Suspension

“When suspension works correctly the bike will be much more enjoyable to ride.”

“When suspension works correctly the bike will be much more enjoyable to ride.”

This about sums up my experience taking Super-bike coach’s suspension setup workshop.

I mean, I thought I had done a pretty good job of adjusting and customizing my bike. Well, to say it upfront: Nope. Once I let go of my resistance to having someone else know better what was good for me, I experienced first-hand what a huge difference a well set up bike can make, not just on the track, but also on the road.

Coach Can patiently showed me how to test and adjust my suspension, and then fine-tuned it himself to perfection.

I think my big moment of insight came in the afternoon, when I hit the little 99 track after making yet another set of adjustments, and suddenly, I could FEEL the track. I KNEW how much traction I had, and thus the size of my envelope, and with that, of course, grew confidence instead of uncertainty. The bike responded faster and with more accuracy, and I was able to ride the lines that I saw clearly in my mind.

It turns out, this translated directly to the road, with faster cornering, bigger envelope, and most importantly, more fun!

Thank you Coach Can and Team!
