Fork feeling dry and ropey? Well if you’ve ridden your fork for 50 hours without giving it any attention then chances are it needs a lower leg service. So follow Doddy’s tips to get your fork running buttery smooth again with just some fork oil and basic tools!

Now, we’re using a RockShox Pike here. It’s a pretty common fork. A lot of people run this. But the principle is the same for all forks. It’s only the oil variety and the volume that changes. RockShox recommend you do this service approximately every 50 hours of riding, and that’s pretty much the same for most manufacturers.
