Technical Tip (2): Teledraulic fork stanchion shifter

May 2010  Tip of the month

When re-assembling Teledraulic forks, pulling up the stanchions into the top crown can be made easier by using an old bicycle handlebar stem. If this is pushed down into the top of the stanchion and then the expander-bolt tightened, a cross-bar can be inserted in the handlebar fitting and the stanchion pulled up with hardly any effort at all.
