Reverb Rebuild - local

Folks,

Which is the best shop to get a reverb rebuilt locally (ideally in North Van) - price/turnaround time. Yesterday before I left for my ride (luckily), I noticed that it wouldn't hold air, could hear the air leaking as I tried to pump it up and a bit of oil around the shrader valve, so I'm guessing a blown seal or something.

Or should I head the route of Bicycle Hub or one of the local DIY places like Bicycle Room? I am pretty mechanically inclined, but suspension and the reverb kinda intimidates me.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Gord

Not North Vancouver but http://www.fluid-function.com in Squamish is the place to take it to. Bike shops should be able to send it to them for a rebuild.

Dave does 2 or 3 of them a week… at least. Knows them inside and out.

Check with Steed, They changed the seals on my Reverb….not sure if that qualifies as a total rebuild but if they can change seals etc, they should be able to rebuild it.

I had it back in 24 hours.

Thanks for all the feedback guys. I have sent a note to Dave at Bicycle Hub to see if he can help.

I may call Steed if I don't hear back today.

I just don't want to be stuck without the seatpost for weeks while it is sent out, hence the request for in-house rebuild.

Dave is the man. But he's also on vacation until next week so I wouldn't expect an immediate reply.

Ah, that's helpful. Ok thanks, I will be more patient.

Sorry to slightly change the topic of this thread, but does Dave at Bicycle Hub also do KS posts?

Lambert seems to have cornered the small parts market so I think Dave would like to service them but can't get the parts. He's sent mine back to them for service when I've needed it.

I had the exact same problem a couple months back, I heard Cove was doing in-house rebuilds but when I called they said they were sending to SRAM because it was faster (they must have been busy). I also checked with Dunbar (since I live close to them) and same story. Ended up warrantying it through the UK online retailer I bought it from and it was replaced with an entirely new retail unit with me only being out shipping and a 3.5 week wait.

Dunbar suspension tech broke his wrist, cracked elbow and dislocated his shoulder about 4 weeks ago. That's why it was being sent out but he's back wrenching now though. usually 24~48hr turn around
