Pro Suspension Setup

1-on-1 Suspension Coaching
Sometimes it’s easier to get help in person. Dirt Craft offers in-person setup help for all mountain bike suspension. We’ll meet you trail-side and help get your bike completely dialed in, working with the current suspension that you already have. This includes basic air volume or spring tuning on shock and fork, as well as dialing in pressures and clicker settings.
$150 per bike (includes installation of volume tokens or springs but not the cost of parts)

Drop-Off Setup
If you don't have the time or desire to do this process in person, drop your bike off and let us set it up for you! This process isn't quite as good as doing it together, but it will result in a bike that is a very good baseline - an excellent option if you're lost and need help.
$95 per bike (includes installation of volume tokens or springs but not the cost of parts)

Dropper Seatpost Services
We service most dropper seatposts! This component takes a beating and it's good to keep it fresh. Due to the wide variety of designs, cost is variable.

Frame Bearing Replacement
Full suspension frames need bearing attention sometimes. We have the tools and expertise to get this done the right way. This is very critical for suspension performance and longevity of frame components. We recommend 1-2 year intervals depending on riding frequency and other factors.

Everything Else
We can service almost anything. If you have a particular need, let us know!

Direct brands are awesome. They can be a great value - especially for somebody just getting into the sport. Most direct bikes arrive close to fully assembled - others need more attention. In either form, we can finish out the setup and make sure everything is trail ready. This includes a check on all nuts and bolts, wheel true if needed, installation of tire sealant, etc.
