When I'm lubing my bike after cleaning should I be giving the suspension pivot points a squirt of oil or are these fully sealed?

    Depends what full susser - they have different regimes. Should have a manual that tells you what is needed.

    does depend on the what the manufacturers expect and the type of pivot - would only add that after cleaning you need to make sure that even if the bearings are closed and you do not need to do anything to them that you make sure their is no water/dirt left in the moving parts or rust will soon set in
    Pain hurts much less if its topped off with beating your mates to top of a climb.
