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?

Reply to 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.
Reply to Why are VitalMTBs forums so dead? 11/13/2015 8:34 AM

To paraphrase a recent conversation Vital had with a person high up at a major bike company: DH makes the sport and brand look sexy, Enduro sells bikes. Both are valuable and have their place.
