    I need to know if my Rock Shox SID Race forks have lockout or not.
    Can anyone advise?

    many thanks

    Obviously not if you can't find it.

    I thought so.
    I have an external rebound adjuster so to avoid lockout it needs to be tuned correctly.

    I would've thought that only 'recreational' forks that are designed to be used on and off road would need this feature?

    No, you often find a lockout or lockdown feature on high end forks - my Pace RC41s have it, as did the RC36s I had before that. Being able to reduce the travel is very handy for climbing steep hills, and lockout is good for fireroads etc.
