Suspension Servicing

It’s a fact that if you don’t service stuff it wears out quicker. Considering the price of a decent fork these days, you’d have to be foolish to neglect it. Performing a regular, full service on your fork is the ideal scenario, but that’s probably not going to happen considering most people’s hectic lifestyles and limited budgets. Most decent forks use some kind of oil bath in the lower legs to lubricate seals and bushes and this can become dirty quite quickly in UK conditions. By replacing this oil and cleaning out any dirt you can help reduce wear and enhance the fork’s performance. This is where our In-house Fork Lowers Service comes in. We will service the lower legs and replace the dust seals and foam rings of your fork between full services. This focuses on the area of the fork which is often most prone to wear, saving you cash and time. Ignoring the manufacturer’s recommended service intervals might result in increased wear and may void your warranty.

Recommended fork service intervals:

In-House Fork lowers service
RockShox – 50 hours of riding
Fox – 40 hours of riding

Our In-House fork Lowers Service includes:

– Comprehensive pre-service test
– Cleaning of the unit

– Re-pressurisation of air forks
– A comprehensive post-service test

Cost – £50

If your fork needs a full service we can send them to the uk

Frame Bearing Replacement

All full-suspension bikes have pivots that allow the rear wheels to articulate. No matter how many pivots your bike has, it won’t work as it ought to if the bearings are not working as they should due to them being seized. Your rear suspension setup will not be working as well as it should be, so keeping on top of your rear end servicing as well as your rear shock servicing will keep your bike running like the day you bought it.

We only use genuine or Enduro MAX pivot bearings when we replace frame bearings, this is because pivot bearings are exposed to a vast range of dirt, water, sand and other abuses. Enduro MAX type bearings are designed to handle these extreme conditions, they have a 35-40% higher load capacity than the standard retainer type bearings most people sell. They are also packed on both sides with a high impact, water proof grease.

The result for you is a much more active and quick rear suspension. Upgrading your rear suspension with Enduro Bearings MAX bearings will save you time and money, as they will perform well for 2 or 3 times longer than the stock set up. If you are going to spend your hard earned cash on a bearing replacement, you want to use the best Enduro Bearings MAX bearings, period.

Prices for bearing changes are dependant on the type of frame, but start from approximately £40 including all hardware.
