And for we "Yanks," on the other side of the pond, a Stone is 14 lbs. So fully kitted, Edmund weighs 196 lbs.

I don't know how to answer the question. I mean I weigh "14 stone," and I guess Orion sags a bit, on soft, but I never measured the sag.

I just hit the key and go!

I'll keep it simple, crank the preload adjusters in all the way. The springs are progressive rate and the weaker part of the spring rate compresses first (dives when braking). The stronger part of the spring rate is just right for you.
Set both your compression and rebound damping at 8 clicks out, and tweak to your preferences.
