    New Cane Creek Double Barrel Air CS (Climb Switch)

    Looks like Cane Creek just announced their new Cane Creek Double Barrel Air CS (Climb Switch). It sounds like they've added a lever to flip that will provide platform via LSC and LSR for extended climbs. Sounds to me like one of the two complaints I've heard about the CCDBA, the absence of a lock out, might be addressed here.

    "With the new CS version of the DB Cane Creek have added another two low speed damping circuits, bringing the overall total up from four to six. The four previous circuits (LSC, LSR, HSC & HSR) work in exactly the same way as before, but they are now joined by an extra LSC and LSR which are engaged via the new ‘CS’. With the switch turned off your shock works exactly like a non-CS shock, but when you switch it on it engages the two new circuits, which in turn increases both the low speed compression and low speed rebound damping."

    Info here:

    Won't be possible. From CC:

    "The DB-Air CS is a completely different damper from the DB-Air, and it isn't possible to retrofit or upgrade to the CS platform. The DB-Air CS is a new shock separate from the DB-Air."

    New Cane Creek Double Barrel Air CS (Climb Switch)

    Better question is will Ibis switch the HDR shock upgrade over to a CCDBa-CS?
