    Suspension mechanics/ service stations in Bay Area.

    Hello I am new. I own a 2013 airborne goblin, with a reba rl front. Can anyone recommend a good shop for suspension service in the bay area. My local LBS (brentwood, ca) told me I could go through him and then he would ship the shock off to a service center. I'd rather drop it off smaller yet reputable shop and have it done in house. I'd like to avoid Mikes Bikes is possible. Any suggestions? I live in the East Bay but would be willing drive. Thank you.

    you might give Chris a call over at Eden Bikes in Castro Valley. They may have to send it out as well, but it's worth a call.

    If you can't find anybody you can either send it to:
    Garage Work's In So. Cal. Their number is 760-966-1048.
    Or
    Hippie Tech I believe they are in Idaho their number is 208-724-8949.
    Both of them quoted me the same price which wasn't bad.
    This is most likely where your LBS would send it.
    Good Luck

    PaulCa916 thank you I will keep them in mind as well. I know I need to learn how to service my suspension, but for the time being it would be nice to have someone who knows what they're doing handle it. Thanks again.
