Now that I got my Noleen pull shock back from being rebuilt, I got a chance to look at the lockout mechanism, and it isn't a switch I can just reach down and flip. It's spring loaded, so it won't stay in the locked position without something pulling it taut. I don't have the remote for it, but I was wondering if anybody knows if an old school friction shifter would do the trick. The lever spring seems a tad tighter than a derailleur spring, but I know the friction can be tightened as well. What do you think?
Oh, and before anybody comes in and says "you don't need lockout", this bike will double as my commuter, and I'd love to be able to make it fully rigid for that.
