Suspension Service Pricing

The nature and cost of service depends on your specific suspension model, it's unique issues and prior maintenance schedule.  We are happy to provide an estimate but final prices can only be known once a component has been fully stripped for service.

Our suspension & seatpost pricing schedule is below.  If you're not sure what type of service you require we can make a recommendation after inspection of your parts.  Repair work is additional to a normal service.  We will always call and discuss before proceeding with any repair work.

These rates are for labour only.  Parts, oil & freight are additional and vary depending on the brand & model and the problems found.

Fork Tuning Pricing

When you buy a new bike the suspension is usually set up for the average mountain bike rider, a person who doesn't actually exist but who would weigh 60-70 kg, ride at speeds of around 15-25 km/h on trails of modest roughness.  If this doesn't sound like you then your suspension isn't running the best it can.

Currently we have tuning for Manitou forks with ABS+ & MC2, RockShox Pike, Lyrik & Boxxer Charger 1 & 2 dampers and Ohlins RXF.  Other models are to follow.  If you want to know more about what we can do to tune your suspension then contact us.
