I could use some ideas here... I have a Cannondale V2000 full suspension mtn bike (@ 15 years old) which is in excellent condition except for the minor problem I found today. The rear air/oil shock has finally given up the ghost and has leaked fluid out and and I can't pump it up. Obviously a seal or two has failed. The shock is the "Fox Alps 5R Airshox". So my questions are three:
1) Does anyone know if if is possible to rebuild these? Which leads to Q2....
2). Is there someone or some company that does rebuild them? Which leads to Q3....
3. Does anyone happen to know if there is another shock that I can replace it with? I don't know enough about these shocks to know if there is a universal mounting design and all shocks will fit all bikes, or each shock will only work on one specific bike, etc.
Any help/direction anyone can give would be greatly appreciated.
(This was the first sunny day I have seen in I-don't-know-how-long and was I bummed to grab my bike and find it no worky )
P.S. I'm a nOOb here and did try the search function first!
