You do realise that the suspension has differnet responces to the rate of change? And that can be adjusted so you don't neeed to perform any adjustments when going from low speed cruising to high speed race track stuff? Ok... on most shocks those adjustments are internal .. but they are there and should be adjusted when your shock is serviced (say every two years for maintance reasons) .. if adjusted cortrectly you can sedt the low/medium/fast rates up to exactly what you want .. leaving the extenal adjustment for luggage adjustments only ..
