Does all the air escape? or is it a brief PSSSSST (that sound when the air escapes), then it stops.ricer said:I am trying to put air in my new SID. I pump the chamber up to the appropriate psi, and start to unscrew the pump head from the valve and all of the air escapes...what am I doing wrong?
In theory, a shock pump should dissengage the schraeder valve before the seal is broken between the pump and the shock - this is one of the special features which make shock pumps more expensive than regular pumps.hallin222 said:I'm having the same issues trying to add pressure to my wife's rear shock. It's like I can't unscrew the pump fast enough before most of the pressure escapes. Shouldn't it hold the pressure in the shock while uncrewing the pump?
Advice? It's a brand new shock on a brand new bike.
