Last week we covered how to do a quick post ride fork service [click here], now we will walk you through the process for a Lower-leg service of the RockShox Pike. During the process we will clean the inside of the fork fill it up with some new suspension fluid.
Despite regular maintenance after every tour, it is advisable to do a lager service of the fork after about 50 hours. Simply greasing the dust seals and replacing the oil will help extend the life of your fork. If this service is neglected, the performance of the fork deteriorates and it can cause damage to the fork stanchions and other components.
