TECH TALK: Suspension Tuning and Trail side Repairs
Cyclepath will host this month’s Tech Talk with guest presenter Tori Bortman of Gracie’s Wrench. If you’ve been curious about what to do if your bike breaks on your ride or what suspension adjustments can do to your ride, come to this month’s Northwest Trail Alliance member meeting!
Dial in your squish. Suspension setup can make or break your ride but dialing it in can be intimidating. The experts at Cyclepath will show us how to set up our suspension for the type of trails we ride, with an emphasis on adjustments for lighter riders. We’ll get familiar with the suspension systems on our bikes, such as sag, dampening, volume spacers and shock pressure, and discuss how even tire pressure can help us maximize our squish.
Fix it on the fly. Broken chains, flat tires and bent rotors or derailleurs do not have to signal the end of your ride. Tori will go over some preventative maintenance, must-haves in your tool kit and quick trail side repairs you can make on the fly.
Bring your questions! These will be open discussions with plenty of time to ask questions of the experts. While we won’t be dialing in individual bikes, please feel free to bring your favorite steed and park it inside the shop.
When: Tuesday, April 30th; 6-7pm social/beer hour, 7-8pm info hour.
Where: CyclePath, 2436 NE MLK Blvd, Portland OR 97212
