- What’s your experience with remote poplocks on forks?
My Revelation Air U-Turn comes with a remote poplock, and as my type of riding is XC/Trail, I’m thinking it could be fairly useful for locking out on climbs/fire roads during out of the saddle efforts etc.
What are other people’s experiences with them?
Would also like to know if/how you covert a remote poplock fork to run with a standard lock-out?

i had some 07 sids (which were a bit flexi) but the remote poplock business was brilliant, really usefull.
would love one on my foxs…
not sure if conversion from remote is necessary? its only a rotating top cap which a brake cable attaches to and then ratchets round when the cable tightens, bet you could do it with your fingers…..

They’re good, but the cable needs a bit of looking after- mine at least spends a lot of its time not working, and I can’t say I miss it too much.
It’s probably on one of those other threads AB’s found, but the top of the leg has a little cable stop on it- if yours doesn’t that might be an obstacle to fitting one.Posted 9 years agopinchesMember
had it on my sids and on menjas. on the sids i thought “this is cool” but, it kept getting stuck. My menjas also came with it and i never bothered using it, couldnt find anywhere for it on the bars comfortably and i can honestly say i dont notice the difference without itPosted 9 years ago
