Time to give the big rig a bit of TLC

Mountain Biking UK - - LONG-TERM RIDES -

A sum­mer of dry, dusty con­di­tions has left the Fox fork and shock on my down­hill bike feel­ing de­cid­edly sticky, so it’s time to pull them apart, clean out the grime and re­fresh the oil. This year is my first on a Fox 40 and, while I’ve been im­pressed with the per­for­mance, I’ve found that I need to keep on top of main­te­nance a lot more than with my pre­vi­ous Rock­Shox BoXXer (the new ‘Charger 2’-damped ver­sion of that fork feels in­cred­i­ble, by the way!) to re­tain that bump-eat­ing sup­ple­ness. Hope­fully this good weather holds out and we’ve still got a few more dusty down­hill days ahead of us! www.canyon.com
