I think that there are a few factors that come into play. How do you ride your SE?...mostly street?...Lotta' offroad? Do you clean your bottom tubes? Do you "breathe" the forks after you're done beatin' it offroad?

From what I have seen, there are guys who go through seals like underwear. But, many of their bikes are "rode hard and put-up wet".

I thought that "breathing" thing was snake oil. But, there are suspension gurus who really believe in it. If you ride really hard, try breathing your fork tubes and see if the flow slows...
