Maybe the Right Reverend or one of the other "mechanics" around here can tell me. Got a Metro Mag on my Trek Hybrid and was reading the "instructions" and saw a service reccomendation for every 2 hours of riding WTH. Did I misunderstand? Not sure how many "hours" I have on the thing, but I have easily 1000 miles on it. Have I toasted it? Every 2 hours, EGADS why didn't the LBS tell me that when I was asking questions to make informed decision prior to purchasing. Been keeping the "seals" lubricated, and lifting the boots to keep the cylinders clean but geesh.
The service instructions seem so intimidating, am I better off just ditching the thing and getting a non-suspension fork, couldn't be that expensive compared to taking the dang thing in and having it serviced at that kind of interval and even though I have a second bike, I would sure miss the thing a lot if it had to spend that much time in the shop. This is certainly a case where I miss the old days when things were far less "advanced" so to speak.
