FIVE TOP SUSPENSION TIPS
FROM NEIL PARKHOUSE
1 Be careful who you listen to, and take any advice with a pinch of salt unless you can really trust it!
2 Don’t be afraid to try change. If something isn’t right, it isn’t going to get any better unless you change it, and if it’s worse than it takes no time at all to change back!
3 Always make a note of what you do, no matter how small. Build a portfolio of settings for each circuit and you can go straight from the off!
4 In order to get a full feeling for the bike, try different levels of rebound, compression and preload to get a feel for what each change does!
5 You have to find YOUR perfect setting. Just because you’ve bought an ex-race bike, doesn’t mean it will suit your riding! Everyone is different.
