Here's a quick tip for optimizing your front suspension while mountain biking.

On the Fox Shox 36 suspension fork, you will notice two valves on the side facing the rear of your bike. Before each ride, make sure to push in both of these valves. This will equalize the air pressure in your front shock and prevent "stiction" in the fork. Stiction is where your fork is basically stuck so it's not sliding smoothly to create that compression you want for the suspension to work properly.

Taking that one extra second to equalize the air pressure in your front suspension will make a noticeable difference in the quality of your ride, especially if you have had changes in air temperature, air pressure, or are riding in another location.
