I have a new 29er with a Rockshox Reba RL fork and I would like to upgrade the fork with a remote lockout conversion kit.
Heres a link to the fork....http://www.sram.com/rockshox/products/reba-rl
I'm more of a roadie and suspension systems are relatively new to me, but as far as I understand it, my fork is compatible with a RockShox Reba/Rev/Sektor/Pike Remote Upgrade Kit (see image)...
Am I understanding this correctly? SRAMs website doesn't really have anything helpful.
The second question concerns compatibility with a 29er. Is this conversion kit 26er or 29er specific or is it a "one size fits all" type of thing. The reason I am asking is becaue the cheapest I can find this conversion kit is at Bikeisland.com (http://bikeisland.com/cgi-bin/BKTK_S...ls&ProdID=1011
where they have it listed as being for 26", but no other website selling this conversion kit, nor SRAMs website mentions 26er or 29er compatibility. Will the one on the Bikeisland website work with my 29er?
Lastly, I am having trouble finding any decent instructions or videos on the internet showing the installation process. Before I commit to ordering one and attempting the conversion myself (rather than taking it to my LBS and paying an arm and a leg for it) will I need any special tools. I'm an experienced bike mechanic, and am more into doing this myself, but like I said above, suspension systems are new to me, and although I am certain I could do the conversion with proper instructions, I'm just not sure about the tools.
Thanks for the help!
