    Suspension Specialists


    What's up everyone! After having some heavy convo's with everyone regarding my newly purchased bike, I was told that bringing a bike to a suspension specialist is something that should be done.

    Anyone know of a good suspension specialist in MA to bring my bike so that all maintenance will be completed before riding season?

    One way to get an initial consultation and setup for free is to attend one of Tony's Track Days. Check with Pete in advance to make sure he'll be there, ride a session or two on your stock settings, introduce yourself to Pete, let him work his magic then finish the day on your newly adjusted suspension.

    It can be affordable to very expensive. It all depends on the route you want to take. I held a set of forks in my hands last winter that were 5500 a side. Thats 11000 for forks. However if youre like most of us youll be good with a simple revalve and respring. Im not exactly sure what the charges are but expect at least a couple of hundred to get the front end set. If you also want to put a shock in the price depends on what you get. You want either a Penske or an Ohlins. Both perform the same. Typically the penske run a little cheaper but not by much. It will probably run you between 900-1200 or so for a shock.

    You can search around and get a feeling for the price. We are pretty much on target with most. Im sure if you search hard enough you can find a low baller somewhere but its not worth it in the end. Bring it to us and we will make sure its right before it leaves the shop.
