I know of another source with more in depth suspension analysis. Summary: Capra 275 is slightly less progressive than previous, still with a very progressive LR, less antisquat (you would like a climb switch there for fire-road, but its more active/more traction on technical climbing). Curiously, the 29er Capra has better antisquat, close to 100%...cheers..

It's like the upper west side ghetto, though...

the 30ish% sag is only because the LR&Wheelpath are designed around it, coupled with BB height&drop. Koolaid tastes gooood... cheers..

nice build mand...why would you lower the travel? leave it as stock.. its the same as a 180mm single crown.. I would think you wont be climbing techy steep stuff with your BOXXER, just bombing DH

until you start to hate your new CG, you realize you cannot do mini-manuals on blind trails where you cannot prepare your body position that fast... I guess that on a bike that you can pedal, reach is limited by the STA... there has to be a limit there ... more »

Many manufacturers of 170-180mm travel bikes state "dual-crown" compatibility... Knolly Delirium, Intese Uzzi, even Canfield Balance..
