    Pressure for front and rear suspension

    Hi I'm new to the forum and been riding for the last few months. I recently bought a Trek Fuel EX8.

    My question is how do i know what is the correct pressure i need put in the front forks and my rear shock.

    I've been told it depends on your weight.

    Is there a chart that i can follow to get the correct pressure for my weight.

    Yup, it all depends on your weight, the type of riding, and your riding style.

    Look here for a chart for both the fork and rear shock on your bike. The chart will give you a place to start based on your weight, and then you can fine tune it from there.

    Do you have a shock pump? If not, you will either need to buy one or take your bike to a shop to make these adjustments.
