    Custom Tuning your Nicolai.

    Now I've done it, I cannot believe I haven't gone down this route before....

    Who else is riding a bespoke custom tune......

    What shock / fork is it, who tuned it, what were your tune preferences and are you happy with the result ?

    minimum outlay compared to the bike's price yet the best upgrade imaginable !

    BOS S*Toy personally tuned by the man himself at TF Tuned and I said all this at the time 2yrs ago! Best upgrade ever.

    Garry AM, I thought BOS factory set them up for the frame? Was the TF Tuned tune in addition or instead of the normal setting.

    I bought it from them, we're members of the same cycling club and the same weight so Tim set it up for me himself on the bike

    30% sag, non/very rare pedal strike. I will reiterate here the correct way to measure sag is get on bike and jump up and down like mad then get a mate to support you and measure it.

    If you get any of the guys off here to help you'll certainly have sag! Perhaps I should have said current wife or Girl Friend .

    TLR, im runing 33% sag on the stock High Tune Vivid Air, pedal strike is inevitable but by calculating the pedal stroke i am able to get over the pedal strike espacially they are very irritaing on the climb. Espacially when previous i drop my DT swiss EXC150 to 120mm during climbs... the pedals are almost scraping the foor every cycle.

    Try it caculate your pedal stroke to pedal and stop pedaling to adviod rocks along the way... improves your balance too! hehe...

    wonder what will happen now with a 160mm front fork...
