    Question VIC - Bike/Suspension servicing reviews

    Hey guys,

    Just wondering where you get your bike serviced in VIC (if you don't do it yourself) and your thoughts on the place?
    If you have any other reviews for places you have been in the past, that would be great.

    More specifically , I'm looking to get my forks and rear shock serviced. I believe that Tekin no longer exists and hasn't been sold or rebranded? Can anyone confirm this?
    I've seen numerous recommendations for NSD but would like to explore some local options if possible.

    Thanks!

    Last owner of Tekin was Bradley James Lawlor.

    He has since opened another business, http://www.trailtunesuspension.com/ based at Mt Macedon.

    I believe there have been some issues, the website is not responding so maybe it has been closed.

    Life of Bikes, Pakenham. A great independent shop that is not only mountain bike focused but the guys also ride and compete. They service forks and shocks, had mine done by them, and I think you will find that a few of them have been to Sram Technical University (STU).

    Thanks for the info guys! I've hit Paul up and will get my suspension serviced through him. He's also local so that's a bonus

    I can confirm that Trailtune is indeed closed and Bradley is out of the game.
