    N W Valley LBS for suspension work?

    I need to service my Marzch fork (change the oil) and my bro in law needs to change out the spings in his FOX fork and rear coil over. Any recommendations for a good shop?

    SWB at 83rd and Bell might be able to help you out. My best luck with suspension work was at Cactus off of Elliot RD.

    Yea I havent had any real good luck with LBS' this side of town either. All the good trails and shops are on the east side.

    So chipolopolo you're sending a shock to Push to have them swap a coil?

    I can see a full rear shock rebuild, but swapping a coil is easy and takes less than 10 minutes.

    Zoke rebuild I would say Cactus in Tukee, Fish is the Zoke master for rebuilds and repairs but honestly if its just a simple oil change, anyone with some 7wt, a crescent wrench, half a brain and a 6 pack should be able to do it.

    Local, I stick with Cactus in Awatukee. They have the most experience IMO.

    Another option is Drakethomas of Independent Suspension Operations. Got my Rocco rebuilt. He paid for my shipping and had a one week turn around. You can reach him at: isotuned@yahoo.com

    Your correct, I DO NOT fix bikes, I break them. Me working on bikes is like chewing on a piece of bad meat, the longer you chew on it the bigger it gets.

    When I get out the tools its a complete emergency. I do not care how the stuff works.
