    • Before you begin with the dismount procedure of your pneumatic spring you should press your shapeshifter lever once to make sure your bike is in XC mode.

    • Reduce tensile stress by twisting the adjuster on your shapeshifter cable as close as you can to the lever.

    • For better accessibility and an easier workflow we use a bike stand.

    • Loosen the screw on the upper left side of your shapeshifter with a 4mm allen key.

    • Use a metal spudger and leverage the cap of the left side of the rocker.

    • Mount a 10mm socket wrench to your Canyon torque wrench and remove the 10mm screw nut which is placed under the cap.

    • Use a 6mm allen key to remove the stud bolt at the left side of the seat strut hinge.

    • Use a 6mm allen key to loosen the shaft of the rocker bearing on the right side of the frame.

    • If you pull the shaft out to far, your whole bike will break down.... more or less at least.

    • Pull the shaft about 2cm out of its bearing.

    • Pull off the left sided cover of the rocker. Take care of the two spacers behind it! They are kind of tiny and easy to lose.

    • Use a 5mm allen key to remove the bolt damper. While doing so hold its counterpart with your other hand!

    • Remove the plastic cover afterwards. You should be careful to not break it, even though it is kind of flexible. This little cover perches very tight.

    • Provided that you used a bike stand, put the bike carefully back to the ground. Slew the damper out of the bracket of the gas spring.

    • Drain the bike slowly downwards, until the articulation rests on the damper.

    • After having a close look, we can see the shifter cable behind the right cover of the damper. Go on and unhook it!

    • If done so, you can pull off the pneumatic spring to the left side of its axis.

    • Take or clip off the cap at the end of the pulling cable. If you want to clip it off, you can use a side cutter or something similar.

    • Loosen the clamp of the pulling cable with a 2mm hexagonal.

    • Hold the pneumatic spring with one and the pulling cable with the other hand. Now you can easily pull the spring off the cable.

  9. Strive AL 6.0 Race Pneumatic Spring Replacement: step 9, image 1 of 2 Strive AL 6.0 Race Pneumatic Spring Replacement: step 9, image 2 of 2
    • Push the open end of the pulling cable a few centimeters back into the cable routing.

    • The cable will move out of the bar lever of your damper. Get a good grip and pull it out.
