Video: How air spring volume spacers work
When bike manufacturers spec the suspension tunes, they try to deliver a product that will work well for a wide range of riders. If you fall outside that average range, your suspension may feel too soft or too harsh.

Using air volume spacers can have a magical effect on suspension, but how do they actually work? For that, we turn to Steven Mathews, the owner of Vorsprung Suspension.
