Mountain suspension can be quite confusing! In this video, we take a detailed look at everything that makes a mountain bike shock. We explain the basics, such as coil or air-sprung. But also nerd out things such as shim stacks, high and low-speed rebound damping, volume spacers (often branded as 'tokens') and even explain what IFP stands for, and what exactly it does! 🤓🤘 Subscribe to GMBN Tech: http://gmbn.tech/subscribetogmbntech Pick up official GMBN merch: https://gmbn.tech/va Follow us on Instagram or Facebook! @gmbntech Sign up to the GMBN newsletter: https://gmbn.eu/newsletter Please submit your content to our uploader: https://upload.gmbn.com/tech we love to check out what you have been up to and may feature it on the show!
