Easy MTB Fork Repair Suspension Fix for beginners to Mountain Biking
So, you are a beginner to mountain biking.
You have an entry level bike with an entry level front suspension that seems to be slow or spongy with its compression and rebound.
Here is a quick fix that will get your coil spring suspension fork working again in about 20 minutes.
First off, let’s talk about what is causing your fork to compress and rebound slow.
Your coil spring fork has an inner leg stanchion that slides in and out of the outer leg sliders.
The inner leg stanchion has a coil spring inside it and is usually well greased.
What happens is, over time, the grease leaks out of the stanchion and into the outer leg sliders.
The grease then makes its way into the thin gap between the stanchion and outer leg.
This causes friction and keeps the stanchion from sliding freely, thus causing slow and spongy compression and rebound.
To fix this, remove the two screws behind the dropouts.
This detaches the stanchion from the sliders and you should be able to pull them apart.
Once you pull them apart, use a clean dry cloth or rag to remove the grease from inside the sliders.
Next do the same with removing the grease on the outside of the stanchions.
Re-insert the stanchions into the sliders and replace the screws behind the dropouts.
Your fork won’t be like new, but it will regain the compression and rebound needed on the trails.
