Suspension Tweaking
« on: May 20, 2022, 06:59 AM »
Taking my bike to Bob Grant in Fife today for a suspension setup.
Silly question do I need to weigh myself before hand or is my weight not an issue? (Its is but thats a different story).

The only reason I ask is that Ive used Air sprung forks on my mountainbikes in the past and weight was obviously important.

Thanks

I would say weigh yourself in riding gear just in case, though I doubt he will be changing the rear spring to suit. Good luck.

If your going to be there with the bike I don't think you need to weigh yourself.  He should sit you on the bike and adjust sag with you on it job done.

If it looks like he can't get the feel he wants with available adjustment he will then advise next steps. If that involves different springs then he will need to know your weight to order new springs.
