    If you don't have lockout whether or not you need it is a bit academic. I use it for long fire road climbs, often just because it's there and feel I should use use it, but I find off road I don't really need it - minimal pedal bob anyway.
    To set up, set sag at around 25% of travel, set rebound midway and experiment with what feels best for you with small adjustments.
