Veronique has been cruising about her local spots on her V10 after recently moving to Santa Cruz Bicycles. After a long time spent at home due to the pandemic, Vero has been stoked to hit the road in Europe again, first getting a quick warm-up in Morzine before trucking to Audi Nines. We caught up with Vero to see how she's set up her bike for this week.

 Right where the frame is blocking. Small knob, the only adjustment on the super deluxe apart from your spring.

 @ww27: no it has LSR and LSC. And internal HSC.

The basic Rockshox coil shocks only have LSR.
