Tired of paying $300-$400 for the old tech that's been around for years and offered by name brands in the cycling industry that you trust? Get the latest and greatest for less. Note: may require upgrading your ride to a hybrid.
Enjoy!

hmmmm the Shock wiz sounds cool..  Maybe get a few ppl to chip in and grab one :)  $300 is a bit much for me and my non-racing self.
Though I'd guess most who have ridden and tuned their suspension for a few years probably have what works for them, even if it wouldn't be "mathematically ideal"

I could see some shops buying some of the Shock Wiz and then renting them out to riders for a day.  Assuming it does what it is promising.
