Dale, if I have you do my suspension, will it make me faster than Fritz?

Ok, just back from my first "real" ride since getting the Dale "E" O suspension and 70 degree tank installed. Topped off in town and headed to Carnegie (for anyone in the Bay Area, you know Carnegie is a dry rocky place, steep as hell and totally whooped out about this time of year). It's roughtly 18 miles there, to the dirt and I spent (kinda lost track of time) some time making about two solid laps around the park. I'll start with Wow...what a difference at the bottom of that place in the gravel pit/river bed...golf ball, baseball, softball sized rocks all mixed up nice...rode straight and true through it, felt well planted for riding on marbles. Then up into the hills for some easy-ish whooped out hill climbing...wheelie-ing over most of it, tapping the front and soaking up every 4th one or so (ok, maybe every 3rd to keep it real) but it held a line great and i never felt "bucked." Now for the ugly top of the back side, black diamond marked area called "Happiness Valley" where no ATV shall venture. Now this bike didn't feel as heavy! Heavy brakes on rutted rocky (I"m talking jagged pointy exposed) trails and all in a good standing position gripping the (kinda wider than what I'm used to) tank with my knees. Man it just wanted to roll...let off the brakes and it soaks it up...go faster and it gets even better...but be careful because I broke rule #1 and I was alone and there was NOBODY out there riding so I had to keep it somewhat mellow.

Ok so overall I'm very happy. Thank you Dale for a great setup. I'm sure I'll fine tune here and there but I still need some time to let this new spring settle in. One thing I noticed on that new tank...I'm getting a lot of presssure building up in there...is that normal? I noticed that in the stock vent line there's a one way valve...should I get rid of that or let the pressure build? I took the ball out of the gas cap (i thought to keep pressure from building). But back to the suspension...really nicely done. Very happy I spent the money and I love this 570 even more now.

Great way to end a Thursday!

Great!!!

I'm super glad to hear that you are happy with your suspension! Once you have a few hours on it just check the rear sag before adjusting any of the clickers, I can't stress getting the sag set right first. Having done that, give me a call and we can talk about how the bike is working and I will help you feather in the setting(s) with the clickers to your personal style. You will find this bike is very sensitive to small adjustments.

Thanks for the great review!

Dale

Ha! That's a great question! You seemed to be doing a great job keeping up on the Force Ride as it was.

I can't guarantee that you will be faster than Fritz, but, I can, and will guarantee that your bike will work way better than the stock settings.

Forks and shock sent to Dale, should be there tomorrow afternoon!

I can't wait to get my stuff back and ride!!

Thanks again Dale!

BTW, I installed my new 70 Degree tank last Friday, what a awesome idea! Quaility is top notch! I am now all smog free! With 3 gallons of fule and another half in my Giant Loop Mojavi I should be good for at least 110 miles!!

Be Blessed Brothers, Eric.

It's coming along fine E. Just need to go and pick your spring from the powder coaters and finish up.
