    Rockshox Dual Position Air Spring questions

    I read some stuff that indicates the dual position air spring has a different spring rate and/or different compression damping in the short mode vs the long. Can anyone provide so real insight into this? I am close to pulling the trigger on a Revelation w/ dual position air but only if I can use it in both modes. Mostly it will be in long but I want to run it short for climbs and super twisty sections. Also wondering if all the damper adjustments work in both settings? (RCT3 probably, maybe RLT if I can find one). Can the fork be locked out in long and short? Anything I am missing here? I am looking at mostly 2013 & 2014.
    Thanks

    "Also consider: RockShox Revelation RCT3 Dual Position Air, £725. The DPA switch gives 30mm of instant travel change, but itís very linear and easy to bottom out."

    This is a good point, and it's not obvious from reading the information about the fork. In fact, I didn't realize this when I bought mine, I only read it after. It is pretty soft in the 120mm position. Still, I have ridden it in the 120 position a fair bit and it's not like it doesn't work. That said, I've started riding it at 150, which I thought would be too tall, but I'm adjusting fine.
