    Glossary of terms.... Pro Pedal, SPV?????

    Is there a glossary of terms for the shock world? I am brand new to the cycling world and would like to know what everyone is reffering to when using terms such as Pro Pedal or SPV.

    These are brand names for basically the same type of technology. Fox brand shocks have "ProPedal" and Manitou shocks have "Stable Platform Valving". The Manitou is licensed from Progressive CVT (not sure what that stands for). They use different mechanisms to perform the same task which is add a threshold for the compression to overcome. This keeps the shock firm while pedalling for maximum efficiency. Once the shock hits a significant bump, the threshold is reached and the shock compresses. They do this by preloading shims, effectly holding them from opening until the threshold is reached.
