Fork Work
« on: October 14, 2008, 12:40:57 AM »
It's been a while but I'm still alive. Between full time work and full time classes days off to ride have been few and far between  :-[
I finally got a day off to go riding last Saturday, loaded the bike up in the back of the jeep and headed off, I didn't make it 10 miles before a loud hissing sound started coming from the back. I stop and check it out only to find that my fork stanchion is covered in oil, does anyone know what's going on. I guess it'd be good to mention that it's a 2005 manitou black platinum. Oh and the bike was upside down if that makes a difference :(. I'll be taking it into the bike shop in the next few days if I can't figure out what's wrong with it.

Seals are probably shot...should be a quick fix assuming they have the parts.
