    Can I fill shox with a floor pump?

    I have a campione floor pump that goes up to 260psi, can i use this to fill my rear Fox shock? Asking because I ordered a Fox hand pump and they gave me one that max's out at 150psi, now I'd rather not go out and buy another pump since I have a good floor one.

    damn you fox............

    Probably not but you can try it. The volume is very high for a floor pump so it would be hard to get the air pressure right. I'd send your Fox pump back and get one that goes to 300 psi. Or you could just get a gauge that reads the pressure you're looking for and put it on your shock pump.
    Don't you hate it when a sentence doesn't end the way you think it octopus?

    Swing by your LBS on your way out to ride and ask if you can borrow theirs.

    The volume issue is going to be a problem as well as the fitting. They both use schrader valves, but usually on a shock, the fitting is in close quarters and it can be hard to get a floor pump on there. I'd swing by your local shop for now.

    Why not have a pump for both? I find I'm always messing around with the pressure in both the front and rear suspension. Even after a few weeks you will still need to top it off with a shock pump. Just my $.02
