I'm in need of a remote, handlebar mounted, lockout switch, ideally for a Magura Durin fork, but any make would probably do... It's only a lever after all. Something small would be the dogs, possibly an old Pace unit, but I'm open to suggestions. :?
I had thought of using a Suntour thumbie, but I'm not sure if that's legal...

Thanks Y'all. A suntour thumbie that would slip when wired up to a front mech works a treat! :D
Now it's at hand, I might even start to use lockout... :wink:
