After one and a half year of claiming the HP2 Enduro stock suspension was good enough, I was curious after all the positive stories I heard about various suspension upgrades.
I decided to do it right the first time so I went to a Hyperpro service centre (Alphen aan den Rijn, owner is Bas) for advice. After bouncing the bike up and down a dozen times he claimed the front was to week, wobbly and without control. Of course I knew that since I know these things (really).
The rear was sort of OK but not too good. Poor rebound, poor compression. Advice: have the lot replaced. 3 weeks later I was riding a hand build (I was there, it's really hand build) specifically for my weight, my height, my luggae when I travel. Front with progressive springs and 2 new shim stacks, the rear fully adjustable and a hydraulic preload adjuster.
The result: awsome! I have a new bike, like it should have been!

Where are we heading?
Well, after being live a few days there I feel overwhelmed with all the feedback, people signing in and already a lot of contributions. The library is filling up, there are already tons of outstanding images and the first few forum posts are getting there. I hope we can grow to a thriving, 3000 member HP2E community. That would be something!
Some stats: 40+ 60+ registered members 50+ 70+ brochures, manuals, etc 100+ 250+ pictures and movies
All in just 2 weeks! Great, I've already secured the maintenance manual for my own personal use
