Shock/Fork pump...

Got a general MTB question that doesn't fit anywhere else? Here's the place.

I was well upset when my œ1k+ bike didn't come with a suspension pump... Got a rockshox one which seems to work fine...

Do forks come with a pump or do you always have to buy them seperatly

Seconded! I have this pump and it is great. Fits in my bag nicely on rides and hardly looses any air from the forks when connecting and dis-connecting. It's also very durable as well, doesn't feel like it's going to snap or crack in a fall.

Really great pump.

Hmm, so do I need a seperate pump for the fork and shock, or can one such as the Topeak Pocket Shox DXG be used?

So the fork uses much lower pressure than the shock then yeah?


Another thing, do you even use the pump that much? Should I just borrow one of a mate? Or is it something just handy to have at home?

Do all manufacturers use the same fitting for shocks and forks, or do they differ?

Sorry for the newbie questions, Im new to air suspension!

(Pete, which pump were you referring to?)

Oops, quoted the wrong post! [xx(]

I have the Topeak Pocket shox DXG. I've never had a full suspension bike so can't comment on the way that it connects to the pump, but I assume it uses a Schrader vavle just like the front fork and requires higher presures.

I don't really expect to use my pump much so it might not be worth buying one as a lot of bike shops will have one that you can use (or your mate like you said). I could've done the same but I want to build up my toolbox with my own tools.

Possibly I suppose. With anything cheap you're going to be lacking in important areas like pressure gauge accuracy and valve release. I tried to find some reviews of that pump but sadly to no avail.
