    Hey, I sent you a PM a few days ago, let me know if you are interested!

    you’re very familiar with this place, if you start splitting you’re gonna get messages about the tiniest possible components.

    I would definitely take the bell please

    Love it

    Did you get the kiddy cranks adaptor yet? And how did it go? I'm thinking of going the same route.

    No worries. I'll let you know if it works when I finally get it all, but it might take a while. Good luck

    So I'm not 100%, but 90% sure. I think it will work because although decathlon only lists compatibility with pre 2013 R7 forks, I think this is just because those are the forks that come/came on bikes they sell and that all the dampers that work for the (older, pre 2018) R7s also work for the Markour.

    If you look at other places in which the damper is listed it lists compatibility with R7s and Markours, e.g. here:


    Which is definitely the damper needed for the Markour (the product number is the same as the one in the Markour manual: https://support.decathlon.be/sites/decat­hlonsav/files/markhor-service-guide.pdf )

    Also, if you look at the manuals for an R7 from the period that Decalthon list compatibility, you will see that the part number for the ABS damper compatible with them is the same as the part number for the ABSs that fit the Markour:

    https://www.yumpu.com/en/document/read/3­4279076/2010-fork-service-manualpdf-mani­tou (this is an R7 manual from 2010)

    As I said I'm not 100% sure. But I've ordered the fork from Rose and the damper upgrade and will return the latter if it doesn't work (decathlon have 1 year returns). I'll report back, but it is going to take a while for it all to get to me. Rose say 5 weeks on the fork and the damper will be going to London before being sent on to me (in Oslo) later.

    Sus forks with 1 1/8 are hard to come by. Suntour and RST make a bunch, but I think they are mostly things designed for commuting bikes (that often come with suspension in some european countries). Rockshox make a number of their lower end forks with 1 1/8th (Judy, Recon, etc.). But the best option I could find was a Manitou Markour. Rose currently have them for 200 euros:


    I think you can also upgrade the damper on a Markour to ABS+ suspension using this:


    [Edit: for some reason I read your post as looking for a 29er fork... what I said applies to that. Given the DISS is 26 you probably have more options. Wiggle have a few old Reba's on sale at the moment that may work]

    No worries, let me know (happy for @Fox to be first in line if you do decide to sell them)
