    When measuring rear suspension sag are you measuring straight up from the axle or from a point along its arc?

    Touratech shows vertical but I’m coming across conflicting information from other sources.

    Straight up from about axle

    measure it on centre stand

    measure it with wheels on ground no rider - static sag

    measure with rider and gear on bike - rider/race sag
