    PA/SNJ/DE Shop for Suspension Service

    Hey there, sorry if this is wrong place for this, but looking for a shop in PA, So. NJ, DE - hour radius of Philly, that people have had suspension work done at (Fox specifically, full serivce kind of stuff), looking to get some stuff overhauled on my Yeti SB5.5 (if it happens to be a yeti dealer, even better). Don't have time or space to do it myself right now so looking for a shop where it is known they handle suspension work, suprisingly hard to find an answer on the layman's web.

    If you are just looking for basic maintenance then most decent bike shops should be able to do it no big deal, just pick any LBS you trust . I live too far away to make a recommendation for real. Closest shop to you I know is Cutters in Bethlehem.

    Keswick in Glenside did a full service job on my fork (a Pike). One of their Facebook posts about their in-house suspension service says that they'd send special stuff like "Fox Dyad, Brain Forks and shocks" out for factory service but that would seem to imply regular Fox stuff would be doable. Their website has contact info for service questions: Bike Repair and Tuneup Services | Keswick CycleKeswick Cycle | Philadelphia Bike Shop and Bike Repair

    Except Garrison's isn't near white clay. Henry's is. Henry's is a big mountain bike seller. I think thats the place.

    Garrison's in DE has done a lot of work for me. They definitely know their stuff. I live in NJ and it's always been worth the drive to me, to have them work on stuff I don't have the tools or knowledge to handle myself. With that said, Caffeinated Cyclist in NJ has done good suspension work for me in the past as well, on both Rockshox and Fox.

    Henry's is right next to White Clay. They do lots of stuff in the mtn bike community.

    Garrison's is west of Wilmington...near B-wine State Park. I agree with Sparky.

    Beans Bikes on Planebrook Road in Frazer (Right off Rt. 30 and easy to get to from 202) will do a Fox shock overhaul in house. He did my front and rear last year. Did it in a couple of days, great job and reasonable price. Sean is the OG - been in the bike business/wrenching a long time - and a good guy. here is the link Beans Bicycle Services - Beans Bicycle Services 484-318-8298
    Buy the ticket, take the ride. -HST

    Oh yeah. I forgot about Sean. Great guy. Knows his shit. Don't be alarmed by the lack of inventory there, he's not operating as a traditional bike shop.

    I live in Upper Bucks County close to Cutter's. One of the only shops I would ever use in the Lehigh Valley or the northern Buxmont area.
