    Next Basic Suspension Workshop-Part 2, July 6 Fri night!

    (Starting in 2012, this workshop will be at my new office location in Belmont! See below for the address.)



    You're invited the next Basic Suspension Part Two Workshop!

    Here's the only catch:  It's limited to 35 riders because we will be taking apart and examining the internals of a set of forks.  Yes, you'll see the innards of the thing and see how it works to gain a deeper understanding of how suspension works.  Those who attended the last Basic Suspension Workshop (Level 1) will get first priority. 

    One month there was even a guy that flew from Colorado to attend the workshop and flew back the next morning!

    What: Basic Suspension Part Two
    When: July 6, 2012, 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm
    Where: Doc Wong's Full Motion Chiropractic Office
              Carlmont Village Shopping Center
              1021 Alameda De Las Pulgas
              Belmont, CA 94002
    Cost: $0.00
    How to sign up:  just e-mail me at:

    The Suspension Seminar Part 2, should be extraordinarily interesting tonight, we will go through the normal presentation portion of the program and will vary from the previous format by adding a lab where I'll be setting up afolding card table to perform a complete "piece by piece" dissection process on a full front fork assembly, and a rear shock assembly, while the students observe.  We'll be identifying the function of each individual item,as it's removed.  Should be a very educational experience, and rare opportunity for the riders in attendance.  I'm excited about implementing this new "twist" on the suspension training program!

    If there's any room left, and I expect there will be, you can attend IF youalready have a basic working knowledge of suspension and are familiar withsetting the sag adjustment on your bike.

    You'll also get a working knowledge of how compression and rebound works ona bike by actually adjusting the suspension.

    "The format for The "PART 2" seminar looks like this:
    1.  Spring "Preload": "Setting proper "SAG", a quick review"
    2. Compression & Rebound : "Solving the mystery"
          3.   Dissembling a set of forks and examining it's internals
    4. Advanced suspension tuning: "Going beyond the factory":
    .. Wheelbase
    .. Fork tube height
          . Fork oil level/viscosity
    5. Troubleshooting common bike handling complaints (student contribution)
    6.   Cartridge fork dissembly
    7. Final Question & Answer session
    This will be a 2 hour (non-riding) workshop held on Friday night 6:30PM-8:30PM at my office in Redwood City.
