Lower Your Bike While Maintaining Performance
A ride-height modification is the process of reworking the internal suspension components to lower the ride-height of the bike. It’s commonly referred to as lowering the suspension. By modifying the suspension internals, we can limit the amount of travel the forks and shock have. The end result loses minimal performance of the suspension action while shortening the distance from ground to seat.
Anyone who would like their bike lowered to more easily touch the ground may benefit from a ride-height modification. If you’re slightly “vertically challenged”, lowering your bike may improve your stability and confidence while riding.
Want To Better Touch The Ground?
Drop off or ship your suspension to us to have it lowered. If you have any questions, we'll be sure to answer them for you. Contact us today to get started!

What Are The Limitations?
The biggest limiting factor of a ride-height modification is that the suspension does lose some travel. At higher speeds, and especially with larger impacts, the suspension won’t react quite the same as with full-travel. What this means in action is that you may not want to hit a set of car whoops in fifth gear, or launch that sixty-foot triple. Aside from the more extreme hits, our modifications keep most of the handling character. So, if you’re playing around in the desert, riding through the trails, or cruising around the vet track, your bike will still handle predictably well.
There is a special consideration, which applies if your bike has a kickstand. We’ll need to modify your kickstand to match the new ride-height, otherwise the stand would be too tall. If you’re shipping or dropping off your suspension separate from the bike, make sure to send us the kickstand as well and we’ll modify it to match.
