Fox float ctd issue
Anyone with a 2013 Canyon Strive or other bike thinking that the shock goes too easily through it’s travel? The float ctd bv seems to have little holding it back mid stroke so even though sag is set at 20% I’m pushing the rubber ring off the end of the shock in trail mode on nothing more than 18″ drops.
Mojo suggested a spring volume tuning kit to ramp up the end of the stroke but before I shell out £33 I figured it was worth asking if anyone else had issues in case it could be something else. It doesn’t seem right that a shock needs upgrading from new – or are they known for this?

Which is what I suggested on Saturday anyway !?
Yup, but I can’t get my head round them putting a shock on a bike that doesn’t do the job properly so I had to ask. If I spent hundreds on any other product that didnt do the job it’s supposed to from new I’d be livid. I’m still non too pleased about this. 😐Posted 5 years agocrundiMember
I’ve got the spacer kit which comes in three sizes – small, medium, large. It takes 2mins to de-pressurize, unscrew the shock, fit a spacer and test. I’m running the medium spacer at the moment, last week I was trying the large volume spacer and it nearly bucked me off the bike. The spacer will sort your lardy @$$ out. 😆Posted 5 years agowillberMember
I had an RP23 Kashima on my Nomad c and got rid of it for a CCDB due to this issue. At the time I spoke to a few ‘knowlegable’ people and was advised something like the bike company has to pick a shock tune ‘as standard’ and so they go for something like a 12 stone guy or something. If your significantly above this then you struggle to get the shock to behave properly.
I was gona get a revalve, and should have tried the volume spacers before I ditched it all together – but im happy running the coil that I’ve got on there now.Posted 5 years agoDougMember
Got the biggest spacer in the CTD on my AL+. Couldnt get anything other than supermarket special performance without the volume kit. It was a long wait from December until I could get my hands on the CTD kit. The bike is pretty much sorted now although at 17st kitted up I’m bang on the limit of what the standard rebound damping can control. Not an issue as the weights still coming off. I’ll consider a retune once I loose a few more stone.
Once you’ve got the rear sorted you’ll probably want to add a few ml of oil to the fork air chamber to get a balanced feel to the suspension.
I cant see why Canyon dont offer to put the correct spacer for your weight in the shock for a small upcharge in a similar fashion to theyre correct fork spring weight service.Posted 5 years ago
