    Air pressure

    Sorry if this seems newbish im finding it hard to find info. I have a 2005 manitou Nixon fork It says air pressure 65 to 85% body weight. now for me that would be about 220psi. Do i really want to put 220psi into this fork? or is there a max?

    An IT fork? Assume you weigh close to 260lbs?

    220 lbs of air should be fine but make sure you have the fork serviced professionally. The o-rings and internal seals on a 2005 fork may not be in the best shape.

    Use sag as your starting point, not the manufacturer's recommended air pressure.
