Hi,

I have a marin wolf ridge with a fox rp23 rear shock. I have had the bike for about 4 weeks and the rear shock is losing pressure. If i put 200 psi into it by the next day it will be down to about 70psi.

Any ideas as to whats wrong?

    I used it friday and pumped it up before i set out and when i got my bike out on saturday morning to clean it i say on it and it bottomed out. I bchecked the pressure and it was at about 70 psi.

    right then if it bottomed out then yes it sounds faulty.

    but first just check that the valve core is not lose.
