Thanks mate, gonna look further into it!

That’s assuming you have a sram crankset? I just realised that sometime trek has different specs in different countries, I looked at the US website

2020 Slash 8 rear shock upgrade

Hey everyone, after damaging 2 rear wheels on my slash I decided to try a new shock and picked up a rockshox super deluxe ultimate air shock 230x57.5 truunion mount and standard bottom mount and I am wondering what hardware I need to fit it to my 2020 slash 8? Thanks in advance!

IDK who the official Trek guy is (I am sure he could answer) but I hear that Trek frames are designed where you can safely use a fork with 10mm more travel than stock. This true? I am looking to put a 170mm zeb (44mm offset) on my 2019 Slash 9.8.

the websites for the bikes state what the longest fork is.

It'll work. Officially you won't have a warranty, but many people have done it.

Yes, you can run a 170mm fork. Many of my team mates/co-workers have 170 and even 180mm forks on their previous generation slash's. They have had to warranty many parts/frames over the years for various issues but have not once run into trouble with running a longer fork.

Threw a 2021 X2 on my 2019 Slash 9.7 recently. Anyone know how many spacers come preinstalled from Fox on a 2021 Float X2 230x57.5? Bottom hardware is preventing me from getting the air sleeve off beyond the top two volume spacer slots. Before I pull my bottom hardware, figured I’d check here. Tried calling Fox and they could not give me a confident answer. Appreciate the info if anyone knows it.

I do adapter pins to fit 230mm eyelet shocks in place of the Reaktiv shocks: https://www.shockcraft.co.nz/rear-shocks/shock-conversions/deaktiv

What bike is yours off to have a Trunnion top and 230mm length? Most Trunnion 57.5mm stroke would be 205mm eye-eye length.
