    LBS near Stamford that does suspension tuning?

    I'm looking to dial in my suspension and I was hoping someone would know a LBS that really knows suspension tuning.

    I'm willing to drive up to an hour and a half which covers most of CT and the NYC metro area.

    Good luck and let us know if you find something. I usually deal with Bethel for a knowledgable crew, but I don't think they do much in the way of tuning. You could always give them a ring.

    Exhibit A: Fairfield County sucks for Mountain Bike focused shops.

    Dial in your suspension means what?

    1)You want to have it serviced? i.e. oil, internals, seals, and valving serviced and then tweaked/adjusted for your weight and ride style.


    2) you want to have someone who knows a ton about suspension help you tune the heck out of your suspension using the settings on the fork and shock to get it just right for you?

    if 1) - Craig at Avalance is CT based and knows more about this than anyone around on both, but doubt he'll help set up what you have: Avalanche Downhill Racing

    or Call Down Cycles in Montrose (near Blue Mt) and see if they can help you.

    If 2) - Next Sunday (21st) Wilton Woods join the regular 9:30am ride and I can help you out.

    Thanks for the response.

    I am looking more for #2. I am coming from riding hard tails and most recently rigid SS. SO suspension set up is completely over my head right now.

    I will try and hook up for a sunday ride. Been ages since I've been to wilton woods.
