Hi all,

I need a shock pump, and was thinking of getting a topeak dx ,is this a good pump or can you recommend another one for me.


also , I was going to let all the air out of my shock(ario 2.1) and then refill to set sag,so is it 1pound pressure to 1 pound my weight then add extra to set sag. I know i probably should ask this question elsewhere but whilst we are on the subject of shock pumps it would save time to get an answer.

    I've got a fox, a rock shox and a wrench force shock pump and they are all pretty much identical.

    I also googled the Magura one ans it looks exactly the same!.

    I think all shock pumps are made in the same place and just rebranded. So just buy one

    Topeak make good kit.
    You only need two tools: WD40 and Duck Tape.
    If it doesn't move and should, use the WD40.
    If it shouldn't move and does, use the tape.

    That Magura is double the price on noahsark. Is it really the same pump?

    Found this pump shoot-out if it's any help.

    The topeak DXG pump is good, you can get it from chain reaction cycles with free delivery!

    I've got a Topeak DXG and a pump that came with the bike (Giant)

    I always reach for the Topeak
