Hey guys, wondering if anyone had experience with getting a replacement linkage on a 2nd gen Strive? One of the screws broke off in the aluminum pivot plate and my LBS couldn't get it to budge.

Thanks!



I haven't had any experience with getting a replacement linkage, but I did have a similar issue with those screws. I was putting them back in and hardly Put any force through and the head snapped off. I managed to get it out with a screw extractor kit and just bought a couple replacement screws from a hardware store. I regards to getting the pin out, once you have both screws out yep all you need to do is tap it out. I generally use an Allen key on the pin and then hit it with a mallet. When putting it back in try use some lithium grease, I had some issues with creaking around that area and lithium grease on the bushings the pin sits in solved the issue.

Awesome, thx for the tip for the pin. Unfortunately, since the LBS already gave it a go, there's not much left to grab on to. That said, I did end up buying the silly kit to get the screws (I guess good to have on hand though), do you know what size you got from the store just for future reference? I guess I can give it a go with an extractor kit, but I'm worried if the shop couldn't get it, 0 chance I'm gonna have any luck. Glad to hear I'm not alone though!

Also, since you took the thing apart, how did you torque those inward facing linkage bolts? The ones at the top of the seat stays. I can't fit a torque wrench in there and thus I'm left with just using a regular allen key, but getting 20nm out of that alone is A. tough and B. imprecise. If you have any tips, that'd be huge, thx!

Hello Gunner Friends:

Let me tell you that I have a Canyon Strive 7.0 2020 (Size S). The thing is, I just bought a Shock RS Super Deluxe Ultimate, in addition to buying the MegNeg. (I haven't installed anything yet, because I lack a tool to install the shock).

Now I want to change my fork from the current RS Liryk 160mm / 51mm Offset to a ZEB Ultimate 170mm / 51mm Offset. The question is, is it convenient to keep the 51mm Offset or is it advisable to go down to 44mm Offset ???

Currently I have been very comfortable with the fork, the change is simply because the ZEB looks better and increases the travel.

I have a chance to go up to 180mm / 44 offset fork travel but I find it to be a lot for the frame geometry.

What do they say ??? ...

PS: Excuse my bad English XD

Greetings from Chile

Hola Amigos Cañoneros:

Les cuento que tengo una Canyon Strive 7.0 2020 (Talla S). El tema es que acabo de comprar un Shock RS Super Deluxe Ultimate, además de comprar el MegNeg. (Aun no instalo Nada, porque me falta herramienta para instalar el shock).

Ahora quiero cambiar mi horquilla desde la actual RS Liryk 160mm/ 51mm Offset a una ZEB Ultimate 170mm/51 mm Offset. La pregunta es, es conveniente mantener los 51mm Offset o es recomendable bajar a 44mm Offset ???

Actualmente he estado muy cómodo con la horquilla, el cambio es simplemente porque se ve mejor la ZEB y aumentar el recorrido.

Tengo la oportunidad de subir a el recorrido de horquilla a 180mm/44 Offset pero encuentro que es mucho para la geometría del cuadro.

Que dicen ??? ...

Saludos desde Chile

Be sure to get a 60 and not 65 mm stroke on your S Strive, only the bigger sizes can accomodate it.

Regarding the fork, the bike has been designed with a 44 mm offset initially. I've no idea why, but on the 2020 models using RS forks, they used 51 mm ones. This was not the case in 2019, not the case on the 2020 models with Fox suspensions, and still not the case either in 2021.
So, if you have the choice, get a 44 mm offset fork (that being said, the difference is small, it'll work as good with both offsets).

For the fork, keep in mind that the Canyon EWS are using long travel forks, and that it works really well. For example, Jack Moir is running a 180 mm Zeb, plus a 10 to 15 mm spacer under the headset. It's nearly 40 mm higher than the stock bike (Jack is a tall guy tho). You can also check the recent test of Enduro-mtb with that setup, they say it's great.
Not that you should do the same, it's very downhill oriented, but it can be an option and it won't ruin the geometry.
I myself use a 180 Lyrik and a 10 mm spacer on my Strive. Feels great, and not that bad on the climbs.



Thanks Friend, you have photos of your Strive to see how it looks with 180mm, please.

The one I have available is a ZEB 180mm / 44 offset

As it goes uphill, does the geometry change a lot? Is it uncomfortable for very long climbs?

Regarding Shock, buy size 230x60

Greetings

Last year picture :


Keep in mind the Lyrik has a 5 mm lower stack, and that being a B debonair, it's sucked down quite a bit. It's equivalent to a 170 mm Zeb I guess.

Guys, does anyone knows the shock hardware mounting sizes for the new canyon strive frames?
I need to order it, installing a fox dpx2, but I'm struggling to get this information (even canyon said they don't have it in their technical documents =/).

I measured bottom mount 25x8mm and top 16x8mm.

any thoughts?

Just put in an order for my wife's first proper MTB - Neuron AL 7 WMN. I'm wondering if anyone has tried putting a 30mm inner width rim on the rear to replace the 25mm? Is there still enough clearance to accommodate the 2.35 Nobby Nic (or something similar)?

I still have a set of Ethirteen wheels off my Jeffsy that would be quite an upgrade from the stock Iridiums with cup-cone Shimano hubs Eek

Hi,

I use my good old Nerve es 7.0 from 2007 as my winterbike.
Now I need a new freehub for my Ringlè-hub.
Is there any chance to find a freehub that fits?

Shimano hubs are normally cup-cone, though they've started doing some sealed bearing hubs recently. I think it's because cup cone hubs have less resistance than sealed. They're still better hubs than anything e13 ever made.

I had the same issue with the snapped off fastener in the linkage (I was able to get one out but the other snapped off). I contacted canyon, they said it is a known issue and sent me a new linkage along with a new pin as the old one was stuck in the linkage with the broken fastener. I took the new linkage to the hardware store and found a proper fastener and used those fasteners upon installation. Note that I was able to get the old pin out of the linkage after I had it off the bike with a bit of motivation (punch and ball peen hammer), it came out undamaged.

I've been experimenting with a 9point8 slack-r kit on my '19 strive. The bike feels so much better with ~1.5* slacker head angle. Also the wheelbase grew a whole inch. You will have to buy a short top headset cover to replace the proprietary canyon piece. I also think their specs for how much extra steerer tube you need are not quite enough. I've also been struggling with some creaking in the unit. I need to work on it a little more.

So nice to hear. Do you have some recommendation for a short top headset cover which was compatible?

Hey all, new to canyon and bought second hand. I'm rebuilding the rear monarch rc3 debonair and it looks like it's failing due to the damper shaft have scoring (someone serviced without proper tools it would seem). That said I didn't measure before I started and can't find the info online for what the shock dimensions are. It's a 2018 strive cf 7.0 size large. Any help with the shock size is appreciated (180x, 200x, etc.)

Also, does RockShox sell individual shock parts? Having trouble finding the shaft anywhere and want to get it ordered once I know the size.

Cheers!

Hi, I have an Intense Primer 2018 that came with a Monarch RL. The shaft is scored and unlike Fox they don't sell it. So I have this on the shelf and have since purchased a Cane Creek DB Coil IL. I'm in New Zealand. If anyone can get parts for Rockshox, I'm keen to buy, but I don't hold much hope.

Did anyone try 230x65 on 29" Spectral yet? Any frame contact issues?

Doesn't matter. Tried it. Looks fine at bottom out.
