- Tell me about Loco tuning…
Fairly unique in that will happily offer advice and parts for the aspiring home shock/fork fettler. As such a refreshing and long sighted view from someone in that trade.
I have, to date, carried out my own shock servicing at home but I will be needing a proper strip and rebuild soon. Because of the above Si will be my first choice. Simples.Posted 4 years agothisisnotaspoonMember
He’s tuned & serviced a few of my shocks, sold me cheap spares and given me loads of free advice- bang on, tidy, isnt it.
It’s a business model based on drug dealing.
He suckers you in with some free advice over the phonePosted 4 years ago
Then there’s some cheep spares
Then a shock service
And before you know it you’re discussing custom shock tunes and titanium springs 🙁compositeSubscriber
I can confirm a top notch technical service. Both my shock and fork came back like they were new again. The shock in particular was like night and day.
Also helped me get a warranty replacement when my RTC3 controller disintegrated. Result!
They were very happy to chat on the phone about different options and to offer advice. Still waiting on an email though about the Rock Shox SID/Reba 29er options for the 2014 range. 😛Posted 4 years agoThrustyjustMember
Always answered emails. Had weird issues with my talas forks. Sent them to him. He said the damper was a know fault on them. He said he would take them to Mojo for a warranty replacement and charged for the service only, when he could have just said it was knackered and charged me for new bits. So a genuine helpful chap, who will get my forks when they do go wrong from now on.Posted 4 years agosmell_itMember
Given loco’s intervention on moonan’s thread, i guess this was no lower than that, and certainly less under hand (depending on your acceptance of loco’s explanation). But i don’t think anyone has ever had anything bad to say about loco’s work, i’d certainly use him to service my fork.Posted 4 years agobigjimSubscriber
I recommend Loco too – had my rear shock done there, and bought some forks through him, I don’t think he’d mind me saying there was a problem with the forks due to unavailability of new spare parts, but he actually offered me the forks off his own bike to tide me over until Fisher had the parts in, which is a pretty exceptional offer, I still had my own so didn’t take him up, but that shows some commitment to customer satisfaction.Posted 4 years agoretro83Member

What’s all this about? What was the intervention?Posted 4 years agothisisnotaspoonMember
He posted twice on the same thread, once under his work ID and once under an old pre LOCO one he’d apparently left logged on his PC or something like that.
The OP took umbrage to this as it looked like N+1 were saying what he didn’t want to hear where N was already quite a lot of people.Posted 4 years agosmell_itMember
My take wouldn’t be that of tinas, but as i have noted, i would happily send my forks to loco.Posted 4 years agokiwifizSubscriber
Forks are on their way back after a painfree and easy booking/payment process. Had to book a few weeks ahead but suited fine with a bit of planning and having sent forks Monday morning, they will be back in time for this weekends riding. Great friendly service with good communication throughout.
As an aside, I see Loco are listed in the premier dealers of issue 82, but are missing when checking the ST website list for deal/discount details……forgot to ask for any ST premier discount but looks like there isn’t one anyway? Update needed for mag or website? Have I missed something?Posted 4 years agoPJM1974Member
I’ve used Loco and would recommend him. He serviced the shock on my old Enduro, was very straight with me about shock body wear without attempting to sell me new kit. He’s also very helpful with general tuning tips and knows his stuff.
A lot of folk on here owe him a pint.Posted 4 years agomarsdenmanMember
Happy to confirm I’m not an ‘alter ego’ for Loco. 😉Posted 4 years ago
Happy to advise I would gladly use him again – last year I bought a pair of those silly price RS Rev’s from O-O.
Being mechanically inept and mindful of a few comments i’d read (i know… ) re: problems with a few pairs, I sent them off for a ‘quick once over’ and to have travel adjusted.
Very happy with service level and price.
