I am thinking of increasing my rear wheel travel from 140mm to 150mm by swapping the shock on my Canyon Spectral AL6.0 2018.

The current shock is a 230mm x 60mm. The 2019 Spectral has 150mm rear wheel travel using 230mm x 65mm shock. I am wondering if I can just swap the shock? Not sure if there is any change in the pivot arms on the 2019 Spectral. But since the shock is still 230mm length and just the stroke is increased, I think it will be possible to swap it. Please correct me if I am wrong. Also, I am using the Rockshox Deluxe shock now and I'm thinking of swapping to a Super Deluxe. Not sure if it will fit properly.

If anyone has successfully swapped their 230mm x 60mm Deluxe shock with a 230mm x 65mm Super Deluxe shock, please share with me your process and pics too! Thanks in advanced!

I did this to my 2018 spectral (CFCool with no issue. Very easy upgrade.
