Free sag on a dirt bike

What is free sag on a dirt bike (Article in the dirt bike sag 101 series)

Free sag on a dirt bike is the suspension measurement with the wheel of your dirt bike off the ground. This means the suspension has no weight on it whatsoever.

Or put this another way, and in particular with reference to “free sag” it’s how much your shock absorber drops when there’s no weight pushing through the suspension from the wheel.
