Bike Suspension Repair and Service

Maintaining Your Suspension

Whether you ride hard, have had a few falls, or haven't serviced your bike in a while, it's important to make sure your suspension is working properly for a safe and efficient ride. We assist with all aspects of suspension including the fork, rear suspension, and dropper posts. We'll make sure you're getting the best ride out of any bike.

Fork Maintenance

Also known as front suspension, forks are important for taking forward impact. Over time or after crashes, the damping (rate at which the fork compresses and rebounds) will need maintenance, air pressure will need to be adjusted, and repairs to the fork components will need to be made. 

Rear Suspension

Rear suspension is found on full suspension mountain bikes and allows the rear wheel to take bigger impacts. Air pressure, coils, and travel can all take a beating and need adjustments over time. Whether you're riding hard, or just have an older bike, it's important to upkeep your rear suspension.

Dropper Posts

Dropper posts allow the rider to push the bike seat down for more control and pop it back up for climbs and long, flat rides. Over time, these springs can wear out and the cables can degrade, making dropper posts difficult or impossible to use. Adjustments and full overhauls can fix the problem.
