There are a lot of threads on the forum asking questions about suspension set-up.
I think it would be good to sticky a guide to suspension set-up for all users to easily find.

@steve_sordy just posted an excellent and fairly thorough PDF guide to suspension set up in the commencal forum.
Here:

Everyone wanting to gain a decent understand of how to set-up their suspension should have a read through this honest and easy to understand guide on suspension set-up.

Seb Stott's video guide on basic set-up is very good too
