I wondering the same thing at 24K. No leaks. But lately I think I'm sensing a bit less dampening from the front wheel. I hope this summer will involve a number of mult-day trips so I'd like it to be in good condition.

I just had my forks done at 40,000 miles. There was no leaking; however, there was a noticeable decay in effectiveness. The bike rides like a new bike. In the future, I will most likely do the change at 30,000 intervals.

I noticed that my ability to stay true in turns was beginning to degrade and I could tell it was at the forks. This became subtly noticeable after 30,000 miles. Not enough to worry me, but enough that I started looking regularly for leaks. These are HEAVY bikes and a lot of force is placed on those forks. The $500 plus price to provide maintenance is ridiculous considering that the manufacture recommends this service every 15,000 miles.

I am hoping that progressive or Ohlin will come up with a fork cartridge that will eliminate the need to rebuild so often. Frank
