Does anyone have a guide on the Acros Aix-326 headset on the Capra cf? I've re-fitted mines and it doesn't seem right. Not sure if a bit is missing, no instructions anywhere and it doesn't exist on the Acros website itself!

Any help greatly appreciated!

Pf41 or pf46 should both work with 30mm spindle cranks

I have a problem with my 2016 capra cf pro race.
When I yank the wheel sideways I have this noise in the video below, It can't be good???
No noise when I pull upwards or downwards just sideways. The noise does not come from the wheel seems to come from the shock or linkage.

Anyone know what's the problem? Bad shock bushing?

Feel free to help me embed the video and sorry for bad English Smile

Have you tightened all linkage bolts? Those get loose easily.

I've literally just fitted a hope BB on my CF Pro Race, you need the Hope PF46. Just be prepared for how hard you need to hammer the crappy Sram BB to get it out. Link below dude.

Hey People! Few thoughts on the Fox suspension on the capra.

The trails i ride are mostly very fast and pretty technical, altough no all too big jumps (i am building some these days, now that im injured and can't really ride). As i have my hometrails 2 min from my house i ride mostly everyday. From my house to the uplift from my local DH-Trail its about 10-15 min with bike and 5 min with car. From the top of this lift there are several very technical and high-speed trails down the mountain.

My suspesion settings:
Front forks: pretty hard with about 0-5% Sag when i sit on the bike. i dont like Brake-Dive, so i pump it up. Compression: Lowspeed a little less than recommended, but highspeed a little more for when i huck into a rockgarden, which is my bad habit. Im not gonna say the amount of clicks because these depend on the weight and even more so on the riding style and terrain.

Shock: running 25% sag when i sit on the bike. Absolutely no high- or low-speed compression and a little slower rebound than recommended.

I don't have any compression as the shock is too long for the travel of the bike (222mm shock for 170mm travel). The shock is stock, so not tuned for the capra, as YT didn't let fox tune the shocks for the capra. And so 222mm Shocks are DH-length shocks, meant to be used with a much higher leverage rate. 222mm shocks are also used in the V10 and the Summum which have more than 200 mm travel (V10 even 215mm!) So the shocks operate at a much higher leverage rate and are also tuned for that with harder compression shimming. Fox don't even have a 222mm X2 shock with Climb-Mode because they say everything over 216mm is for DH.

Can anyone confirm that their Capra feels much livelier without any compression? Take out any compression on your X2 in your Capra and tell me how it feels, because my shock might be defect.

setup on my float x2 is 4 spacer with 0 clicks on high speed compression.

It's had to tell because the video is a bit shaky. I would check that the lower rockerarm is preloaded. Angular contact bearing sometimes need a bit of adjustment. If you just tighten the outside bolt it won't do much if the preload bolts are loose.

If you haven't already, remove the shock and check your rocker bolts on the inside of the seatstay.

Like mentioned. Check Upper Rockerarm bolts on the inside of the seatstay, came loose after first day/ride on mine CF Pro, and my brother's AL Comp as well. Also both Horst Link bolts came loose after the first day so check them as well.

I checked all bolts/links and bearings after about a month of riding. The right Horst Link bearing was already more or less toast, not moving at all. Re-greased it and working again. Other than that all links and bearings seem to be running smooth now.

But I have a clicking/creaking plastic/carbon noise that sounds like the frame is about to crack. It can easily be replicated by rolling the bike on the rear wheel down a curb etc. Anyone else experienced this? All links and shock mount is checked and is tightened to torque. I have checked the cable routings and tried to tape and eliminate cable ratling.

Any input would be great thanks! Smile
