With all the importance placed on suspension I'm surprised I can't find any independent benchmarking for the various manufactures. There are plenty of reviews and personal opinions but a lack of hard numbers (rebound/compression rates) from an independent body running any controlled benchmarking. Am I not looking hard enough or is there such a body out there. It would be an interesting write up as it would lay out options in black and white for the everyday rider/track rider. The justification for high priced packages, springs, forks, cartridges etc could be justified more easily and it would identify those lagging behind. Id be interested to hear or read any info or thoughts you have on this.
