Cannondale Ultra Headshock Question
I bought a used headshock for my gf last year and something seems wrong but I never owned a headshock so Iím not sure.
The shock was supposed to be freshly rebuilt by cannondale, and it seems to be: new boot no oil or air leaks over winter. Seems to be no slop or play or funky noises
Why I think something is wrong
1. when you completely deflate the shock it only takes about one pump with my shock pump to inflate to the recommended pressure.
2. When inflated to the recommended pressure or over it seems way to easy to compress
Any insight to this would be greatly appreciated
I have the Super Fatty Ultra DLR on my '09 F3 and it requires many more than one stroke to properly inflate the shock; I ride at 100psi+ (even though I only weigh 170).

I've never had this problem, but I recall someone else mentioning here recently that some shock pumps don't play nice with the headshok valve stems. Maybe you aren't getting any air through the valve and the pump is just reading the pressure within itself.
