- I deserve to be hit with a big stick!!
just returned from a cracking snowy ride and as I lifted the bike out of the flatbed of the pick-up i notice around the back wheel / shock area the snow is red/brown I notice fluid leaking from the back of the shock (its a fox brain shock and its leaking heavily from the brain part) so i bounce the bike to see if its ok………..rate of return is almost nothing and its squelchng really bad
phoned Mojo for advice…….chances are the seals are fecked and they are now closed till 4th jan
two days before xmas and i break my bike!!!!!!!!! I now have two weeks off work with no bike to ride!!!
I'm crying as i write this.Posted 8 years ago
based in Hamilton in south lanarkshire, would consider taking it to a good LBS to be fixed if there were any around but as has been discussed previously Lanarkshire is void of any decent LBS that I know of.
only been back into mountain biking since jan and bought the sworks enduro 2nd hand to keep me going till i saved enough to go buy myself a 2nd bike (new) next summer. Hence currently only one bikePosted 8 years agoclubberMember
Ditto PP – the shock mounts (not just the bolts) aren't designed to cope with impacts from a rigid rod rather than a sprung shock. Even when locked out there's almost certainly some give in the shock to round out the impacts. I certainly wouldn't other than a 'get you home' fixPosted 8 years ago
