> I posted a couple of months ago about options for rebuilding or replacing my rear
> suspension. I had previously thought that the stock suspension couldn't be rebuilt.
> The general consensus seemed to support my thinking.
> I went to Lonestar Triumph here in Austin, to inquire about my replacement
> options (really expensive) when one of the mechanics gave me the number of a guy
> who rebuilds suspensions locally.
> I called, and after some research decided it is possible to rebuild a TBS rear.
> I now have a rear shock rebuilt with race tech parts and a new spring that fits my
> weight. The TBS has never performed this well. I can't believe the difference.
> All together I spent $460. That was taking the shock off and installing it myself. Not
> exactly what I call cheap... but better than what it would have cost to replace it.
> The next time the shock needs service, it should only be around $150 since all of
> the hard work has been done.
> I'm riding out to Big Bend this weekend to ride river road and go to the Terlingua
> chili cookoff. It ought to be a great weekend to try out the new suspension.
