Ask the Experts: Specialist Servicing

Hi MBA, Who would you guys recommend as the best bike mechanic for Fox suspension in Sydney? My shocks I need a service and the brakes need bleeding too. I normally do most work myself as I can trust that it’s done properly, but I don’t have enough experience on Fox suspension to risk it.

It depends on how complex the work is. Most decent MTB oriented workshops can handle brake bleeding as well as a basic air-can service and seal replacement.

If you need the damper worked on with new oil and a nitrogen recharge, then the shock will need to go to a specialist service centre (see below).

Somewhat surprisingly, the Power Road TLE is the first tubeless road tyre ever released by the French rubber giant, Michelin. It’s a safe bet it won’t be their last, reports Peter Maniaty.
