Does anybody know anything about mountain bikes???

I've got a GT i-Drive and the back shock has started to leak, you can pump it up and it just goes down again eventually. Is there any way of rebuilding the internals on them? Pic below

Hi GB, yeah you should be able to re-seal them. It'll be a very simple lip seal but if special tools are required it might make it an expensive job. Generally, if the dirt has got in and ruined the anodising on the damper shaft you may not see much difference with a new seal anyway. Ergo, you will need a new shock. I have a GT XCR with an air shock very similar to that and I actually managed to melt the seal in it riding downhill. They replaced the shock under warranty but my point is these shocks don't take much punishment before they start to leak.
