Fox stanchion wear!!
I’m having a major problem with my fox forks with stanchion wear and was looking and getting them repaired got the normal quotes of over the 300 mark, but then stumbled across a company called pedalworx.
They quote on there website that they can repair the wear and service the forks to look and feel like new. Has anybody dealt with them or had the repair done??
If so what are the repairs like and what is normal time frame for them having the forks?Posted 3 years agocookeaaSubscriber
70 quid on a service they cannot provide a guarantee on.
Good luck with that.
Or looking at it another way £70 for a no-guarantees fix Vs ~£300 for a whole new CSU, which will have the same shonky wear prone finish anyway….
I’d either pay the £70 or simply DIY with araldite, and accept the slightly but bollox to throwing another £300 away with Fox… IMO.Posted 3 years agocrashtestmonkeyMember
For the cost of a service from the majors
Do regular lowers services yourself, its a doddle and doesnt take very long (loads of guides on the net).
And dont bother with Fox Float fluid on the foam wipers, even Fox have finally realised its pointless as it immediately gets diluted/flushed out by the oil bath.
Ride forks to destruction (probably much longer than you think).
Spend the £300 you didnt spend on new a CSU on new forks (my Revelations were less than £300 new and came with a free headset, and stanchions not made of cheese).
Even Loco has given this advice on similar threads and he puts food on the table by servicing/fixing forks.Posted 3 years agoLoCoMember
What do they do about the lower leg bushings? they’ll also be worn and have dirt ingrained into the bearing service 😕
Could send them to that other bloke that changes individual stantions by beating them out of the csu, with only minimal damge apparantly 😯
Lower leg service and run them till they die, then get some new forks or replace csu with kashima one at around £300 for either.
Pictures of damage would be good too as if really small, you can smooth off rough edges and fill with a little nail varnish to smooth, bad wear not any point in trying to sort really.Posted 3 years ago
Yea I sent pedalworx the pics of my stanchions and he has said that they are dead!! So think ill just have to service them myself ride them till they die as I really cannot afford new forks just yet!!
They have got very bad wear to them and it goes right around the stanchion only on the air side!!Posted 3 years ago
