is it the front or rear that's instable?

I don't have to work today so I will ask my wife to check what happens when I get onboard. have not adjusted it.

As I said I found out that although the previous owner had ridden it at max extension, he must have dropped it to 2nd lowest setting on the rear shock before I took possession.

It is the front that is unstable.

I will do the check and go for a test drive and let you know. Thanks for all your help.

The only "off-road" bike I have previously owned was a 80's Honda xl500 with twin rear shocks. Otherwise I have owned road bikes. This means I have pretty much no experience on setting up a off-road bike for gravel
