I gotta say, even without a custom tune the first time you get your year or two old suspension completely overhauled is when it will feel the best in its entire life. Better than the stuff that comes on new bikes. For one, forks habitually ship with desert dry dust wipers and o-rings, but it's more than that. Maybe something about the bushings being just a little worn in? All the slidy-bits slide a little better? Whatever it is, it's one of the biggest "upgrades" to any bike over like $1500 you can do. Adding a custom tune is just icing on the cake, even if you aren't shelling out for some fancy internals. PS - I'm a huge fan of the MSRP $99 Vittoria tires that came on my Optic. So much so that I've ordered a bunch more for other bikes when the rollers on them wear out. Not sure how they fair on the shore (we are 99% dry AF in the interior) but I'd give them a shot because the price is right.
