Our suspension work is carried out in store so no hassle and hefty carriage charges of sending your units away. You have the confidence your units will not be lost during transit and our turn around times are very quick as we carry most service parts in stock.

The best way to book your suspension in for servicing is to give us a call on 02381 845996 to arrange a date convinient for you
and drop the unts in as soon as you can.  We do offer a postage service but we personally prefer for you to drop them in as we feel it is a much better service where we can get you suspension more suited for you. Also if you have the bike we can get pressures, sag measurements, etc more dialled in if the rider and bike is present. 


Once the job has been completed we will write out a form detailing and explaining everything with 
have done, including current set up for your weight and desired riding conditions and any further 
recommendations we have to keep your fork or shock running well. We will then give you a call to let you know everything is all done and ready to collect or be posted back to you.

All parts are extra any major problems or specialist parts needed will be discussed in detail and authorized with you before any further work is carried out.


Customer Reviews

local rider
in the last week-
I was highly recommended by a number of people to speak to a guy called Adam at DC and after taking my Fox ctd shock to him I now know why. Full strip down service, new seals and tuned for my bike. I wanted to give it a good test before writing this review. 4 months on and I can truly say the shock has felt better than it ever has done and it's still feeling great. Very skilled tech, no bs just gives you an honest straight to the point answer and gets the job done! Oh and this was done with a 1 day turn around. Cheers!!,1,,

Being a bit worried about sending forks through the post I decided to try a local (Hampshire) bike shop. Soo I have now taken 4 forks to DC Cycles for servicing,Fox ,Bos & RS.They Have all come back working better than they did out of the box. Genuine parts used & Adam really knows what he is talking about.

Anthony Hackett

Adam at DC cycles recently performed a full fork service on my RockShox Boxxers. Excellent customer service, all finished and ready to collect on time, and forks worked marvellously better after, which is what it is all for. I would recommend using them for any bike related services, repairs or upgrades!
