If the frame is damaged, this can result in loss of structural integrity.
Bicycle components such as a handlebar, handlebar stem, seatpost, saddle, brakes, must be mutually compatible with each other, as well as the frame
and the intended use. Any doubt regarding compatibility should be discussed with your local Authorized Specialized Dealer.
WARNING! When placing the frame and/or bicycle in a repair stand, clamp the stand to the seatpost and not the frame. Clamping the
frame can cause damage to the frame that may or may not be visible, which may impair the structural integrity of the frame.
WARNING! Great care should be taken to not damage carbon fiber or composite materials, including the frame and any carbon fiber or
composite components. Any damage may result in a loss of structural integrity, which may result in a catastrophic failure. This damage
may or may not be visible in inspection. Before each ride, and after any crash, you should carefully inspect your bicycle for any dents,
fraying, gouging, scratches through the paint, chipping bending, or any other signs of damage. Do not ride if your bicycle shows any of
these signs. After any crash, and before you ride any further, take your bicycle to an Authorized Specialized Dealer for a complete
inspection.
Seatpost
Refer to your seatpost owner’s manual prior to installation. Specialized FSR frames have a 30.9mm or
27.2mm seatpost diameter and require that the seatpost have a tolerance of 30.78mm to 30.95mm or
27.08mm to 27.25mm. Do not grease the inside surface of the carbon seat tube!
Certain Specialized carbon frames use a quick-release seatpost binder. Since the components of this
assembly are in direct contact with carbon fiber, pay special attention to ensure proper tightness for the
seatpost when correctly tightened to specifications.
TECH TIP: Specialized recommends the application of carbon assembly compound (or carbon
paste) between the seat tube and seatpost to increase friction. See your Authorized Specialized
Dealer if you have any questions.
WARNING! Do not extend the seatpost above the minimum insertion line. Extension beyond
the minimum insertion line can result in failure, causing serious injury or death.
WARNING! Do not pull down on down tube derailleur cables to pre-stress the cables. This
can cause damage to the cable guides.
Your Specialized carbon frame does not require any bottom bracket or head tube pre-installation
preparation. All surfaces are already prepared from the factory, with the exception of greasing the bottom
bracket threads (threaded bottom bracket cups) and head set cups. For threaded bottom brackets, it is
acceptable to chase the bottom bracket threads if necessary. Do not face bottom bracket cups.
Bottom bracket
Oversized Bottom Bracket: Please refer to the carbon crank instruction guide (IG0276 - Crankset
- Carbon MTB Crankset) for assembly instructions and compatible tools. For crank compatibility
specifications, please refer to the carbon crank compatibility guide (CG0308 - Bottom Bracket Oversized MTB Bottom Bracket). All documents are available at www.specialized.com.
Headset installation / removal
Specialized carbon frames use a 1 1/8” (41.8mm x 8mm x 45°) Campagnolo Standard compatible
top and 1.5” (52mm x 7mm x 45°) bottom bearing, except Demo frames which use a 1.5” diameter
headset, top and bottom. Ensure that replacement bearings are compatible with the Specialized headset
specification. No tools are needed for installation or removal of both bearings. Grease bearing surfaces before installation.
