Fixing up old bike to sell

Tristania's picture

By Tristania - Posted on 23 November 2013

After four months of hanging in my laundry/bike shed, it's just about time to kiss my old Giant Anthem X3 goodbye as I sell it to a friend. Among other things, it is in desperate need of having the rear (and possibly front) suspension replaced. Just wondering if any of you have replaced/fixed this type of suspension before, or know of anywhere where I may be able to get this fixed cheaply/for a less expensive price, as I'd like to find the most economic way of doing so. Got on it today and can hardly believe I ever rode this thing, it feels so small and slow!

I think the gears' bearings may need replacing too, does anyone know how difficult that may be to do?

Do you mean entire forks and rear triangle, or something smaller like shocks, bushings, pivot bearings, or just seals and fluids?

Assuming just a shock service, if its Fox you can buy the seal kits and DIY pretty easily. I've done it a couple of times myself by referring to the official Fox guide on YouTube.
