Hi, does anyone know if you can adjust the travel of the 2019 Fox 36's with the Grip damper from 160 to 170mm. Nothing on the Fox website that I can see for the 2019 model.

Cheers

I believe that there are two different versions of the 36. Long travel and short travel. The long travel model has longer statchions to maintain stiffness that the long travel settings. If you have the short travel model you may not be able to increase travel and 160mm is the max. Look up the four digit code on the back of the fork and it may tell you whether it is long travel or not. If it doesn't say your best bet is to contact Fox directly. If it is possible to increase travel all you will need it a new air shaft which run around £20-30 I think.

The shop I bought my grip 2 36 from changed my travel from 160 to 180. It was an extra like $90 all in.

I called Fox a few months ago and they said all 2019 models can go up to 170 with just an air spring swap. You can call them to double check though. Just give them the 4 digit code on your fork.
