I wouldn't call this a review just yet, but I did pick up a ShockWiz yesterday. Ran it today on my daughter's Intense M9 at Highland Bike Park. She has a Fox 40 up front and a Cane Creek Double Barrel Air on the back. My bike is coil 40 and CCDB Coil on the back, so the ShockWiz is of no use on my M9. The thing that would be interesting today is to see how close the setup we had already found on her bike is to what the ShockWiz recommends.

These next two photos are screenshots of my phone looking at data from the rear shock. We did the fork in the morning. It was actually really close and we didn't change air pressure at all (might soften it a touch later), and only gave 1 0r 2 clicks on the LSC and the HSR. You can see that on the rear shock we don't even have complete data. We did only two runs, and I think it was sagged so deep that it didn't really collect Compression data. Also, I didn't realize that you need to start a new "session" every time you adjust the shock. That may have messed it up too. Live and learn.

ShockWiz just another tool in the tool box.

It certainly looks like pretty cool device, but with the price they are selling it for around here, I guess I will be setting my fork and shock the way I did till now... based on my feeling, even if it's probably not optimal :)
