I have a set of Fox vanilla R's that are showing the dreaded stanchion wear, for the £200 it'll cost to get new uppers i might as well save up a bit more and buy some new forks. Pikes are my first choice, but im also after longevity and theres been alot thrown around these forums about lowers service every 15-20 hours, which for me, can easily be once a week but maybe this is jsut me being lazy? of course marzocchis would have been the obvious choice now, but their reliability of late means they get a big thumbs down. Am i just gonna have to pull my finger out and strip the lowers off regularly to help avoid wear?? tell me your experiences.
