Pretty much what I thought!

I didn't watch it (I've got better things to do) but one of the commenst on the video says it took 3 of them to set up one bike!

If that's the future I'm staying Retro!

It's only like using the auto tyre pressure machine for your car with a bit more tech.
If people make it there is always someone going to buy it.

As more forks/shocks get more complicated to set up, this will allow the rider to get the correct setting and the best performance out of the bike.

No doubt it will be a lot of money but a good idea would be for shops to use this and provide a more accurate fitting service then give the settings to the customer for future use.

Ideal for pros but not really your average rider :?

I quite like it. What about if you lose some pressure taking pump off though?

I would think with the amount of tech they have used they would take that into account, prob use a zero loss valve. :)
