    RockShox Tora 302 Solo Air 130mm lowers replacement

    Hello all,
    I have a 2011 RockShox Tora 302 Solo Air (26'). I am aware that many of the modern models from RockShox share parts (Lowers, CSU's, ect).

    I was wondering if anyone knew of a lower that has a 20mm thru axle that I could install on my fork to replace the current 9mm version with?

    I am pretty happy overall with the way the fork performs, but I would very much like the increase in stiffness a 20mm provides.

    I just took a quick look at the spare parts catalog, which you can download from SRAM's site. You may be in luck if it's a 2011 model. older 2009 and prior cannot use 20mm lowers but I heard 2010 and newer are a little wider in the crown and can. I'd still call SRAM, but the way I read it, you should be able to. Now, the lowers and maxle most likely would cost more than the fork is worth, but that's only my opinion.

    Thanks for your response! The only reason I am considering it is the fact that the fork does perform pretty well for the way I ride it and I have seen some lower online for under 150 bucks. You bring up a good point by mentioning the maxle light. They are listed online from 50 to 70 bucks. That would increase the price considerably.

    Im honestly planning on buying another fork anyway. I have been toying with the idea of buying a second frame (On One Evo) that I wanted to put this fork on. Since I plan on moving to 20mm with the new fork for my current bike, I would like to be able to swap wheels between the both of them depending on what I plan on riding that day. Light wheels for XC, heavy wheels for bike parks and freeriding.

    Thanks again.
