It is the reactiv version from a 2018 trek remedy (not a thrushaft though). Can someone confirm that I need a special adaptor to repressurise it? Also what psi?

Or does it require something more complex? Hopefully I can find a local shop who can service it/laugh at me

I thought it was to do with getting the last of the air out of the negative chamber and that it would come right after pumping the shock back up in stages and equalizing by pushing it into its travel a bit, but I've done that and it sounds and feels like shit so I figured I've done something wrong......thanks!


200-300psi.

However with Reaktiv you can't guarantee it was good before you let the pressure out.

What are people using to strap tools to their bikes?
I'm keen to stay bagless for longer rides.
I see the Backcountry research straps are pretty popular but was thinking of something cheaper.
Trying to stay away from velcro as that doesn't like dirty conditions all too much.

What's out there?
