    Pumps for shocks and forks

    I'm in the process of buying my first full-suspension MTB. The bike has a Manitou QR shock and a Rock Shox Duke XC fork. Will the pumps required to adjust the shock and forks be included with the bike? Can the same pump be used for the fork and the shock?

    No sir,try to search a bit before asking .
    Sometimes you get more satisfaction in figuring things out for yourself.
    Ok, off the soapbox...............

    Check the pressure ranges on your gear. Shock and fork pumps are generally the same pump with different scale markings 0-150 psi and 0-300 psi. I use the same pump for both.
    Also some forks (like Marzzochi) require special adapters.

    oops, just read the post. No, you don't typicaly get a pump with the bike.
    All those who believe in psycho kinesis raise my hand.

    The last two bikes I bought from Santa Cruz did come with a shock pump.

    My Haro did come with a shock pump. Although I had to ask for it.
