    2017 Capra travel

    Hey all,
    I was wondering if anyone knows how low you could go with travel on a Capra. I'm currently running the stock 170 up front but it's just gotten to be too much for where the majority of my riding is. I got the Capra Instead of the jeffsy because I wanted the extra rear travel for when I'm doing things like Clif Enduro east or riding in copper harbor, mi. Im looking at dropping to 150mm for the fork. Would 20mm be too much? Or would I be pretty fine. I'm also ok with the fact that it would steepen the HA slightly.
    Thanks all,
    Dan

    Ps. Here is a pic of her from my pre work ride the other day

    Hello, Why do you feel that 170mm is too much travel? Is it harder for you to ride the trails with a lot of travel? Just curious.

    It is harder. When I was in the Ozarks it was fine because it was up then down for trails but here in Michigan everything is hilly tech so it's constant punchy rooty stuff

    I think I see some spacers under the stem. Drop the fork to 160mm to maintain HA and BB height but also remove the spacers.
    Keep the Country country.
