Thumb Thanks Alex!

Great to have a local suspension guy with a can-do attitude that knows what he's doing! I have an '06 Beta Rev-3 trials bike that uses Paioli suspension. The rear shock was leaking and in need of a makeover! My bike was dead-in-the-water without a shock. Apparently Paioli rebuild kits are on permanent back order and NONE of the trials-specific outfits I contacted in the USA could (or wanted to) help . Iain at Touratech USA suggested I call Alex at Konflict: "No problem send me your shock we'll fix it!" How refreshing to hear! I'd called several well-known suspension companies with no luck.

Alex couldn't find a new seal the proper dimensions but sourced a seal that was close and had the seal holder machined to fit the new (& more common) seal. New oil, re-charged and good-to-go!

Thanks heaps Alex!
