I have high hopes these will give the 800 a plush, more enjoyable ride. I wont have them in for a couple of weeks as my Hyper Pro shock will go in at the same time and Klaus is away untill the 22nd. I'll report back on the performance of the Bitubo's for those that are interested.

I'll be watching this thread...............:lurk



In the meantime , since I can't find much info on their website, how about some more detailed pics, maybe even some scans of the instructions with diagrams and settings?

You'd be an internet hero.

Where did you order them from? Bitubo directly?

I'm probably going the same route with the suspension once my work situation stabilizes. Right now I'm contracting and it's set to end soon. But I may get converted to an employee. If not, I might have something else lined up. So hopefully, in the next few months I can get the bike properly sprung and set up to lug someone of my heft around...

I gotta say, it does reasonably well with the stock suspension, but it's clear the front bottoms out too much and I have the rear preload maxed.

Not really. But judging by your avatar I guess you know more of that shipping company than I do. I't sure sounds Swedish though.:thumb

Do they have a website?

DockingPilot 06-01-2009 04:48 PM

I'm not sure.

Pomo 06-01-2009 06:40 PM

Googling the phone number comes up with http://www.herdan.com/.

Looks like they are a Bitubo dealer. :dunno

Bartron 06-01-2009 06:57 PM
