Anyone know how to get 2016 truactiv descdendant cranks off a demo 8?
I've seen some removal videos, but they are about the new ones and I've tried everything,
maybe there is a certain way of doing it and t could be seized

Should be an 8mm hex (Turn counter-clockwise). It will probably be very tight the first time you try and undo it Eek . (Mine even had some blue threadloc on it). You will probably need a breaker bar for the leverage. Almost all modern cranks are impossible to take off just using hand strength.

If you still don't have any luck with a breaker bar. Try smacking the allen with a hammer whilst pushing in the same direction. Usually the impact help's undo stuff.


Specialzed love to massively over torque bolts, I snapped two chain device bolts undoing mine and the third let off sparks when it finally turned, was worried I was gonna destroy the thread in the tabs.

Does anyone know if you can change the BB on the 2016 demo to like a FSA or raceface BB?

Is the Dt Swiss fr570 the upgrade from the fr560? or vice-versa? And anyone know why? lighter? heavier? etc...?

560 is wider iirc, more of a preference if u like wide or narrow rims much like 471 vs 511 theyre both great just provide different riding characterisics.

Gotcha!
But was the 560 introduced before the 570? or 570 before the 560?

id guess 560 came out after as the 570 was a beefier 411 so a 560 should be a beefier 511? I don't know though just what comes to my mind.

Gotcha! Thats what I thought. LOL! Just seems weird how 560 came after 570.

Hello, Does anyone know if i can fit a Fox Float X2 into my demo 8 2019 alloy, i was searching and apparently Fox doesn't have a size that fits, but I've seen many demo 8 using a fox float x2 or DHX2, any help will be much appreciated Big Grin

I've got an old DHX5 9.5"x3" shock on my 2017 Alloy. I'm not sure what the metric equivalent is, but I do see that there's a DHX2 9.5"x3" on the buy'n'sell for my region: https://www.pinkbike.com/buysell/3207103/

Has anyone really had a cathastrophic failure with these carbon frame cracks under the shock?

Or is there pictures of disintegrated frames?
I have seen none.

My Spz dealer told me that Spz had said that frame is perfectly safe to send.

Nope i havn't experienced any failures my carbon frame is crack free for 7 years

More info on the wrap please! Professional or DIY? If DIY, hard to do? Looks good.
