Fork & Suspension servicing

Suspension Repairs and Servicing

Along side our bicycle workshop we run a bicycle suspension repair and service centre.

Our mechanics are cyclist and understand how a fork or shock should feel and be set up, they are experienced bicycle mechanics, well trained and fully qualified to at least Cytech Level 2 and hold at least one Manufacturers suspension training certificate.

We are a Fox Trained Maintenance and Service Centre.  We are able to service and maintain a wide range of Forks, Suspension units & Seat posts from most manufacturers such as Rock shox, Suntour and many more.

Through extensive investment in stock and tooling we are usually able to turn suspension servicing and repairs around within 24 hours of receiving the fork or suspension unit.  Some of the time its a same day service if a component is dropped off before 10am.

Where possible we would prefer it if you bring your bike, rather than just the fork or suspension unit when having suspension servicing or repairs carried out, this way we can set your fork / suspension unit up to you and your riding style when you collect it for no extra cost. if you are unable to leave your bike with us we will set the unit to the settings it was when we received the unit or failing that for any reason the manufactures settings.
