Blew up my shock

I noticed some sticky residue on my shock stanchions about three days ago.  I clean them after every ride and try to keep the seal area clean.  Well, the oily gunk showed up again after the next ride.

 

It appears that I have blown the seal on my front shock.   :mellow:

good thing you take care of your shop mechanics. Unless you damaged a stanchion, it should be no big deal.

My son has been riding the 1983 Cannondale.  He tends to be hard on bikes.  I have to replace the rear derailleur, rewrap the bars, recenter the brake levers on the bars and recable the brakes.  Luckily a buddy is going to give me a RD out of his parts box.
