    Blown in 1 week Manitou Radium RL Air

    Well I got a new 09 Scott Spark 60 with Manitou Radium RL Air Last Weekend

    The shock was working fine then started sounding strange

    I took it in to the shop to put more air in it i am 155LBS but it bottoms out over any small bump

    So less then a week old and first issue not happy, rest of the bike seams great

    Is this unusual or what?

    Any thoughts?

    Get a new bike all together and return it?

    Thanks

    bring it back where you bought it. either have them swap out the shock for one off of another spark 60, send it out for repairs (not best solution), or have them take $100 credit for it and upgrade to something else.

    either way, go back to the shop because it is a brand new bike.

    How much air you're putting in there, describe the "weird" sound, rebound setting...

    Most air shocks make some sort of weird noise, sucking or wheezing noise, to some degree. It's especially noticable when you're bouncing around on it in the parking lot, but you rarely notice it when on the trail due to all the other noise.
