    Using the FITFINDER tool on the CaneCreek website for the 2012 Trek Slash. It appears none of the CC shocks fit.

    Yeah the closest size is a 8.5 by 2.5 which is the size some people have done on large frames... Cane creek will not help with the upgrade because it cancels the warranty.... What I am asking is will the inline cane creek compress full travel without hitting the frame as ifthe cane creek dbs piggy back hits the down tube first... Thanks

    i'd just ask trek dude. they have to know.

    i asked them about some bottom brackets and other things like that for my slash and they get back to you usually that day if not the next. and obviously you know they're right.

    My buddy has a 2012 slash with a CCDB air. He had to do some modification if I recall but it's a lot better than that proprietary crap they spec the bike with.

    I would NOT do the inline on that bike. I've heard they are geared towards less travel hard hitting bikes and more XC/ trail use.

    The ccdb shock doesn't fit on the medium frame? What size I'd his frame? The inline is the same technology at ccdb air. The only different is the oil capacity? They are coming stock on the new 2016 specialized enduro s with 165mm

    the CCDB inline is pretty much the same as a CCDB air, except it doesn't have the piggy back. dude, just email trek, if you did that the first day you posted this you would have already had a definitive answer and instructions on what to do hahaha

    I have talked to trek and they don't want to help because it ruins the warranty.. Trek doesn't have any kits for a shock like this. It's all custom.

    yeah, i just went to a Demo today, there was a trek truck there, you can't get any sort of mount unless its custom built.

    Well I think I can just set it up like it is on the bottom mounting hardware.. throw some bushings in it and spacer and change it to a 8mm bolt and replace the bearings and put 8mm Id in. I think I just need bushings that are 46mm length by 8mm inside diameter.

    whatever you want dude, but idk if i'd void warranty on your frame for a CCDB, you could get the new monarch Debonair plus. i have it, it kicks ass, no, nowhere near as adjustable as the CCDB, but still a great shock

    Yeah well thank the input, but I'm pretty set on the CCDB inline. Everyone I have talked to said it feels as good as the CCDB air.
