What is RockShox threshold?
It’s RockShox’s ‘Threshold’ lock-out that a lot of you will have encountered on RockShox suspension forks. This keeps things at the sag point (so your bike’s geometry stays normal) and sort of puts a stranglehold on the damping circuit to really reduce suspension movement.
How much air do I put in my RockShox shock?

How much sag do you get from rear suspension?
For the rear shock – 20% – 30% sag is recommended. For the most part, this can be used across the board for trail bikes and downhill bikes. Again, keep in mind you may want more or less sag depending on your bike, weight, and riding preferences. For the front fork- 10% sag is recommended.

Sag is the amount your suspension compresses under your weight and riding gear. Sag range should be set to 15–20% of total fork travel.
How much does a shock mount cost?

What shock hardware do I need?
One way to measure the width of the shock hardware is to measure the distance between the shock mounting tabs on the frame of the bike. To get the same measurement, you may also measure the width across the shock eyelet. Lastly, to find the shock bolt diameter, measure the inner diameter of the hardware eyelet.
