Mission Control Damper

Morning all

Anyone know if a Mission Control Damper can be fitted to a 32mm fork ?

I'm prob gonna change the Comp and rebound dampers in my Sektor, and I quite like the idea of having an adjustable high speed compression circuit as opposed to the factory set one you get in the RCT3 damper, however you only see the MC damper on Lyrik and above, suggesting that maybe the MC damper only fits wider stanchions...

I've emailed Loco for advice, but nothing yet, so thought I would ask

Cheers

    might be able to be fitted to your forks.

    definitely can't be fitted to your forks.


    Which do you mean?

    EDIT: Ok so Rockshox do a 'Mission Control Damper', whatever :P

    It already has MoCo, but on Poploc, which is a bit rubbish as i never use lockout

    Loco have confirmed that the new RCT3 damper will fit fine, but TBH i dont really want the three position platform you get with that damper (i fail to see the benefit of using the mid position and low speed comp adjust) and would prefer to be able to adjust both high and low speed compression

    if i cant, then i cant

    SRAM say no to Mission Control compression damper - too big

    Just checking whether Dual flow rebound damper can be used

    SRAM confirmed that Dual Flow rebound damper can be used, but only on solo air forks

    Effectively will have a solo air Revelation

    Not sure what they mean - the damping cartridge is totally seperate to the air cartridge.

    i think the point he was making was that there was little point in upgrading the rebound damper if i was going to have the most basic compression damper as well

    from SRAM - "The dual flow damper from the revelations is on the more expensive models, so to get your fork to perform in the same way you would also need an upgraded compression damper to see any effect."

    So not saying you cant do it, but suggesting for best performance, you change both

    Sorry, ignore my last reply

    if you have a coil fork, then they have a top out spring on the rebound damper which prevents you from using the dual flow

    i have solo air, so no top out spring
