Hi
Bit of a newbie question I'm afraid but I've just bought a Winchcombe with air suspension before lockdown.  I'm not sure what type and what pressure I should run it at. Just checked the shraeder valves and had no pressure at all so I know it should be more than that! Looking thro the forums seem to recommend 2.5 bar but not sure if that's for this type or not. I've attached a photo to see if anyone 
Many thanks
Phil

Photo not working for me, but 2-2.5 bar seems to be optimum regardless of what system, you will have to experiment, too low & it will 'wallow' on bends & be affected by big wagons if they pass, too high & your fillings will drop out along with cupboard doors etc. hugegrins

The ones on my Warwick Duo have a MINIMUM pressure of 1 Bar and a max of 3 Bar. We generally use 1.5Bar as a compromise between stability and harshness
