We now have rental forks for when yours is being serviced!

We just received three rental forks from Rock Shox, two 26" and one 29er. This is just one more step we've taken to make it convenient for you to bring your fork in for it's annual maintenance. These forks are available for rent when we are servicing yours or sending yours in for warranty. The rental fee is $40 for as long as your fork is in for service and installation is included.
