    Losing Air in Rear Shock

    I just purchased a brand new KHS full suspension bike about a wk ago. This past Monday I took it down to the shop to have them help me with the suspension setup. They aired up the rear shock, Rock Shox Bar 2.1, and it felt great, I just got back on the bike for the first time since and the shock has lost about 3/4 of its air. Is this normal? How fast should it lose air?

    How do you know it lost 3/4 of its air? Did it get softer, or did you attach a shock pump and see a lower pressure?
