Aaron Fowler aka Chickenman at R&R Sport.
He was the former Worrals Rock Shox service guy, has gone to SRAM University and he enjoys a thorough rodgering with a Reba World Cup steerer tube.


Oh and he surfs Vrob from time to time.

yeah go see aaron (RnR sport on K road in aucks)

he might advise looking up rick at highspeed cycles in taupari about 1.5hrs south of auckland... he did when my rear shock blew up and what a mint job rick made still goes a year after 3 places told me it would never go again....

rick can be contacted at krankin.co.nz

hope it works out for the best broken forks sux ova summer

R&R (Aaron or Alan). If Aaron (who also wrenched for SRAM at the worlds) is away wrenching for nats, Alan can sort you out too.
