Rock Shox reba sL
« on: June 12, 2009, 03:27:59 PM »
If you bought a new bike with these new shocks would they come with any accessories
such as a air pump with guages. Come to think of it the only think I got was a bag with
coupons and spare clips for my pedals in the box where my pedals came in. No warranty information . What should I have gotten with this bike?

I'd think it would considering the cost of the bike...but then again many manufacturers are cheaping out these days.

From what I saw shopping around for my bike most bikes with air shocks came with the pump but I wouldn't say that it's guaranteed by any means. I got a pump with my Gary Fisher but depending on what you bought and from who it may vary.
You should probably also get a little plastic wedge to stick in the disk brake caliper to keep the piston from overextending if you accidentally bump the brake lever with the wheel out.

Typically only a full boinger will come with the pump, but not a hardtail.
 
There should have been documentation/warranty card, and a travel spacer included though with the Reba.

Really?? what shop offers air pumps when you buy a bike? I've bought many bikes with air shox, dual air shox and you're telling me i've gotten ripped off everytime??? Damn!

To get mine i had to buy a new factory fork.

depends on the LBS. last new bike I got, I wanted to build it so I got it in the shipping box with all the goodies. If the bike is built when you bought it, some of the accessories may not have gone with it. You should have gotten a warranty card if you're the original owner. I haven't seen a bike that comes with a shock pump, some LBS's might throw one in on the deal (among other accessories) if you talked to them about it though.

I know that all the full boingers ttat I was shown by stores carrying Trek brands came with pumps. Pretty sure the bikes UBC showed me had them as well but I wouldn't swear to it.

Every Giant except the yukon comes with a nice shock pump  ???
