Rockshox XC 32 29er Solo Air?
I was just kicking around on the Sram site and it lists Solo Air as one of the options for the XC 32, I can't find anymore information about it or the parts though. I have an XC 32 on my bike(until my Manitou arrives). I actually don't even know what solo air is as I am a total noob, is there any possibility that this would make my forks useable for me as a 265 lb rider?

New for 2013
I think this is a new model for 2013. I saw that Scott is specing it on some of their budget Scale 29ers and listed it as a air fork. That's about all I know.
Solo Air is an air spring cartridge instead of a steel spring. It uses a shock pump to pressurize it and automatically adjusts the negative air spring to the positive air spring pressure.
It is a little lighter and more adjustable than a steel spring, but is also a bit more maintenance.
