    shock on frame

    Hello All,
    I am not sure if this is the right forum for this ... I have a Giant Trance 2 which is a full suspension bike. I want to ride it to work which is 14.44 mi. one way. Question: Can I pump up my frame shock at High psi to make it more of a road bike? will I cause damage to it. Thanks Kardar2

    Just ride it as is. My rear shock on my fs has a lockout but it makes the ride more harsh than my road bike with skinny tires.

    If it was 14.45 miles to your job, it would be appropriate to use more pressure.

    Check the manual for your shock. It probably has a maximum rated pressure.

    Personally, I wouldn't do it until I'd established that the shock bobbed too much. I'd rather not have to switch my bikes back and forth between different "modes," at least not more than about twice a year.
