  • Page 5 Platform Valve On bikes equipped with a Manitou Stable Platform Valve™ (SPV)™ rear shock, you can adjust the bike’s pedaling efficiency by increasing the air pressure in the SPV air cartridge. Increasing the air pressure will resist pedal-induced bobbing. Decreasing the air pressure will make the suspension more sensitive to small bump forces.
  • Page 6: Air Shick Set-up

    AIR SHOCK SET-UP Giant cross-country and trail bikes feature an air shock equipped Maestro suspension design. All rely on sag for proper riding performance. SETTING AND ADJUSTING MAESTRO (ANTHEM) SAG (air shock) 1. Pump the main air chamber to a psi (pounds per square inch) equivalent to rider’s body weight .
  • Page 7: Front Suspension Travel & Sag Guide

    FRONT SUSPENSION TRAVEL & SAG GUIDE To determine bike’s front suspension travel adjustments and recommended settings, please refer to the fork manufacturer’s technical manual. A suspension fork is effective at both absorbing bump forces and helping the tire to track the ground for improved traction and braking control. When in active mode, a fork will rely on sag to keep the front tire in better contact with the ground during braking.
  • Page 8: Maintenance

    Maintenance General Maintenance Inspect all suspension bolts and tighten if necessary to required torque settings. Do not use high-pressure water sources to wash or rinse bicycle. Doing so can displace any lubricants that are present, as well as possibly forcing water and/or contaminants into the bearing that can harm the pivot and bearing, reduce performance, and cause premature wear.
