    Can the travel on Rock Shox RCT3 forks be reduced by fitting all-travel spacers?

    As far as I am aware none of the current rock shox forks can have their travel internally adjusted without buying a new air spring (Β£75 apparently).

    Need to replace the air spring assm. that’ll be about Β£45 for parts, have them on order fro when they arrive in the UK.

    do you know what size kits will be available?

    like a 120mm as speced on several full bikes

    Depends on wheelsize of forks you want it to fit. 29ers yes 120mm is available, should be able to ‘adjust’ other ones too if necessary πŸ˜‰

    oh nice.

    good to know…

    1 fork chassis with 2 kits = swap between bikes as necessary..

    Thanks Loco/Shackleton

    Loco can you confirm the A to C on these forks, I have it on good advice the 150s are 528-530mm?

    Cheers

    A to C s as follows:

    26″

    150mm = 532
    160mm = 542

    27.5″ (27″ πŸ˜‰ )

    150mm = 542
    160mm = 552

    29″

    150 = 561
    160 = 571

    So is there likely to be a 140mm option for 26″ wheels please?

    LoCo
    Member

    Yes, just fit a 140mm air spring assm. (Β£45 ish) when they arrive in the UK πŸ˜€ (got them on order πŸ˜‰ )

    Brilliant, thanks. I reckon my hardtail might be marginal with 150mm, so it’s good to know that they’ll be lowerable.

    Any early feedback on reliability anyone. There was a Bikeradar piece that muttered darkly about some reports of problems from other people, but didn’t get any more specific than that.

    Only heard of one ‘breaking’ but no real details to back this up, mine are fine, and all the local guys that have them and ride big stuff fast haven’t had any problems and like them. πŸ˜€

    If I usually just run my forks fully open and don’t bother with rct3 adjustments, is there any other reason not to just get a rc version? Thanks

    A bit OT but do you know if the rct3 29 is available in 160 with 51mm offset?
    I’ve seen 51mm off set 140/150 and i’ve seen 160mm but not seen a version that has both.

    LoCo

    46 or 51mm offset on 140, 150 or 160 29er ones. But the 160 51mm are not listed on Fishers site, data from another Rockshox Document.

    Update, the solo air assemblies are due middle of January next year. and are Β£34.99 but mail for prices πŸ˜‰

    Any idea where I can get a 29er 160 51mm offset then?

    Drop me a mail to remind me and I’ll check with fishers tomorrow

    Loco- my LBS say that they can reduce down the 150mm 26inch pike to 140mm after asking fisher about it? Does that sound like its achievable?

    So 140mm solo air assembly can be fitted to the 26″ Pike Solo?

    I’d say so but check if they have the sales chasis in the RS parts catalogue. It’s quite useful.

    140mm 26″ air assemblies not available, however we have converted solo air 26″ Pikes to 140mm travel by machining the air assembly.

    Sorry that was meant to be same chassis.

    All the air springs are listed too. However availability of the air-springs is a bit of an issue (if it exists that is!)

    The air spring assms. will be a month or two I think until they are available in the uk.. The 140mm 26″ aren’t listed so don’t exist

    I see!

    I’m planning a South Wales trip soon, might drop some forks off with you.
    Out of interest, could they be dropped to 130mm?

    Premier Icon kelvin

    Okay… will email you next month to arrange it. Thanks!

    Oh, what to you reckon the axle to crown measurement will be at 130mm travel? ta.

    Are the 26″ 140mm ASA available for the Pike RCT3 Solo yet?

    Read the bloody post he clearly said a 140 26″ isn’t avaliable but he can machine a 150 down to 140.

    The 140mm 26″ aren’t listed so don’t exist

    Looking for a bit of info on this :

    Got a Pike RC 160mm Solo air coming on my new kona process (stock fork)

    Looking to buy a Pike RCT3 to put on it and put the solo air on my hardtail. Is it possible to reduce a the solo air fork from 160mm to 140mm?

    They’re both 650b models.

    Thanks for the help!
