    I'm sure we could find some space for you. Wouldn't happen to be a guy named Landon would it?

    Looks dreamy. I can't wait till my wife finally is out of grad school and we can have lives

    No it's a guy named Sean. We are in business together and he seems like a cool cat

    presta valve pressure gauge recommendations? I usually just use the gauge on my floor pump, but want to pick up a small gauge to take on the bike to change pressures.

    I have the Fox shock pump and it’s pretty good for $25.

    I've never found a shock pump or tire pressure gauge that was super accurate. I just found the pressure that works with the equipment that I have with trial and error, then use that same equipment for a repeatable result. So my fork pressure may not be exact 73 PSI, but the fork feels just right at 73PSI on MY shock pump.

    yeah I mean anything close would work for me. I just know starting my ride at Monte Sano I'd like to be like 30psi to climb the road...then drop to like 20-22 for the trails and I don't have an accurate way to do that.

    shock pump would obviously be a set and be good...not changing on the fly

    Yep, repeatability > accuracy. At least that way when you find an "indicated" pressure that works, you can get that same mark again on demand.

    Anyone got $800? Enve has that auto inflation system that is supposedly accurate to like .1 PSI.

    I have this one. I like it. I want to say you can set it to beep at certain pressure. I haven’t figured it out though haha

    Interesting, I’ve had mine for maybe a year and it seems fine. The only comparison I have is my lezyne pump, which I’ve always thought was off

    You better throw some cushcore in the back if you are running that low or get a wheel trueing stand.

    really? I didn't think low 20s was that low. I've always ran 28-30 before going to NC with the guys and they were all sub 25

    I run 22 in the rear and 19-20 in the front, but I'm 40# lighter than @stronghammer
