    Rockshox air cap fell off

    After a ride, I noticed the air cap is missing from my Rockshox Recon RL. The only replacement I can find online is $25 and it looks like it might also include the air valve and spring top cap, which I do not need. That seems pretty expensive for a small piece of plastic. Are there after market air caps that will fit that aren't so expensive?

    Here is a pic of the part I am talking about.

    Many moons ago I had a Reba and I replaced the valve cap with an 8-ball. It filled the space perfectly. You could opt for a bit of fun and go this route.

    Yeah. Just put any old cap on the schrader valve to keep dirt out of it.
    What, me worry?

    I would call rockshox and ask if they'll send you a new one. I bet they will free of charge.

    That's been my experience with most bike companies for stuff like this. Good customer service goes a long way in the business. If you call let us know what they say.

    Or your LBS might have one in a parts drawer that they would give you, especially if you are a regular customer.
