If you’re anywhere near Charlotte NC and going to do the install yourself I’d be happy to assist. I’d like to see how it goes together and see first-hand how it functions. I REALLY want to do it,
I’m just afraid that the “smarter” play for me is probably the Fox Shox and Cartridge play. Would love to prove myself wrong though.

I wish I was still in NC. I miss it so much. Cant wait to move back after I retire. I was looking at the same setup as you. Fox front and back. But also was looking at the legends aero-a air suspension. But at 1800 bucks. I can do front and back with the american kit.

No doubt, the American Suspension air setup is very cost effective for front and rear suspension. You definitely get a lot for your money. I canít wait to hear how it works out for you.

I think Iím going to play it conservative this time and start with Fox Shox in the rear, then gauge from there if I need to put the cartridges in the front after that. I think Iím going to save the air ride for my next one.

Had a buddy stop by my station yesterday. He had done the American Suspension air ride. Looked like a nice kit. I thought he said he added a second tank to get up faster. He also had a 23 fat tire, that looked sweet. Did some reading today on air ride and the American system is the one I'm leaning towards.

Very thorough kit and very easy to install. Fast up tank and compressor are hidden behind the bags and bolt through existing holes. All brackets are aluminum and super stout. Here are pics from install.
Which dual air pressure gauge did you go with? And, have you found consistent air pressure ranges you like for different riding (solo touring, solo aggressive, two-up)? Mark at American Suspension has been very helpful and responsive to my questions and Iím thinking very seriously about ordering the front and rear air setup, but Iíd definitely want a dual air gauge to find consistent/repeatable settings without guessing every time. Also thinking seriously about a Baddad Customs Fat tire kit.

Thanks for planting these ideas I canít get out of my head

I got my dual air gauge from Dirty Air. They had the digital gauge and rocker box mounting bracket. As far as pressures, I normally put 70 in the front and 100 in the rear when I'm riding. Don't have any 2-up pressures yet to give you and I don't really ride aggressive so I can't tell you that either.
