How much psi should my fork be?
Sag should be set to 15 – 20% of total fork travel To achieve the best performance from your FOX suspension, adjust the air pressure to attain your proper sag setting. Sag is the amount your suspension compresses under your weight and riding gear. Sag range should be set to 15–20% of total fork travel.
How often should I put air in my fork?
Yes get a pump. You should “check” the air pressure in your fork before every ride. However that doesn’t mean you need to attach a pump to it to do so. Simply check the sag (the amount the fork settles into it’s travel with you sitting on the bike) before each ride.
How much air should I put in my rockshox fork?
Max pressure should not exceed 163 psi. Rebound suggestions are set from the full clockwise/full slow position.
What pressure should my bike shocks be?
I’ve heard that as a general rule of thumb I should set the front shocks to 100% my body weight in terms of psi, and the rear shocks to 75% my weight (i.e. Front shocks at 110 psi and rear shocks at ~78 psi).
What pressure should my front shocks be?
How much air do I put in a front fork?
Start with the recommended air pressure for your weight. If that is not known, try 100psi. On this fork it said l should be running 75psi for my weight but there was always about 30mm unused travel.
What does adding air to fork do?
Think of it like tires: If your fork has a small air chamber, it’s like a road bike tire that needs higher pressure because it’s supporting all of your weight with a small volume of air. It also takes a lot more effort to compress it, so it’s much harder to bottom out. But a big chamber is like a mountain bike tire.
Do Forks lose air over time?
No, not normal. All the air forks I’ve ever fettled or owned have not needed topping up for several months. As above, they will lose a little bit of air each time you remove the pump though so what sort of difference in pressure are you talking about?
