Really digging that grey. More than I thought I would even. And that white is a nice touch. Let me know how long those pedals stay fresh Smile

I had the same pedals on my last bike and they went grey eventually.

I'm busy overhauling my Capra for the upcoming bike park session.
My 170mm Lyrik always did get sucked down to 160mm because of negativ pressure in the debonair spring.
I made a small service and installed a new 180mm debonair spring.
Now the Lyrik stands at 185mm.
Very good since I wanted more stack anyway and it looks great too.

Interesting. I have the 180mm debonair in mine and it settles at 170mm.

Yeah, I think that happens when almost all the grease on the debon air spring is gone.
The oil in my fork was pretty dark and there was like zero grease left on the airspring.
Also after I installed the new airspring and the air top cap I put 30 psi into the air chamber before installing the casting to make sure that the air sping is fully out. Than I shoved the casting on the stanchions put in the oil and screwed in the bolts without compressing the fork even a tiny little bit.
After that I compressed the fork a few times still at 30 psi, than at 60 psi and than 90 psi.
That worked pretty well.

Mine was that way after installing the 180 spring. It’s normal for it to sag under its own weight. 185mm on a 180 debonair doesn’t sound normal to me.

I my case it was no sag under it's own weight. It was a suck down.
Even if I lifted the fork and pulled on the crown. The stanchions were sucked in back right away.
Now that is gone and I happy Smile

luftkappe does that, it's caused when there is equal pressure in neg and pos champer thus helping in initial travel, aka small bump sensitivity,

Hey guys, just about to pull the trigger on a new capra, just after some opinions on sizing, I'm right in between Large and XL at 184cm and 75kg (between 6' and 6'1 and 165lbs) and was wondering if anyone here had the same dillema and what they went with. Cheers

I can't comment on your exact situation, but ask on this thread as well, I find it's more active. (I'm 5'10" and run a large).
