So, version 2 of these things has been on sale recently ($120) plus I had some rocky mountain bucks so I went ahead and got one. I had put on a fox shock last winter but never bothered to set the sag (I'm a very, very lazy mechanic). If nothing else buying this thing motivated me to finally take care of that (which is saying something as I had to take the subframe and exhaust apart to access the shock adjuster locking screw). It was way off, like more than an inch soft for both race and static sag. I think with this thing being so easy I'll stay on top of the sag better (I set the sag on my kx when I first got the suspension back from Allen and then never touched it again although I lost about 20 lbs - lazy). I haven't checked the front yet.

Maybe I'll even set the sag on my street bikes. I should do something about the shock on my cbr either way. I bought a low miles one from ebay to replace the stocker that now has 64k miles on it. I did the forks recently so it's a little unbalanced (not that I can tell so much).

Anyway, if anyone wants to try the slacker out let me know.

Are you hoping they will get a flat during the process so you can laugh at someone in retaliation? :killingme:

There's nothing funny about flat tires, Jannis. Tubes have feelings too!

Ken, sag is needed when you actually ride a bike.
