Hi guys and girls,
I purchased a Orbea Radikal Flow full suspension mountain bike around 12 months ago but i have not been on in around 5 months (wrist slap).
Well basically i had 2 reasons why i didn't go on 1 was the gears needed adjusting and i didnt have time due to work and alot of the time kept forgetting, and 2 the rear shock lock-out stopped working this made it VERY difficult to ride up hills as all my energy was swallowed by the bouncy bouncy suspension, but now you will be glad to know i have taken it to a store to have the gears adjusted and have a service etc.
Ok so my rear shock is TOUGH SHOCK FDR and i was wondering if the lock-out can be fixed on this? and do any of you guys have any tips for this?
I would go through the Warranty process of ordering a new rear shock BUT Orbea being i think French i have to apply for a warranty replacement, confirm, send off old part to france, wait for other part, then fit....... around 2-3 weeks just on waiting so i would love to have a go at tinkering with it myself and if i break it even more i will have to buy a new part eventually when i save
