Almost all Mountain bikes, and many Hybrid bikes, are now coming with suspension systems to make the ride more controllable and comfortable. These are 'moving parts' and so need maintenance and servicing, some of the manufactures recommend fork services after every 8 hours of riding. To maintain your suspension at its optimum level Rule 4 Cycles offer a range of service options. Suspension should be serviced regularly, and you should not wait for the units to stop working / break down before having them 'serviced'; if it has gotten that bad the units are likely to be beyond repair and may need to be replaced.... at significant cost.

With the huge range of Forks and Rear shocks it is necessary to 'order in' the seal kits needed so please book your service in advance with full details of of Model and Year of the unit to minimise the time that your bike is 'off the road'.

PLEASE NOTE some 'basic' forks and rear shocks are not serviceable and it is not possible to get seals for some shocks and forks. If this is the case you will be advised and no charge made.

If there is any wear to the fork bushings, or pitting of the stanchions, this will require more specialist work and it is recommended that the units are sent to TF Tuned for assessment and repair. This can be arranged but will need advanced booking and involve the bike being off the road for some time.
