    Default Homemade Remote Lockout

    Hi guys,

    Thought you might have been interested in this remote lockout idea!

    It is using a Poploc remote lockout lever. Its on a 08 Giant Reign 1.
    The shock is a Rp2 (haven't looked into the rp23 yet to see if the same system would work)

    Its all made out off brass as it easy to work with because its just a proto type. But will soon be making it out of aluminum. It works like a treat.

    Here are some pics and a video,

    I was thinking i could make up the gear for people and supply the spring. You could send me your lockout lever so i can tap a thread into it. then post it all back to you for a small fee.

    If you were to remove the kit, there would be a small 3.17mm hole in the blue lockout lever on the shock.

    post your interest.

    Also if you have a different type of shock let me know and i will try and design something for you!

    At the moment i am working on a remote lockout lever for the front forks Fox Float 32.
    I also want some help on remote lockout levers that can take 2 cables, Eg. Front and Rear cables from the same remote? (pics and models would be good) Like the SCOTT TRAC LOC system. But i can find and good pictures.

    Thanks guys

    Good work!

    It seems silly that Fox hasn't made one themselves yet, surely the demand is there. Especially seeing a little thing like that could push a potential buyer in the direction of Rockshox.

    Thanks guys,

    Um yeah send some pics of the shock etc. just post them on here and we can sort something out. And what year is it.

    We just need the schrader valve to be in the same spot as the rp2. But apparently on all 08 fox float rear shocks they are in the same position as mine. So a pic and we can sort it all out.

    Let me know man

    A dual system could be made using a gyro cable from a bmx. Probably the lower cable. If you're going to machine a cable retention thingo you may as well incorporate it into a lever, would be much neater.
