    K. B4 I look like a doink taking the FS into the shop ...

    I have 3 hardtails and expanded to a FS this past late Spring. 2008 Yukon FX.

    I've been riding it a lot lately and my hydrolic shock does NOT retain air.

    Gots the pump and even with pump still attached and pressure is applied to saddle - air leaks from under the shock. As a matter of fact, it all leaks out. wtf

    Not really happy.

    However, before I take the bike in - am I doing something wrong?

    Got some pointers I can go in with to the shop?

    Yeah, take it to the LBS, hopefully the one you purchased at- maybe warranty if the shock is DOA. Also, get them to show you how to air up/read pressure- if they know their ***** they will be an asset.
