Cool Shock Adjustments!



This is just a little simpler to understand than stock. Gotta love it!

Great Quote - One would think that the Secret Service was smart enough to get serviced secretly.

I remember seeing it when the bike was released and noting how cool I thought it was, this one was too easy.

That's almost Grouch-proof!



Background: Last year, I spent a couple weekends adjusting my fork rebound thinking it was my compression. I learned that cranking in more rebound damping is NOT gonna stop your forks from bottoming!

In my defense, I had been off the bike for 9 months due to a shoulder injury and wasn't thinking quite straight...just wanted the bike to stop pissing me off.

Oh jeez! I was comemnting on the presence of both high and low speed compression and rebound...

You guys all saying "that's easy" had me thinking "Man, these guys really understand suspension if they are able to dial in each frequency."

...then I realized you were talking about the markings on the adjusters.
