    Now. #26isdead or something like that, so the fork is old, therefore, service it.

    Especially if you travel with it, or fold it....
    Silly bike things happening.

    Every 50 hours is the factory recommendation. I've gone well over but you can feel the difference (in a good way) after a basic service.

    Well now, I just feel stupid. Guess some people have too much time on their hands.

    You service a 26" Pike Ultimate the same way you do a 27.5" and 29" Pike Ultimate, by first removing the wheel from the fork.

    And then when you are done, go ride the bike. EZPZ

    But make sure you have a 26" Pike Ultimate. Rock's Socks made 5 models of the fork and they all have different maintenance instructions and tools requirements.

    Pike
    Pike Ultimate
    Pike Ultimate Super
    Pike Ultimate Super Deluxe
    Pike Super Ultimate Deluxe Super Size
    Pike Mini
    ....and last but certainly least: Pike's Peak Edition.

    That last one requires special O2 air for the damper. You can get it on Amazon but since Covid-17, they've been in short supply since.

    Word of caution, what ever you do, DO NOT let the red oil out of lower stanchions or else you'll have to send in the for to Valanche Racer for repair. Just let the green oil out of the upper most left stanchions.
