    Dude. Not convincing anybody of anything other than that you're a punkass hothead who got in a disagreement with him.
    Perhaps you'll find people more willing to work with you if you don't act like a tard.


    edit: Shocklesses lengthy diatribe this is in response to has disappeared.

    Excellent experience with Isotuned/Drake here...easy to get a hold of. Only took a week to get my new, custom tuned fork...Lyrik Solo Air RC2 DH. 170mm internally spaced to 160mm. It would've only taken 1 day to ship when ready but I made the drive to pick it up. His shop is NICE and is the real deal. Be prepared to learn a thing or two when you talk to him because he WILL drop some knowledge/specs/tech info on you!

    Drake is SOLID... reworked my 40 with a custom tune to my specs and had it back on my bike for a session I could not miss... fork never felt so damn good.

    My vote is in

    Hey Drake, Ive got to get down to see you, my fork is clunking something bad when it rebounds off of even the smallest of jumps. And my rebound damping is tuned to the slowest setting. Also, it doesnt seem like there is much difference, if at all, between the slowest and the highest. Anything you can think of off the top of your head?

    Edit: ok so my rebound cart is blown. It's being sent back to fox. What is the normal turn around time on a fork?

    I have had my RP2 and Lyrik tuned and serviced by Drake. Good Communication and service. Needless to say his work is great, bike feels completely different now. It ROCKS! I highly recommend ISO

    I sent mine in last week and hope to get it soon. To set up this deal, I have to mail it over to him, I called and left a message on Saturday evening. He returned my message by calling me on a Sunday morning! He's on it as far as customer service goes. He likes to chat and is very good at what he does. Back in 2009 he serviced the same shock and when the shock needed another service I didn't hesitate to call him up. It is about the same distance for me to ship it to the FOX Shox wh up near Monterey as it is to him in Murrieta and I chose him. His work is fair priced.

    Drake took care of me. I was a repeat customer. I called him up he remembered me from a year ago even what i did for a living, Took my RP23 down to him on Thursday and I got it back in the mail on Saturday. Havent had a chance to ride it yet but i am sue it will work flawlessly. Thanks Drake

    He's still doing suspension. I just got my Lyrik back from Drake today. Very quick turn around. I dropped it off Tuesday got it back today (Thurs).
    Now, if I could only find the time to ride. :-k
