Tech Clinic: Fundamentals Of Suspension Tuning

Friday March 1st | 6pm At Fat Tire Farm PDX

 

Basics of suspension function, tuning, and setting up your bike's suspension for you.

Hosted at the Fat Tire Farm and in partnership with Traction Works Suspension Shop, we're dedicating an evening to diving into suspension setup for modern mountain bikes. 

It's all about the fundamentals. Starting with suspension function and exploring how certain suspension adjustments changes how your bike handles on the trail. We're also taking the time to assist you in getting a baseline setup on your own personal bike. We want you to leave the clinic feeling confident setting up your suspension.

Learn more about what will be learned via the link below. There's only 15 spots available for this free, small-group clinic - so sign up ASAP!

Dig Day: Rocky Point

With NWTA  |  Sunday, February 25th

We're teaming up with Northwest Trail Alliance to host a dig day at Rocky Point Trail Network. The focus for the morning is to give the Rocky Point classic, Bob's Yer Uncle, some much needed love.

The morning consists of fixing and improving sections of trail and making sure the trail flows as it should. Who knows, we may even get to sample the fruits of our labor after the dig if conditions call for it.

Dig days of this caliber typically wrap up around lunch time with a post dig meal provided (thanks Charlie), with snacks and beverages on hand as well. Please let us know if you have any dietary restrictions!

These dig days are a great way to give back to your local trails, do work that makes a difference for so many, and one of the best ways to dive deeper in the local mountain bike community. If you're considering this as your first dig day, we warmly encourage you to come!

Get all the details and sign up by hitting the link below. Hope to see you there!
