Re: Peneske 8983 Shock
only if it was a triple clicker....
One that note, I just had Ohlins (carts) forks and shock serviced and installed by Ed Sorbo (Lindemann Engineering) and I asked about double vs. triple penske shock. He said he always ran a double clicker on his race bikes. He said the triple isn't worth the money and hardly makes a difference...basically little value for the price. If you're on the fence, give Ed a call and ask him what he thinks. He spent an hour on the phone with me explaining some of his suspension theory before bringing him my bike to make sure I knew what I was getting into.
I found a good deal on Ohlins cartridges and shock. Ed serviced, revalved and changed the springs for $755 (and installed them on the bike). The bike feels amazing. I've only ridden to work, but it is very noticeable. I was expecting the ride to be harsh on the freeway, but it's not. I get great drive getting on the gas and no dive on the brakes. After spending some time talking to Ed, I am impressed. He really knows his stuff and I am very happy with his work and service. I can't wait to do a canyon run and a track day.
