    CCDBA-cs on T275 for all day rides?

    Im thinking about putting a CCDBA-cs on my new T275. Does anyone have experience riding this shock on all day rides (20-25 miles) with LOTS of climbing and equal amounts of descending? I got the bike with the monarch plus, and i like it, but have been long curious about the Cane Creek air shocks. I wish I had gotten the CCDBA-cs and was waiting on the inline! Oh well...
    Thanks!

    I have a CCDB CS on my 275 and love it. I really see no reason why you wouldn't like it on your bike.

    Can you let me know what your settings are for the CCDBA CS including sag?

    Thanks,

    I have been using this for the ccdb CS
    HSC 1.5 turns in
    HSR 1.5 turns in
    LSC 12 clicks in
    LSR 18 clicks in

    17-20mm of sag

    When i get riding it again i think I may start to bump up the LSR a bit
    Once you go slack, you never go back!

    looking at the recommended tunes for this bike/shock combo, i see that no volume spacers are fitted. in other words, there is no room for adjustment to less progression ...

    does that mean that there is performance to be gained by going to the XV can and adding adjusters to that? comments anyone?

    I don't know if the XVi can is necessary on this bike. I have Volume spacers in mine, and they were a noticeable change for the better. (I already thought it was good and it got better)

    ok, thx for the feedback. i also found a comment on the cane creek lounge that apparently intense had already found that standard cc dba can was correct, so i'll try it as recommended first ...

    Mine came with a Fox Factory shock but Jeni's Tracer DVO came with a spring that was too heavy so she ran a CCDBA for a few weeks and she said it was great on longish rides.
