I usually sand red teflon coating down with fine sandpaper until everything moves relatively free then apply some SRAM butter.

I'll check tomorrow but I think I've a set of spare top bushings for Rockshox shocks in the garage that I will no longer need as decided to sell on my Swoop frame as fancy a NS Snabb 160.

Top is 22.2x8. Bottom is 42.2x8.

Hi guys, I’m looking to upgrade my shock on my swoop 170 it’s the 2017 model. I wanna swap over to a Coil shock but unsure on what size I’ll need? Currently running a RockShox debonair rct3. Any info would be appreciated. Cheers

216mm (eye to eye) x 63mm (stroke). AKA 8.5" x 2.5".

Not sure what spring rate you'd need, but there are calculators if you have a quick search.

Personally I would not recommend a coil on this frame as the leverage ratio curve is quite linear. You may find you can't find a nice balance between sag, compliance/resistance, and bottoming out. MRP make progressive springs which may help a bit.

I looked into it also and those who know the frame and suspension said the same. Linear curve and coil springs aren't a great match.

Cool, thanks for the info. I’ll probably just upgrade the air shock then. Any recommendations to a decent one?

I've just serviced my vivid air after three summer seasons in the french and Swiss Alps and Holy shit what a difference. Added four tokens in it. Now running 10psi less at 30% sag and it's amazing. So maybe just think about doing that before you splash out on a new shock. I was in the same boat but now I'm happy with the vivid. Just the no climb switch on long high alpine climbs is abit shit but I got used to it now.

The RS Vivid air with a few spacers inside matches their air forks with debonair/luftkappe very nicely. and glad to see you didint sell the betty (swoop)

Can't fault the X2 on my Swoop 170, with volume reducers in it.
A bit more tuneable that the Vivid (if that's a good thing?) and there's a climb switch version.
Also easier to open up than a Vivid to put volume reducers in.

I'm heading to Whistler next year. Therefore looking to put a Sram seven speed on the rear. The hub body is XD I believe?? 2016 swoop.

Apart from cassette, shifter and mec. Is there anything else I require? Spacers etc??

Any help is much appreciated. Cheers.

The 7 speed DH cassette has a built in spacer, so that it fits on an 11 speed free hub.
It still uses an 11 speed chain.
