    Are There Any Easy to Pump High Pressure Pumps?

    I wasn't sure whether to ask this here or in the Clydesdale forum, but here goes... I'm a big guy at 265 lbs. My 2008 Stumpjumper needs a pressure in the shock even higher than my body weight in psi, so I need to pump past 265psi. This hasn't been a problem until recently. I hurt my shoulder a few months ago and can't seem to find a good position to pump that shock to the pressure I need. I'm using a Sette shock pump from Price Point with 400 psi gauge (don't know what it's actually rated to) that has the two-stage vavle. Is there a pump that can hit 300 psi easier? Or some kind of a pre-charged system with a regulator? On my previous bike (K2 Lithium) I could put about half my bodyweight in psi in the shock. I think it was a high volume shock. Could I replace the SJ shock with something like that? I would rather not switch to a coil.

    Most shock hand pumps appear to have the same volume / style (LVHP). How often do you need to adjust your pressure ?

    4000psi? How much do you weigh? Jeeez!
    The bike is nothing more then circles turning circles, It's the human motor that makes it elegant.

    I was hoping to see someone talk about one with a very low volume or some kind of multi-stage pump system, like they use for pre-charged pneumatic airguns (those can hit almost 4000 psi, but they look like a bicycle pump!). I haven't had to adjust the pressure a lot, but I like to check it once in a while and usually lose enough to need to pump it back up.

    Just an example of the capabilities of another technology. Or maybe a 500:1 suspension system?
