Got a pair of SIDS, maybe 18 months old, clean the stations EVERY ride, get a clean tooth brush around the top seals to clean any muck build up as well. They have worn the coating off ever so slightly at the front of the stations causing the forks to be very stiff and seize up. I do ride maybe3 or 4 times a week but why not just have stations like motorbikes, chrome and no fancy coating?
Asked a few bike shops. They all say I need new forks.
New stations are about £ 230 plus fittng.
Why does no one have a solution to re coat the sanctions, apart from the small wear the forks are in perfect order, crown, steerer, legs and lock out all good. £ 400 quidish for a new pair FFS!!
Am I missing somert???
