Hi all
What is best way to maintain fork and shock? I currently wipe the stanchion then put a few drip of oil and compress the suspension/ shock then wipe again. Any advice?


  • Make sure it's an oil which won't rot the seals, fork oil is best.
    I give my forks a lower lube every fee months and send them away once a year.
    Depending on the shock a quick air can service every few months is a good idea and a pro service once a year. Coil shocks just need a full service once a year. My Cane Creek shock can't be DIY serviced.
