Hi all

Does anyone know the axle length and thread size for a 2018 zesty 827? Have managed to strip the bolt but was hoping to order a new one before drilling it out so I can keep riding in the short term.

Had a Google search however can't seem to find this detail...


I assume you mean the rear axel? I have checked mine. It is 172mm in length, 12mm in diameter. FORMULA LAXQR-12E. Hope this helps.

Hi Steve,

Is this with a boost hub? Can you confirm the thread pitch as well?

Thanks
Mike

if you are in the uk, contact raleigh and they are pretty good at providing part numbers. ill measure my 2018 boost lapierre axle when i get home, it may have a part number on it!

Mike,

Mine is 2018 Zesty 827 carbon. I'm pretty sure they're non-boost. Maybe the next model went to boost.

Not sure about the thread pitch. It's a 12mm axle but the pitch looks to be more coarse than M12.

The guys at Bikes International might be able to help. They were real good when my E:I was playing up.

Hi everyone...

I’ve bought (from someone on here) what I believe to be a 2013 Spicy 316.

https://m.pinkbike.com/buysell/2890538/

So there seems to be a couple of bits missing, I’ve asked the seller if they still have them but I’ve had no reply. My main issue is there is no bolts to mount the rear shock. Can anyone see from these pictures what bits I need and also where I can get them? I’m not in a massive rush for this, it’s a build for my Mrs (first mountain bike) and we’ve just had a baby, so we’re not in a hurry to get out there.

Thanks in advance!

Craig

My 2018 alloy zesty is 12x148 boost, I’m pretty sure all models for 2018 were.

My Zesty 827 has an FSA Orbit 1.5E ZS No.57E head set fitted. Currently the bike is running 66.5 degrees of head tube angle. I'd like to try slacking this out more by fitting an angled headset. Has anyone had any experience with this?

I’m running a single offset bushing along with a 170mm Lyrik to drop the head angle to around 65 degrees. The bike rides so much better with the slacker angles and more travel! I might chuck in a 1 degree angle set as well to drop it down to a super slack 64 degrees, but I’m slightly concerned about doing that!! I recommend the offset bushings because they are dirt cheap. I haven’t tried, but I am only running one as it looks as if I ran 2 parts of the linkage might hit each other!! Good luck!!

Keen to hear more about the offset bushings. Do you have details to share?

I’m running one Offset bushing in the top of the rear shock, sizing 20x8 mm, and a standard one in the bottom mount, same size as the top mount. I’m concerned that if I used two offset bushings, parts of the frame may hit one another, so to keep it safe I just stuck with one. Lapierre seem to use a really wierd bushing size so I had to get them from offset bushings.com (I’m not sure if they are available outside the uk.) They are dirt cheap as well!! It slackened the headline by about half a degree, which felt slightly better on the extreme Steeps of tweed valley, but it was definitely a bit harder to jump and do 180s and stuff until I had got completely used to it. I think bumping up fork travel is a great option if your fork allows you to, As it makes the bike sooo much better, and the offset bushing helps keep the bb height in check! Just come back from a weekend in Fort William at the World Cup track and honestly in its current configuration, this zesty rips!!

does anyone run a coil shock on a 2018 zesty? it seems like it may be quite a linear kinematic as i have to stack my shock full of volume spacers to keep it working for me, but tbh the bike probably was not really designed for DH and freeride trails. maybe a progressive spring would then sort this out?

also, is anyone running a longer stroke shock over the stock 210x50, like a 210x52.5 for example? i need as much travel as i can get!! would this cause parts of the frame to hit one another, just curious if anyone has tried this before?

I much prefer a coil shock over an air shock, I feel like you get more consistent travel with a spring. Air shocks, for me, tend to get a lot stiffer through the travel, so I find them spongy with little or no load. As for increasing stroke length, I wouldn’t do it. Although it might seem like it’s only 2.5mm difference, that’s 5% increase, and more room for your swingarm and frame to collide. In fact, I don’t even think the movement is even there in the frame.
