You can indeed somewhat affect the "firmness" feeling of an air fork by changing the air pressure inside it. However, this is not a primary mechanism for controlling compression damping, as it has side effects. Reducing air pressure will also increase static sag of your fork, meaning that you will end up with less usable travel. The fork will ...


Yes, you will need a shock pump. They have a screw on head that you don't get with a track pump. They also have a narrower barrel which allows you to deal with the high pressures often found in rear suspension. It's very likely at 45kg you will need to reduce the pressure in your fork. I find that even at 60kg it can be tricky to get suspension setup well ...


Thanks but I found a better solution. A plug with ample space for routing. I will fabricate a custom top cap to go with that.
