    Has anyone ridden an HDR 650 with CC DBAir and Fox CTD?

    Preferably back-to-back. I'm thinking about buying a DBAir for my HDR 650 but not sure if it's worth the extra weight and $$. I'd appreciate feedback from those who have tried both.

    I'd also consider the XF Vector air, but the Cane Creek setup guide for the Ibis seems like it would save me a lot of dial tweaking.

    thanks in advance

    There is a setup guide, but Cane Creek still a v complicated shock that takes time on the trail. The guide gives a starting point but vector air is pretty straight forward and a very good damper. Wouldn't ever select a Double Barrel because it was "easier"

    The Vector's lack of a climb switch is a deal breaker for me. My rides start with 3k-6k vertical feet of fairly smooth fire road climbing (and then it's all downhill). The one thing I actually like about the Fox CTD is the Climb mode.

    I checked the Cane Creek lounge, but haven't seen much on the HDR.
