    I have a K2 bike and am looking to replace the fork with a new one that can support my weight. I weigh 330 lbs., and it seems to lose all the air pressure as I use it on a short ride. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    You don’t give the age of the bike, but a relatively new shock should not lose pressure that quickly. Possibly, the valve (where you put in more air) leaks cuz the valve stem’s gotten loose.
    You could get a valve stem remover (from, sorry, an auto parts store) and try removing and replacing the valve stem, making sure it goes back in tight. Otherwise, take that bike back to the dealer.
