In 2019, we introduced Factory Suspension Services; comprehensive overhaul of your suspension fork and/or rear shock; complete teardown, inspection, cleaning, lubrication, assembly, static suspension set-up. Our Service Manager, Ian Hegedus, manages these services himself in our Soquel Ave. location. Please visit or call to make an appointment to optimize your suspension.
