iMoto Suspension? There’s an app for that!

I am a BIG proponent of riders experimenting with suspension settings.  Turn knobs, adjust preload, change geometry.  It allows riders to learn about their bike and see if they can make a well handling bike even better.  But there is a downside to doing that, notes!  In today’s age almost everyone has a smartphone or tablet at their disposal, enter iMoto Suspension.

iMoto Suspension is an app available on iPhone and Android that allows you to take some pretty accurate notes. The layout is nice and allows for quick note taking while out on a back road or trackside. Shortcomings like no notes or the inability to rename takes are easy to overlook when you compare it to all the other features you have at your fingertips.

Overall this is a handy little app to have at your disposal.  With the speed of entering data riders can enjoy their ride more and not worry about missing a setting.  And at only $.99 its well worth it!
