    "Inline" Carbine 275

    The rebound damper on my stock shock went out. Instead of waiting for it to be serviced under warranty, I accidentally bought this:

    You're going to be stoked, the DB Inline is awesome! You might need to fine tune for your personal preference, but the external adjustment makes it really easy.

    Any tips on where to start with the settings for a Carbine (VPP in general)?? It shipped with just a neutral factory tune.

    Awesome! so what's the word???? Will be doing the same very soon.

    Also - I just swapped out my 10 yr old ATACS for the Time / Mavic branded enduro pseudo platforms, freaking awesome. Actually took them to Whistler with me and ran them on my rental DH bike. Guys thought I was nuts. They work awesome with the Carbine, worth checking into when you get around to a pedal swap.

    Only had one ride so far, but it was great! To be fair, I'm directly comparing it to a shock that I had been riding for 3 weeks that had no rebound damping.

    I just set the sag and set all the variables to what was recommended on the Cane Creek website. I'll have to play around with the settings as I get more ride time on it.

    SEcond ride this morning. I tweaked the air pressure a little bit and tweaked the low speed rebound. It felt like the rear wheel was glued to the ground. It was great.

    I'm a bigger gent at 210# and I think I was just too much man for the X-fusion shock that came on this bike. I had the same issue with Fox's CTD shock as well. This CCDB Inline stays high in the travel and feels very plush. So far so good.

    Ordering mine tomorrow for Carbine 275 2013 model. I've heard nothing but good about the double barrel shocks.

    Cane Creek site states they do not currently have a Base Tune developed for this bike. I guess best thing to do is set in the middle and adjust from there. Anyone at Intense running a new DB inline yet?

    What about mounting hardware / bushings ? did the shock come with them? if not, where did you get yours and what size was needed for the Carbine 275? any ride updates?

    thx in advance

    I just pulled the hardware from the stock shock and transferred it over to the Inline. Easy Peasy.

    So far I'm impressed with this shock. I'm still messing around with the settings, but so far it's much better feeling than the X-fusion that was stock.
