Managed to find a good deal on a set of 2012 120mm SID XX's but really 100mm is the sweetspot for my frame - does anyone know if its possible to change the travel on these?
I know that you could add/remove spacers on the older Rockshox but I'm not sure about these...

Thanks,

Graham.

I had a look at the spares catalogue (p.36-38 of http://cdn.sram.com/cdn/farfuture/QX..._spc_rev_c.pdf).

Looks like the parts are all the same regardless of travel and the 'all travel spacer kit' (part 38) is included in the spring assembly suggesting that you can change the travel but then in the notes they say...
"6. 2012 SID 26” maximum travel setting = 120mm... Internal and chassis parts NOT compatible with SID 26” 100mm max travel.- Please note kit description travel specifications before ordering." ...which seems contradictory.

Can anyone make sense of this for me?

Are they duel air and similar internals to the 2010 ? If so I think it's possible. I increased my 80's to 100 (check my airborne thread) and now I have seen inside I could have easily taken them down to 60 (with the spacers that came in the box) and possibly even less with more spacers ...

WD :D

If you can I have a 20mm spacer I took out my Reba's, you can have it save you buying one.

Thanks Killedtime - I'll maybe get back to you.

I havnt actually ordered them yet (though i think i might tomorrow - I'll sleep on it tonight. Guess i can sell them on if they're no good).

Most of the info i can find suggests they can be reduced (though it would still be nice to have a definitive answer).
