    Andreani preload question

    Hey guys super happy with my setup. Went with Andreani carts and a Nitron shock. I’m messing around with the preload on the forks. Is it true there are 10 levels of preload? I’m using a 17 and can turn it what seems and infinite amount of times I can feel little “clicks”. I guess only the first 10 adjust preload?

    Thanks.

    I set my sag and everything just wanted to increase preload on the front to get rid of some speed wobble at high speeds (120-130)

    Mine don't have clicks at all, and the adjuster does not wind in or out of the fork cap, it adjusts the preload internally.
    I'm around 90 - 95 kg's with gear on, I have .88nm springs and run zero preload to give 42mm laden sag.

    No clicks on mine either. I have Racetech .95 springs and 7 wt oil with preload about 5 turns in. I am about 240 lbs. with gear. Using the bike for day rides and sport tour trips.

    Preload is used to set sag and nothing else..if you have the right sag,(front and rear) the preload will not help with your speed wobble.
