Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to leave my bike with you in advance?
Nope. The beauty of the Motion Instruments system over others is that it's designed around the World Cup circuit. The instruments are quick to install and remove and data is generated instantly.
Do I need to service my fork and shock in advance?
You don't have to but it's not a bad idea. If we do the set-up and then you get a shock service your setting may be out slightly.
If you get a service, then do the set-up, you should be able to use those setting again after your next service.
If you're in North Wales, I'd highly recommend Indi Cycle Works. Find them on Instagram or Facebook.
Do you look at braking data?
No. I've looked into this and brake data is not useful to everyone. If you are at bike design stage then its useful. If you want rider coaching it may be useful (if you have a well informed coach and data analyst).
Motion IQ is purely for suspension and the best for it's intended purpose.
Will I have to ride alone?
No. It's really up to you. If you want to bring a friend that's fine (they may have a little more waiting around than on a normal uplift day). If you want I'll join you for a few laps but only if you're happy enough with that. It actually is quite useful for me to see how quick you are.
Do I need to know about suspension set-up?
Not at all. In fact, most pro's struggle to describe what the bike is doing. That's the whole point of collecting data.
