Naturally, any company who publish a book will slip in a few adverts to push their product. This one takes the mick though, Every other sentence is a sales pitch and it gets quite boring.

The information itself reads like a GCSE revision book insofar as it's all explained in a very simple and easy to understand age if you're 15. For a bloke in his 30's it's a bit annoying and you have to wade through loads of text before you stumble on a bit of pertinent information.

There are a few terms in the book which they manage to confuse with each other – sag, static sag and rider sag and seem to interchange quite frequently. It’s not so bad if you already understand these terms but if you’re picking up the book as a novice then you may spend a while before you figure out that they’ve used the wrong term.

Also note that the second half of the book is dedicated to pictures showing how to service various types of suspension units with a few “hilarious” snaps thrown in...

The book is as it says: A Bible. It gives you the initial knowledge of most of the suspensions' aspects without going too deep into a zone of a "trade secrets". Nice pictures and graphs.

If you want to study how motorcycles suspensions work this book is one of the best (if not the only).You'll find the latest technology.But for a insular european it's a bit racetech oriented and i would have like to go more inside the shims tuning.I doubt anyway you'll find a better one to start with.

Be careful, this isn't the easy guide to sorting your suspension as others have implied. Yes it covers all the technical and dynamic issues, but it doesn't give you any easy resolutions for specifc applications. You will also need to read and re-read it a number of times - well I did !!!

good information, it turns into a bit of a plug for their product, but this is the best source of reasonably modern info on bike suspension set up and geometry
