RECORD – RIDE – RATE – REPEAT – Until you get your suspension set up perfectly. Bike Setup lets you record the suspension settings on your mountain bike so that you can figure out for each bike and on different types of terrain, what feels good and what’s faster. Take a look at the demo below and or view it in the App store here.

This is actually pretty damn cool! There tend to be two types of mountain bikers: the 'I-just-ride-its' and the 'tweakers'. We definitely fall into the second camp here at Flow, so this app is right up our alley. Screen Shot 2014-01-21 at 7.47.16 AM You can get a hell of a lot more control and performance out of your bike if you do take the time to dial it in properly. A click of rebound here, 5 psi there more there - it can make a huge difference. The problem is keeping track of what settings you started with and what changes you've made, so you've got a point of reference. That's where this app comes in handy! You can enter your suspension settings, tyre choices and pressures, trail conditions and then record your observations for comparison. We'll be trail testing this app over the coming weeks, and we'll let you know what we think.
