Anyone potentialy interested in an un-used PUSH Elevensix S/S not the latest model the previous one for a Capra 29, I bought it in anticipation of getting a Capra 29 but I've decided to go with something else. I'm based in the UK so selling in the EU would be better but would be willing to post to the USA ect if you are willing to pay postage / import ect. As I say it's not used and comes with a mid tune and 450lb spring.

I am looking for some advice. I have a 2018 Capra cf pro race in liquid metal. It came with an xtr rear derailleur and ethirteen cassette. Thankfully swapped these out for an 11 speed gx, works a treat, I now wants lace the bottom bracket, crankset and chainring. Would like carbon and ideally nothing longer than a 170mm and 11 speed. Only problem is I’m having difficulty finding what I’m after? Am I looking for the wrong thing? The bike currently has the carbon trsr cranks and -8mm offset chainring with a bb92. What can you recommend? Would like sram if possible? Any links or recommendations for BB, cranksets or chainrings would be a big help, thanks.

Anyone try running 180 in the rear and 170 in the front of a 27.5 Capra? Thinking about putting a coil shock on, but it only comes in 250x75mm vs 250x70mm which I have on there now.

As long as there are no clearance issues at bottom out it should be a goer. The static geometry won’t change.

Some of the Capras come with a 250 x 75 shock and 180mm travel as standard so there is no issue. Then maybe invest in a new air shaft for the fork if you want more travel there too, air shafts are only cheap.

I was more concerned about how it would feel with 170/180 F/R, not so much the fit (which I had assumed would work as some come with the 75mm already, but thanks for the reassurance).

I doubt anyone could tell the difference between 170 and 180 at the back. You will definitely feel the difference between air and coil. Adding 5% of travel? Doubtful, in my opinion.

I have a Capra 29 that originally came 160/160. When I purchased a new shock a couple months ago I decided to up the travel to 170. It took a couple weeks for me to get around to increasing the fork travel to match — I couldn’t tell a difference at all. Increasing the stroke on the shock doesn’t change the geometry at all.

I'm doing the same on my capra 29 (the 29er is 160f/170r), works great with no issues

I’m admittedly on Jeffsy, but I run 150/160 F/R right now and I can’t feel anything untowards.

More travel in rear than front will work OK, however your HA will be steeper, which is not what I would want on the Capra, for my trails.

This is only true if you increase eye-to-eye length. It’s not the case when you increase stroke length, which is what’s being discussed here.

Ok, thanks for all the insight, I think I'll go for it, once I figure out how to change around the mounting hardware.

Anyone know the thread specs for these bolts? Seems like I lost one somehow.

I know they're 8mm x 30mm and 8mm x 40mm
Maybe these would help?
