    Super V

    new to mtn biking here....currently riding a 2002 super v 500 w/headshock fork. it seems like i keep "bottoming out" when ever i hit a 3-4 foot drop or jump....can the headshock fork be adjusted to avoid this? secondly, how much travel is the super v w/ fox vanilla rear shock and headshock fork? sorry for the newbie ?'s. TIA!!!

    Rear travel should be 120 ish, and as for your fork, it should be air sprung, and you are most likely low on air. More ????? Don't hesitate to ask!
    This is a Pugs not some carbon wannabee pretzel wagon!!

    i dont think it is air sprung...there is absolutely nowhere to plub a pump into. it just has a hex nut on the top. does that make sense?

    It's on the bottom of the head tube directly above the tire. Remove the tire and flip the bike upside down you will see it.
