Soo I have a 2018 capra 27.5 running at 170. I'm seriously considering getting a Jeffsy cf pro 29er, upping the fork to 160, and slapping on a coil.
What do you all think? I want better climbing/pedaling, better seat angle, and a little peppier ride than a full blown capra. Or is it dumb and I'm just trying to make a Jeffsy a capra? I ride in Laguna/so cal.


So do you actually use all 170 on Capra 27? I’d buy the CF Pro Race with the 150 travel and then slap a coil on the back. I haven’t bottomed out my CF Pro Race yet and I’ve been on some pretty rowdy trails in Moab and other parts of Southern Utah. You get so much more with the Pro Race and ultimately once you get your coil on it you’ll love it way more.

Almost never bottom out. You're basically reading my mind. I think thats the way i'm going to go. tomorrow I will demo them both at YT and try to demo the canyon too. (for kicks)

Update: demo'd Jeffsy pro race (150 mm travel) and a capra pro (160) at YT USA hq. First off, the entire crew here is amazing. They know their stuff and are extremely approachable. Even got advice from with the schleyer himself.
Right now I'm sipping on a craft beer from their tap, waiting for my Capra.
I liked the Jeffsy, but for me the overall posit on the Capra felt more centered and I felt like I could rail the bike better through turns.
It's very back and forth though. One of the guys here long forked his Jeffsy and loves it.
Anyway, thnaks for the help and if you're in socal it's worth a visit to the HQ.

Sick! Sounds like a good time. Enjoy your bike!

Does anyone know what type of freehub body comes on the 2018 Jeffsy AL Comp? It still has the E Thirteen 9-46 cassette but I am gathering parts to go to the Eagle. I’d rather know if I need an XD driver now rather than after I’ve dropped the bike off at the shop.

It's an XD driver.

Anyone running an X2 or DHX2 on their Jeffsy by chance?
Thinking of upgrading my shock on my 2019 cf frame. 210x55

Cheers

Best shock on the market currently, it'll act any way you want it to. If you want even more plush though go coil...
I like a progressive setup so I run 3 spacers and 215 PSI and weigh 200 geared up.
.....

and I can confirm that the new Fidlock Thirstmaster fits with the X2 mounted.

Thx for the intel. I’m torn between the X2 for shock pump adjustability and the DHX2 fir the coil grip/traction. I’ve also eyed up the Hazzard but think I’d prefer the adjustability of the Fox better.

Thanks again.
