Opinion: You Should Be Fixing Your Own Bike
Definitely Satisfying being able to work on your own bike. Get a couple good beers, the tunes going and wrench away. Also after the initial investment of tools it’s alot cheaper. Just replace all my pivot bearings, new bb, rebuilt my dropper, bled brakes, fresh tires. 2 season old bike feels brand new again. And only cost me $220 all in. Mean while my buddy just paid a lbs $500 and a week and a half with no bike to just do pivot bearings and rear brake bleed.

Opinion: When It Comes To Suspension, Don't Forget The Basics
@mikedk: No I haven’t done a damper yet. But that will be the next step in my suspension service learning experience. I genuinely enjoy working on and tinkering with my bike(s) so part of that will be eventually being able to service and completely rebuild my own suspension.

Video: Danny McAtee Hits Brage Vestavik's 47-Foot Rampage Drop
@BoobyHill: The other part of the argument being that while obviously there are no rules about it. The honourable thing to do would be to allow the rider (In this case Brage), who was injured on their attempt and lives on the other side of the world the opportunity to stomp what he built. Or atleast get in contact with him. I’m sure there are plenty of other mesa’s that size to chuck off of if that’s it.

@isaacgibson: you tell’em gibbles. Also imo using the diagonal measurement doesn’t really say a whole lot about how gnarly a drop really is. A 55’ diagonal feature could also be a 54’ gap with a 10’ drop. Still a big hit. But nowhere near as wild or hard of a landing as a 47’ vertical drop.

Opinion: When It Comes To Suspension, Don't Forget The Basics
@schili: Exactly. I will say too. People, if you’re apprehensive about working on your $1000+ suspension. Take the money you’d pay for the service into investing into the proper tools. Having the specific tools to do the job, A: makes things 100x faster and most importantly B: significantly decreases the chances of messing something up. It cost me about $300 to buy all the tools for my 36 including new seals and oil. But now the next time it’s needed all it will cost me is $30-50 for the seals and the 1-2 beers.

Opinion: When It Comes To Suspension, Don't Forget The Basics
Having just purchased the tools to service my fox forks this past season I can confirm it’s an easy 1 beer job. That being said one biggest reasons for lack of regular service aside from people being uneasy about doing it themselves. Is the serious lack of manufacture service centers and LBS’s willing/capable of doing a full dampner service. I live in Vancouver, and given how big of a presence mtbing is here; insert cliché “mecca” of mtb term. The lack of manufacturer service centres is pretty pathetic. Fox only recently opened a service centre in Burnaby, which is awesome. But if you own rockshox? You have to drive to Squamish.. other than that there’s suspensionworx in west van. I couldn’t imagine living in a smaller town, or somewhere biking isn’t as popular. I would also be willing to bet that most riders don’t want to ship their parts out for a rebuild which likely takes weeks unless something is seriously wrong with their suspension. Further diminishing the likelihood people will do it for preventative maintenance.
