    New question here. Change travel for Canyon Spectral CF 8.0

    Hi

    I own a 2017 Canyon Spectral CF 8.0 with 140mm (Fox 34 Performance).

    I would like to increase the travel to either 150mm or 160mm..what do you guys think about that? The head angle is 67 degree.

    The CF 8.0 EX has the same frame but has a RockShox Pike RCT3 with 150mm.

    So..150mm shouldn't be a big issue..what about 160mm?

    150mm would be fine and I would do that if I was you. 160mm would be fine too if you can balance the suspension. 160mm may void your warranty though.

    Joe Barnes on the Canyon endure team runs a spectral with a 160mm fork.
