    2012 SID WC lowers on 2013 SID WC XX

    Accidentally bought a 2013 SID WC XX fork with 9mm QR lowers (eBay a$$hole misrepresented them) - can they be swapped for 2012 lowers with 15mm thru axle? I like the look of the 2012 lowers better anyway.

    I don't have a definite answer or unfortunately the time to look into it right now, but I think you might run into a problem on the air side. 2012 is dual air. 2013 is solo air. That might affect hole size/fitment on the bottom of the air side of that leg.

    It works just fine- my 2012 SID WC **** the bed at Breck Epic last year, and the SRAM Neutral support guys installed the 2013 soloair uppers into my 2012 Dual Air lowers because, in the words of the tech guy, "I put the new (white) fork on your bike, but I kept looking at it, and I knew you'd hate how it looked, so I took the (black) lowers off of your old fork and put them on the new uppers."
