If money weren't an object, what upgrades or modifications would you make to your suspension to help it perform as best as possible?

Also, what are some of the best and worst ghetto fixes/mods you've made to your bikes over the years? I remember when you JB Welded a schrader air valve from a tube into your coil sprung Boxxer, for example.

Dave, what does a typical day of testing for a new suspension product/prototype involve for Rock Shox? What metrics do you try to quantify and how?

Added reply in a thread Which pins to remove from flat pedals? 11/13/2015 10:54 AM

You might also try a pair of pliers. When I remove pins (pretty rare), I usually remove pins near the center of the pedal first, which helps keep that nice concave shape.

Added reply in a thread Why are VitalMTBs forums so dead? 11/13/2015 8:34 AM

Valid question. There isn't a lack of MTBers on Vital MTB. It's actually the largest of all the Vital sites. Priorities are just a bit different for our users. We really do appreciate guys like yourself being active in the forum, however, so thank you! ... more »

Cheers for chiming in, Gauner. Appreciate your perspective and the added ride impressions from your time in Moab

You nailed it when you said, "Is it perfect? no." As reviewers we can't just rate bikes on their fun level (although that'd be fun in itself!). If we did, that $20 beach cruiser you have rusting away in your side yard would be a 5-star ride. See what I mean? We loved the Timp. It just needs a few things dialed in for it to really shine...
