Video: Suspension setup

How your front and rear suspension works, and how to tweak it

TF Tuned talk us through suspension setup

Every week we’re going to be bringing you a highlight from the footage on our BikeRadar media player. There’s everything on there from trade shows to workshop tutorials, plus some idiotic stunts sent in by our readers.


We’d like to get you involved too – send us your riding clips from the trail or the road. As long as you don’t add any backing music you/we don’t own the copyright to, we’ll get your video on the player. Send your video files here.

This week, we’ve chosen some Mountain Biking UK footage where suspension tuning expert Tim Flooks of TF Tuned talks us through the ins and outs of front and rear suspension – what they both do and how to set them up properly. Hopefully it’ll help your riding.
