So I read today in the service manual that I should get this fork serviced every 100 hours of operationg . . . oops.

Question:
Where should I take my Reba Fork for routine maintenance?

thanks in advance,

Sam

take it off the bike and get a rigid fork that requires no service other than a quick rag wipe down after every ride.

Yes, the same goes for my anus.

However, if your fork needs service, you can send it in yourself to RockShox. In terms of LBS suggestions, I use the Slippery Pig. Any LBS should do.

Ladies and Gentlemen. You are about to witness a classic case of Arizona thread hijacking at it's best. Don't be alarmed. History has shown that these sometimes "thread hijacks" have been known to make a few laugh, some to hate and can last anywhere from one to seven days and can eventually repeat itself as fast as a Del taco breakfast buritto or when one is bored and decides to dig it back up a month or two later.

Aren't comments about other comments that are thread hijacks thread hijacks themselves? Read my first post. I answered the question.

Yes, but your first remark is technically a thread hijack, using your "logic".

Yes, you did and that was kind of you. The good thing is. No smilies have been used in this premature thread hijack. And yes, comments about other comments could be considered an attempt at thread hijacking but I look at my post as if I was the narrators voice coming in to give a synopsis of what is to come or has come or is about to happen.

So what good are you to the original poster? What does your running commentary about nothing have to do with anything?

Only after a good night ride and if the moon provides enough light. It's a pain-staking process

Question 1. Iam providing an insiders look into what is happening so the origional poster is not alarmed and those who lurk will make sence of it and keep from calling the ATF.

Question 2. Absolutly nothing. Anything is nothing if nothing is being said.

The rule is if the post is at least 50% on topic, it is not a thread hijack. My post was well over 50% on topic, and yes, I do need to wipe down my poop shute after every ride.

Here are my suggestions in Yetisurly's order of preference:

1. Order the rebuild kit and do it yourself

Here are my suggestions without Yetisurly's order of preference:

2. Send it yourself to RockShox
3. Slippery Pig
4. Landis
5. Rage

to never, ever sit on any of your bikes... ever... :nono: unless of course :)idea: ) you just bought a brand new saddle.

I've never serviced a Reba (many Fox and Zoke's though) but watching George over at the Pig change my most recent Reba from 80mm to 100mm made it seem pretty simple to do.

I thought they banned Olestra.

Man I need to get that rebuild kit. I think.
