Excellent. Clear, concise and free of macho bull.
The ONLY guide I’ve ever found that differentiates between real world roads and race track.

Helpful and realistic, a true masterclass.

A great approach to setting up your bike! Great for a suspension cabbage like me. :)
Rather than TELLING you what effect each adjustment has on your bike, YOU feel for yourself(and record) what each adjustment does. Find a nice route of a good few miles that takes in as many different road conditions as you can - smooth & bumpy straights, slow corners, fast sweepers, up hill, down dale, bumpy corners, speed bumps, potholes, raised white lines etc. This way you can have good, repeatable test conditions after every adjustment.

I didnt have a clue as to what I was doing when it came to the suspension setup on my 595, then I came across this.
Even then I approached it with a VERY healthy dose of respect but after about 5 mins I was relaxed and twiddling this adjuster and that adjuster thinking myself the god of all suspension.
You setup your suspension to suit you and the roads you ride not what is best for that model of bike.
It took me about 3 hours all in to set mine up and it is a COMPLETELY different bike now.
Well worth a read and following it, they guys that put this together know what they are talking about and it has been written for the masses so that even a complete suspension novice (me) could alter his and be VERY happy with it.
