    Sacramento Area - Fox Fork rebuild?

    Anyone know of shops in Sacramento that will do a full rebuild in house? I know there's some Rock Shox service centers near by...

    Would I be better off sending straight to FOX?

    Edit:

    Model: '15 Fox Float 36

    Just mail it to Fox. Its like one day shipping to Watsonville.

    Might check out the new to town Velofix mobile bike repair guys; they'll come to your house and rebuild it while you accomplish any number of things more productive than driving to and from the bike shop and/or boxing up and shipping stuff, all without the days/weeks of downtime

    I don't think the mobile services do anything more complicated than a basic tune-up.

    Nope! Not Velofix anyways. They're rollin around with a full shop inside a van. I know some brick and mortar shops in town offer mobile tune up services, but these guys are fully legit.

    $20 for a seal kit and youtube. It's not hard, at all. That way you never have to rely on anyone to get 'er done. And if you screw it up, then you can send it to Fox and pay $175.

    Auburn Bike Co or Full Flow. Forks are easy, I wouldn't ever send a fork back to fox for service. Fox publishes all their service manuals online and are pretty easy to follow if you want to do it yourself.

    Been going to Velofix and am totally satisfied. I was fortunate enough to have my go to mechanic to Jordon join Velofix last spring. He and I assume, they are perfectly capable of handling a fork rebuild, he just did my fork & shock rebuild a few months ago. It's a great business model and well worth looking into.

    On a side note and shameless plug. If your an Ibis owner, then look this guy up. He always has my HD3 running top notch.

    What is your definition of a rebuild? Seals and lower leg service? Any shop can handle that.

    If there's an issue with a damper or knocking, I always recommend going warranty route first and if out of warranty, send it to Fox. There were A LOT of 36's that were out of warranty with a noticeable knock that they handled as 'no cost' warranty services and never told us what the issue was.

    For things not listed on their web site. Make an appointment and the tech will call you to see what you need. They do everything from minor tune to complete shock and pivot rebuild. Jordan has fixed my bike numerous times. He is one of the best!
