    Air Pressure for HI FI 29er

    Just bought a 2009 Hi Fi 29er XL. Where to start air pressure for a 225 lb rider in the fork and rear shock? Thanks

    2nd ride

    Just used it on my second ride with 90 in the fork and 105 psi in the rear shock and felt pretty good. Only got 3 inch of travel with the fork and 2 inch of travel on the shock with a couple bunny hops and one small jump.

    105 in the rear sounds really low for a rider your size...im only 165 pounds and i have around 170 in the fox rp2 shock

    My Pump

    It must be my pump. I have 110 psi in the rear with 11mm sag. 230 psi was like a hardtail with maybe 5 mm sag. How much air for the Fox fork? 90 psi for me gives 1" sag for the 4" fork. Same pump.

    cottonball, do you have the propedal turned off when checking sag on the rear shock?

    pro pedal

    Pro pedal, blue selector knob in on switched to to right? PP is off switch to left? Pretty sure I'm right. to lock out I switch to right. Does this shock have more settings than I think? I am thinking it is either on or off?

    off teh top of my head I forget which way the lever sits for on or off, but there's a definite feel change when it's on so you should be able to tell.

    I find my bikes don't sag nearly as much with the pp engaged

    don't be suprised when you dont get a full 4" travel out of the fork as advertised, maby 3.5" if you are lucky. that was frustrating to me when I was setting mine up!
