    Locking out a Groove 200.

    Guys,
    It appears the WB Groove 200 can't be locked out. Can any of you confirm / deny this. I can't find anything in the owners manual and it sure doesn't look like it on the fork.

    It's going to a bit of a hassle for me if I'm correct because pushing long K's with weight through soft sand with a lot of front end bob means loss of efficiency = 1 tired Al at the end of it.....

    Thanks.

    Al

    Nope. As they are designed for downhill racing, there's not much reason to include a lockout. Perhaps you could modify the damping adjustment somehow.

    Good luck finding a fork over 100mm travel with lockout.

    Check your e-mail

    Watch your e-mail Alan, I just e-mail someone and copied you that I know who is a fork guru known my quite a few of us in the US, especially Michigan. If it's possible, I'm thinking this is the guy that would know how to do it.

    Not sure what all he's doing nowadays, he moved up in the bikeworld. Otherwise I would have posted his info here.

    You're welcome. I haven't looked at all of WB's offerings, do they have any lockouts that might be able to be modified? You never know, even the big fork may have some common components or design that might allow you to modify a lockout for it.
