Can't seem to get an answer from YT on this..looking for a new headset...anyone know what to buy and what size?

2017 CF Tues (old version)...?

Email the German office. They speak english and most of the questions I asked the SoCal office about my 2015 Capra were referred there anyway. The new kids running the SoCal shop know nothing about older YT bikes. Not their fault - there were hired on new and had no access to older gear. You would think they could give you specs on a 2017 headset, though......

I just built up a TUES MK III from the 'sale' -pretty stoked on it!

Sent my '17 Tues CF frame back today due to cracks developing around the linkage. I've never had to Warranty a frame before and coincidentally this is/was my first Carbon frame.

Hopefully the process will be smooth and painless.

Congratulations on the new YT. The new TUES rocks.

If they are sold out, no more will be available until beginning of 2019.

Are we talking about naked bodyweight or weight in riding gear (including armor and helmet)?

My bodyweight was about ~80kg and at time I switched to 275lb. But this season I was around ~75kg but still liked the 275lbs.

The Tues being so progressive I would look for 25-28% SAG at the damper shaft as that is probably closer to actual 30% of total suspension travel.

I think if your body weight is 70kg, 225lbs would be OK. If you are 70 kg fully kitted probably 200lbs is what you need. But being so light also check how much compression you have on.

Tues rider here. 73-75kg nekkid on a 275lb spring.. perfect.

72kg naked.

26% sag with 225x3.8 Fox steel coil and Fox VAN RC Performance (CM/RM tune).
It felt on the harsher side compared to Fox Floax X2 with 30% sag (with all 4 tokens and 131 psi pressure).

I ordered a 200x3.8 fox coil to test it. If it still feels harsh, then a lighter midvalve tune might be an option.

wow guys you are scaring me. I weight 65kg and was considering a tues for next year (currently riding a LP 920 pendbox).

Is it so hard to find a proper spring for the bike ? I was considering the bos syors.

I never had problems with my previous bikes, all with coil shocks

Has anyone experimented with bigger than 'standard' DH race tires like Maxxis WT 2.5 or Schwalbe 2.6 on the stock 30MM rims on a (2018 CF Pro)? Are there any rear clearance or general squirming issues on those e13 rims? Thanks
