measuring actual suspension travel
I've read about setting spring sag to obtain recomended travel values and I've tryed it.I've put a band around the fork stancion that reveled compression movement to within 1 1/4 " of the 6.3" of total travel,this was on my routinely riden rough back road.What is a method of measuring actual travel of front and rear suspension movement both compression and rebound.Another way to put it is how do you tell if your reaching the limits of travel in both directions?
Update;Solved with plastic tubes, o-rings and duct tape,it all looks so simple now.
