Suspension fork service

I just got a used Rock Shox SID on Ebay. Since it's used with an unknown history, I'm thinking of having it serviced; minimally with an oil change.

Does anyone know of a good place to do this? I saw that Sports Basement charges something like $60 plus parts.

I have rebuilt the old Manitou SX on my 2000 Gary Fisher and am in the process of rebuilding another ancient Manitou as a spare, but the modern Rock Shox SIDs look waaay more complicated.

I would say if you've not done a modern fork take it to a shop for the rebuild. I can see what Summit will charge for the service and let you know.

I also bought a used 2011/2012 SID on craigslist ($280, not bad). I got it serviced by Will, a guy I met at craigslist. You can drop it off with him in San Mateo, or go to his place in Pacifica to get it rebuilt and installed. He only charged $30 for rebuild, but I felt bad. Ended up paying him $40 for rebuild+install+minor tuning.


I'm so glad I did because I found out that my fork had no oil at the bottom (it's a dual-air shock). Highly recommend him. He used to work for FOX (before they shipped everything to China), and knows both rockshox and FOX very well.

I had my fork (Fox RLC) serviced at Tread in Campbell recently and was very pleased with the quality and price ($60)
