Help! Dh Rear Suspension.

Postby badestbuzz on Sun 3/Feb/13 11:15am

I haven't been on vorb in many many years and was looking for a help/bike tip kind of forum but couldn't find anything.

I have an old 05 DH comp that i haven't used in awhile, pulled it out of the shed and wham, my rear suspension compresses but then doesn't come back up. I'm quite useful fixing and maintaining bikes and just wanted some advice and or tips on what to do?
Its the stock shitty manitou shock it came with and i know these have been very unreliable in the past.

Any advice would be much appreciated. :)

Is it a air shock? I know mine needs pumping up every now and then ...

Assuming you have tried fiddling with the rebound adjuster it sounds like at least a rebuild is required.
