    How do you fit the volume reducer bands to the low volume can? I thought they are only used on the debonair can.

    Replaced my bottom bearings using a 120mm M12 bolt and M12 washers, which fit the outer bearing race perfectly. One tip is to have the lower link in position when you press in the new bearings so that you get everything matching up when you bolt it all back together.

    After some browsing I'll go the DIY way. I saw a lo of videos, seems to be ok.

    Here a Pic of my Spit. Yesterday I had enough time to crank a little up and down.



    Look at Sam Os on Strava.

    I always thought those red Spitfires were the business! Nice looking ride.

    I swapped the CCDB Air for a Manitou McLeod. Awesome. Hope to ride it in the Alps before October.

    Hey Spitfire owners! I'm riding mine un thé slack position for two years now. But as winter is coming slowly, my rides will tend to more xc-trail than usual, and that's why i'm thinking setting it in the middle position.
    Do you guys have seen any real world difference between the two positions?

    1500m D+ and D- in neutral position. I’m not sure if that make a big difference uphill. Downhill it’s ok. More tight turns than long Mach speed turns.

    Neutral setting improves tight cornering, slack improves high speed cornering. It's noticeable to me.
