    Roxshox SID Hydra-air and Fox Float R Leaking air?

    Hi. I own a trek fuel 98 that I recently purchased in need of a cheap full suspension bike. After a day of hard riding, I noticed the suspension was sagging through about half of its travel, due to lack of shock pressure. Why is this happening?

    They need rebuilding/servicing. If you don't know how to do it yourself, bring it to a good shop. Unfortunately depending on what needs service this can be fairly expensive especially on an older bike. If both the fork and the rear shock are sagging, I would bet they haven't been serviced in an extremely long time, if ever.

    Should I get them PUSH'd, or just get them serviced?

    oh also, dark colored grease is building around the seals. Should I be worried?
