Feel like your bike isn’t quite reaching its full potential? Want to feel more confident on your bike and with faster lap times? A set up day could be just what you need.
Using World Cup level data logging equipment from Motion Instruments, and an experienced suspension technician to correctly interpret that data, TVB Tech takes the guesswork out of suspension setup and can quickly and accurately get your bike setup for your body weight and riding style, on the trails you like to ride.
Modern suspension units are incredibly efficient at isolating the rider from trail features, allowing people to ride with more control and confidence over increasingly demanding terrain. Independently adjustable high and low speed circuits mean each unit can be set up to respond exactly as required to almost anything. However, with such a wide range of adjustments on hand it can be difficult to know if your suspension is working as well as it could. A good suspension setup is for everyone, whether you’re trying to shave seconds off your race times, or just want to feel more confident on your bike.
We have three levels of suspension setup day to choose from; Gold, Silver and Bronze.
Join our experienced Suspension Technician for a one-to-one guided day of uplifted riding using the Motion Instruments Data Logger.
Expect trails picked to best match your preferred riding terrain, effective adjustments made after each run and in-depth suspension chats on the bus ride back to the top.
Best for those who haven’t ridden at Innerleithen before and those looking to learn as much as possible about suspension setup, the range of adjustments and how they can affect the ride of your bike.
