    Best Suspension tech in the valley?

    I thought I saw a thread on this but cant seem to find it. I am looking for the best suspension tech in the valley. I have a Diamond DVO fork that I am looking to have the lowers replaced and serviced.

    Go see Morgan at Rage. He's worked on many a dvo. Stillwell looks good for custom tuning. Good to know!

    I like the vid on the Stillwell site showing them putting the suspension to the TEST at Brown's Ranch!

    For custom tuning I recommend Scotty at the Bean or Dave at Fat Tire. Both in Sedona.

    They are right out off of dynamite in Rio Verde. I bumped into a guy out at browns that swears by the work they do. He said they will even meet you somewhere in Scottsdale if need be to make the exchange.

    not sure about street motos, but i am sure he does all sorts of stuff that I do not know about.

    yes, right off of 155th place on the south side of Dynamite.

    My brother used to have them do all of the tuning for his kids bike.

    They are top of the line for MX i was told.

    Don't know about tuning, but for maintenance and whatnot, I totally trust Morgan at Rage and he did a full service on a DVO Diamond I had awhile back.
    Just like a raindrop, I was born to fall.

Kevin was super helpful and I have since dropped off my SB6 (MRP STAGE and FOX FLOAT X w/ Vorsprung Corset) for the same treatment. I cant wait to get it back.

    Thank you for the advice!

    How long did it take as far as the rebuild process with them?

    1 week. A few caveats tho...I run non-standard suspension (DVO, MRP) so they had to order parts vs. having them in stock. The other item was, I didnt schedule. I just stopped by. It was about 2 days from when they received the parts.

    My suggestion would be to call ahead and set a time. If you have standard stuff (Rockshox, Fox) you should be good to go in a few days.

    That's still a really quick turnaround for a custom tune and you can pick it up locally vs. dealing with shipping.
