Anyone running the new FOX DHX2 FACTORY 2020 spring on a 2018 AL Capra? Wondering if it clears the frame. Also curious the size you ordered.

I have a DHX2 on my Capra Limited...it's 250x70...however it's not a 2020 (not sure if they made changes this year?)

Hope that helps!

yeap they do that usually on February and the availability is normally from May and onwards. Nevertheless i am lucky !!! The base model is available in all sizes and so does the comp.all sizes except the XXL which i am waiting for....so i think it is a matter of days till it is available , too.

I'm not an expert, but I think YT usually puts out new bikes at the beginning of the year, rather than 6 months before the new year like other brands.

good evening,

at the momment all the XXL models seem to be out of stock.I have already tried to contact the YT and ask for availability but i got no answer.So i wanted to ask in here.what do you guys think.Will the 2019 models be available? or should i wait untill February and then untill May?
that is how i got my 2017 Capra....but waiting that long is not an option anymore.
any thoughts would be appreciated.




cheers

Anyone found out about the new roller bearing compatibility on the YT capra with X2's?

https://www.pinkbike.com/news/fox-announces-new-fit-fork-dampers-and-a-roller-bearing-kit-for-shocks.html

Ive tried to contact the local supplier for the same thing but no info currently.

That should be a great tuneup for the x2 for sure

Anyone else can't get the full travel out of their rear shock ? Even without the air in the shock theres always about 1 cm left..

Theres a 5mm spacer inside limiting the travel.

Can I remove it ? And what is the purpose behind this spacer ?

If anyone hasn’t experienced the E13 cassette creak yet- holy crap does it suck.

Greasing the tabs seems to be working though.

I'm 5'10" and a L (27.5) is perfect for me.

And greasing the plastic bushing inside and out prevents its return.
