    Suspension setup. Recommended places around my location

    Hi all. I'm looking for somewhere to take my bike,
    to have a complete suspension setup done. To suit my style of riding.( I'm no racer just a plod a longer with a bit of a blast every now and then) and my height and weight etc. As the bike is just not filling me with any confidence at all. I live in glossop Derbyshire. I'm not far from Manchester/Stockport./ Yorkshire . Any help or recommendations very much appreciated. Thanks steve

    Dan at Dan's in Stone. Has also done a fair bit of proddy racing. Set mine up for easy road with equal bounce front and rear for my load with a smidgen of forward bias.

    I went last summer with 3 of my mates took the morning to do all 4 bikes, but mine took the longest cos he said it was the worst set up bike he'd worked on (& that was from factory) did take a few weeks to get in

    Well bikes been into mick gardner today. Suspension was all over the place way to soft .
    All done the best he can get it. Considering my size he said. The bike feels miles better. Even on the short twisty ride over the woodhead pass. He suggested uprating the forks springs to get the best out of it.
