    Check Ebay

    How much do you think the TPC parts is going to cost you , couple bills at least? that is if you could find one new , there are couple of nice SPV Max on Ebay , let say if you get it for 4 bills then sell your FFD , you will still be ahead of the game , or just keep the FFD as back up to keep your Prophet running for years to come.

    FWIW..cheers

    I saw the new TPC parts going for $100 on ebay. I believe there were only 2.

    Keep looking for a max 140 tpc. Even used is ok. You could have Mendoncyclesmith do a full rebuild to get it close to new.

    I'm not a fan of the SPV carbons Lefty Max. They are harder on the small bumps, but do have a bit of a pedal platform.
    Lead by my Lefty............... right down the trail, no brakes.

    FYI? For a FFD to TPC conversion, you just need the lower compression assembly, and blue knob. Your rebound damper is the same for both.

    An SPV unit, going to TPC requires both the compression unit, and the rebound, so it's more expensive......

    IIRC, $115 was MSRP for the compression unit, and knob.
