Got a quick Question.

I checked the manual and stuff for my Marzocchi Bomber MX Pro fork,

Either side is postive air, My question is, do I have to have the same PSI in either side, or can I get variable results by mixing and matching?


Sorry- still new to air suspension.

A few pounds difference shouldn't matter but I still believe you'll get the best results with equal pressures in both legs. It's what I would do.

A lot of forks only have an air spring in one leg...so you probably won't have any issues if yours are not equal...

lol
=)


although.....a new set of brakes, most likely Avid Juicies or something is in the future. I read the reviews and horror stores of the Soles. And after a good break in period, I still dont have much stopping power, I hopped on the trek the other day for fun in my driveway, and I almost got thrown off the saddle cause the BB7 has so much more power.

Yes, before making adjustments to your bike, ask, WWDD.
