Bike going into storage

Stujr's picture

By Stujr - Posted on 21 October 2016

So I'm planning on putting my duel suspension bike into storage for a year. Is there anything I should be doing to it. I'm thinking I should take the tyres off the rims and getting it serviced. Is there anything else I should do like letting some air out of the shocks?

Oil the drive train

bleed the brakes

clean the fork and shock seals,

wash it, and dry thoroughly.

pack it away to pine for the trails.

I'd leave it upside down for an hour or so before you ride again to get some oil up to the felts and bushes in the top of the forks. Give it a normal pre-ride service and replenish any goop in the tyres then go ride.
