    lots of q's...
    -you pull out the pro pedal knob and spin it to the setting you want. the switch flips it on or off
    -air pressure all depends on the rider's weight and the bike. put a zip tie around the shock shaft and the fork stanchion (shaft). air them up until they are not mushy and sit on the bike, not shifting weight or bouncing around. use a wall or tree to keep balance. you want to shoot for 25% sag (fork/shock travel or compression). add/remove air in order to achieve this. once you reach 25% sag, you'll need to ride the bike and play with pressures to determine where you like it.

    btw, nice bike
