We provide bike suspension service on your fork and/or rear shock. We can handle input as basic as ‘I don’t like this fork’ all the way up to detailed course-specific descriptions of rider-perceived rear shock behavior and turn it into a workable service plan. Every plan will be clearly spelled out before we begin, with specific delivered outcomes for your TrailWerks service.

All services include the best fluids and lubes available anywhere.

We provide same-day turnaround via UPS on most services. Some conditions dictate that we hold a unit for 24 hours to ensure that it is holding air. We provide UPS labels via email to make getting your product to us that much easier. If we don’t have the parts in stock, we will notify you of the lead time so you can delay shipping your product to us in order to minimize downtime.

We regularly provide while-you-wait service in our Maryland facility. We have free wifi in our lounge along with drinks, snacks and rental bikes. We have singletrack at Bacon Ridge just 2 miles out our front door if you want to get in a ride while you wait!

What Our Customers Are Saying


…Stopped in for a blown free hub repair and Mike spent loads of time gaming out and rationalizing the right setup for my preferred type of riding, current + anticipated skill level, and budget. I would have made the wrong choices self diagnosing the right setup based on bottomless internet opinion. Mike’s knowledge, skill, and passion for the sport led me to the right place – trust him. The bike is now an animal! Traction, grip, control, confidence off 3ft+ drops is no problem! TrailWerks is magic.


Great friendly service and quality work. My rockshox SID was shot and they turned it around in one day back to new and shipped it back in no time. I will most certainly use them again. A new age bike shop to replace old age bike shops!
