suspension

  As a new owner I am still messing with buttons.

  Went for a ride last night and changed the setting from rider onlyto rider with luggage as I am 17 1/2 stone and had read on here the bike was designed with an 85 kilo rider in mind.
  Did I imagine it or does the bike rise slightly?  Felt slightly better for me too although I struggle to feel any difference between dynamic and road mode.

Yes the bike raises slightly as it is adjusting the preload for more weight

Yep, Ryan is correct, it extends the stilts a tad as it winds on a little rear preload.
