Fork service
« on: September 18, 2013, 09:18:59 AM »
Hello - Anyone had a front fork (in my case, Reba Dual Air 29er) serviced locally? Were you pleased with the results? I know I can send it off to several different places (Push Industries, etc), but I figured I'd give an LBS first crack if any of the shops around here know what they are doing when it comes to forks. My fork still works; it just needs some serious TLC. Thanks

The guys over at chain wheel drive know their way around a bike and i had some long discussions about my fotks with them. They also helped set mine up. Although after a youtube video and a little time i can rebuild my own forks. Its surprisingly easy. I rebuild cars and motorcycles so its not a foreign concept. If you have the tools give it a shot its alot of fun and really makes you understand the forks/components. If you dont have the toolsgo visit a harbor freight :)
