As I tested at more tracks that were deteriorated and rough I noticed how the suspension still wasn’t the way I wanted it. I started go stiffer on my shock settings, so the bike wouldn’t wallow through rollers and could track more and not dance around so much on me. I noticed this helped in the fast and rough sections of most tracks, allowing me to attack with more confidence. I am still not a huge believer in the air fork, but with the way the manufacturers are all going we will have to get used to it sooner than later! After messing with the air fork for a while I decided I would try the Race Tech Spring Conversation Kit, which eliminates your air forks. If you are like me and keep it “old school” and like a lot of front end feel this is a must. I did not have to check air pressures before every ride; I just unloaded the bike and went riding. Just like old times! Race Tech was very courteous to giving me a set up that met my needs right off the bat, so it made things bit easier to get comfortable. The front fork felt plusher over square edge and I could hit the rougher part of the track instead of trying to find ways around it. Leaning into corners I felt like I had more traction and front end bite, especially when the ground got hard packed. I am going to test a race Tech spec’d rear shock soon, so stay tuned.
