Has anybody increased the fork travel from 170mm to 180mm on the current generation 27.5 Capra (without adjusting the shock)? If so, how does the handling change?

Also, I'm considering upgrading both the damper and airpsring on my Lyrik, but the damper is significantly more expensive than the airspring. Is getting the damper upgrade worth it for the additional cost?

Just did it when I swapped to the 2019 debonair spring in 180. Not a big change in geometry- you aren't adding that much travel and the negative air spring is bigger in the new 2019 (front end is probably only 6mm or so higher). The fork feels wayyyyy better though. Highly recommended.

Good marketing strategy, YT...

Though I got a temporary spare cap made by a local craftsman and already asked my friend in the US to order the original set and bring this to EU for me, YT EU has replied finally after about 10 days, apologized for late answer and not having the parts available in the EU shop and sent me 2 spare caps for the horst link bolt. Guess they're busy, but trying to make up for this. Nice!

What alternative axles have people bought for their capras?
I hate using QR as I always worry when locking my bike up and cba carry and extender cable everywhere.
Plus just spent 700 on upgrading the wheelset.
I am not bother about the extra two seconds it takes to whip a tool out.
Apparently its not as simple as using any "boost" axle in the rear.
Will want one to replace the fox for at the front too.

Thanks

I great front axle can be had from OneUp Components. Someone else will need to chime in for the rear axle.

Guys, does anyone have luck eliminating the creaking noise by replacing SRAM dub pressfit bearings?
Already re-greased all the cranks, axle and chainring two times with no luck.

f*cking standards man Frown thought I could reuse my fr turbine crankset for my 2018 all comp. But no. The new al comp has a 24mm pf bb instead of the 2018 which is pf 30. Not resusing that rf pf30 from last year. Long story short, what other PF30s are people using ? Ta

Did you try repacking the grease in the bottom bracket? If yes, try removing the bearings, cleaning the surfaces real good, put a coating of threadlock on the clean/dry surfaces and pressing the bearing back in. If after all that you still hear a creak, install a new bottom bracket. Get a good one, Chris King or equivalent.

Hey guys, what rear non-QR axle do you ride on your 2018+ capras??

Anybody here know the weight difference in 2018 and later aluminum frames vs carbon? Also suggestions for 2.5 tires in exo casing that are a bit more square profile for older 25mm id rims that roll decent for all mountain (MM to much in this case) now that maxxis has gone off the deep end and anything available is WTtype above 2.35 unless you get lucky? Maybe a good WTB or schwalbe or something that comes in inder $60 a tire (unicorn ...I know...) Used to be maxxis only guy but just cant find anything in stock to suit rims under 25mm anymore.. And have never tried other brands seriously. Conditions dry/loose. Thanks for any input.
