    New question here. _____Do I need a Front/Rear Air Shock pump for my new mtb?

    My new moto mtb will have air shocks on front and rear, do I need to buy an Air Pump for keeping them pumped up? Is it dependent on how rough I ride the bike?

    You can buy one for decently cheap and set the air pressure yourself (they shouldn't leak air) or you can take it to a shop and have them set it up. I personally have one because depending on where I ride, I might change the settings.

    Not sure how much an LBS would charge but amazon has them for 30 and used 15-25 regularly.
    Convenience says have one yourself but why spend what you may not need?
