#!markdown We took this bike to SuspensionWerx for setup and found it had a medium spring in the fork and (I can't remember which) but a firmer one out back. Out of the box it was not balanced. We had the choice of either going firmer up front or softer out back, and Garrett chose firmer based on our conversation with James. With the tunability of the Double Barrel it came out really nice. Personally I find "baseline sag" numbers to be dependent on the rider, and a firmer setup is often preferred by riders who really go hard (including Garrett). Front-rear balance, as tuned through compression settings after the right spring is determined, does a lot more for a bike's performance on the trail than worrying too much about specific sag numbers.
