Hey, Bones; sorry about the delay. I was watching the ballgame.
Preload at 1-3/4 to 2 turns out. 1-3/4 turns is supposed to be factory stock for a 150 lb. rider. Most of the guys at Cycle World fall around that range, and most of the riding was done on fairly well paved roads. For those of us that are heavier, we will need to experiment further. But their adjustment gives and idea of the direction to be headed.
Heavier riders on rougher surfaces will definitely need to maintain more pre-load.
