Keep Your Bike Running Smooth

Full Cycle’s service department strives to provide the highest tier of service possible, from suspension teardowns to wheel building. We are committed to a four-day turnaround this summer, so appointments will not be necessary: simply stop by the shop to speak with a service writer or talk to a mechanic by calling us!

Suspension Service

Full Cycle is able to perform any level of service on any Fox, RockShox, or DVO product manufactured since 2016 as well as most dropper posts, with a handful of exceptions.  However, Full Cycle can submit any of these exceptions to the manufacturer for factory service. Please visit or call our store for pricing and turnaround.

Bicycles are often fully designed around a suspension platform so to ensure your bike rides as well as possible, your suspension should be regularly serviced. Buildup of grime drastically increases friction and introduces dirt into what has to be a pristine system for proper function, as the smallest of scratches can allow air molecules to sneak past seals. See our recommended maintenance to see what service your suspension requires.
