How to adjust your Cynic Dual Brace How to adjust your Cynic Dual Brace

Ok, with alot of folks getting there braces in the next week, I thought I would post this article about how to add tension to the brace. It is only somewhat effective in reducing hop without pre tensioning. If you have a dual brace and it is properly adjusted, you will not get any. You may start to feel a little of the oscillation while your wheels are spinning at 5000 rpm, but deal with it.

This article just talks about one side of the dual brace, just treat each side independently. Don't try to adjust both. Do one, then do the second.

Loosen the nut at the top of the brace. It is a 17MM. Just a half twist, enough for you to be able to unscrew the eye hook.

Unscrew the eye until it is only held in by about 3 or 4 rotations. Start screwing it in little by little until you are able to squeeze the bolt through and be able to grab it with the nut on the other side. Once it grabs tighten it down.

VERY IMPORTANT. After a few weeks, repeat. It will settle in, and then lose a lot of its tension. You will be amazed at how many more rotations you will be back the pistons up and still able to fit on there after a couple weeks.


After taking that pic, i still got another two revs out.

The watermark kind of gets in the way on this pic.
