    Some older air-sprung Bombers, Circa 2005-10ish?, like the Z1 SL used an adapter to connect a pump to their undersized valves. I'm in need of one of those, or if anyone knows of a retrofit solutions I'm all ears.

    Thanks!

    Are those similar to RS IFP valve adaptors?

    I put out the word for a straight steerer fork and a friend mailed me a Z1 SL. The thing is like new. But, no way to adjust air pressure.
    Once I confirm this thing works I'll see if I can lower the travel less than 130mm.

    I don't know.
    I don't know, but if you don't need it I'll gladly try it.

    @Nick I think I've got you covered. Need to go hunt downstairs in the garage.

    edit: great success, yours to collect when you want.

    Great fork, and it can be set to just about any travel you want by adjusting the ratio of negative to positive air pressure. It'll take some trial and error to get it dialed, but worth the time. It also has adjustable bottom out resistance via air valve to go with the LSC and rebound.

    That looks quite like the RS valve adapter.
