    Not even a small bottle?

    Has any one installed the volume spacer in the DB CS yet? How did it make the bike ride?


    Also what travel are you guys riding it at? I have left it in the shorter travel so far.

    Thanks

    Strange question. I took my rear wheel off the other day. I didn't notice anything, but my buddy "thought" he saw a washer drop to the ground. Are there any washers on the thru axle? I wasn't aware of any when I pulled the wheel off.

    What's everybody running for the settings on their ccdba-cs on the T275?
    For trail, just the recommended settings from the factory. For big jump trails, 1/4 turn more hsr so I don't get bucked.

    I rode a demo T275 today and couldnt get it feeling good at all. It felt harsh no matter what i did. It had fox evolution fork and shock on it...im suspecting this is why.

    Probably just didn't have the suspension set up correctly for your weight etc. The pike and ccdb are nice, but fox stuff isn't shitty by any means.

    Have the shop you demoed the bike from spend a bit more time with you setting up the suspension for your liking. These bikes tend to ride pretty plush and shouldnt be harsh, but the evolution suspension isnt necessarily the best either...

    Many thanks on the measurements and recommendations on sizing! I ended up picking up a large and at 6'2" I am very glad I didn't go bigger (I know the XL isn't out yet). Great bike. Now I just need to get out and ride more!
    Cheers!

    We spent a bunch of time setting up the suspension, and I did tons of tweaking on the trail. Rode another one with the Rockshox stuff today and was blown away at the difference. Completely different bike with good suspension on it!!! Very impressed.

    Hi

    Originally posted this in the picture thread. Guess that was wrong. Trying here instead.
    Planning my next build and now I'm on the tires. Can any of you measure the clearance in the triangle, and fork if you have a Pike? The conditions around here (mid Norway) is typical high roller II exo/3c. Wondering if the new 2.4" will fit.

    Thanks in advance.

    Vicegrips,

    Doesn't that hsr setting of only 1.5 make your rear end bouncy? The factory recommended is 2 turns in, and I find that i'm adding a quarter turn more hsr (so 2.25 hsr) so I don't get bucked on jump trails.

    Or do you find the added lsr compensates. for reference intense base tune is:
    hsc .75
    hsr 2
    lsc 5
    lsr 12

    all turning left to right

    Did you make sure to set your sag before you messed around with your settings? I'll check my settings again, it was a while ago i set it up. I run a little more sag on most of my vvp bikes.

    anyone ridden a monarch plus rc3 debonair and a ccdba-cs back to back on the T275? I've been on the ccdba-cs for about 10 rides. All i do is add a little more hsr (+.25 ) to keep it from bucking. thinking about selling the ccdba-cs and getting the debonair. any feedback from people that have ridden both?

    Thanks,

    Mark

    Hey Sam,

    Could you please tell me the correct dimensions I'll need to order for a Large T275 for a Rockshox Monarch + RC3 Debonair? Will I need new bushings etc, and My riding weight is 200lbs/aggressive rider/jumps etc so which tune should I go for? Do they offer specific tunes for the T275 and riding style/weight?

    Thanks,

    Mark

    Mark,

    You will need a 200x57mm shock with 6x21.4mm forward hardware and 6x29.9mm rear hardware. Tune we stock is M/M. Also, go for the standard air can-not the debonair version.

    Sam,

    yeah my whole reason for doing this was to get the debonair because it seems like RockShox is killing it right now with their new product, but if not I will just keep the Cane Creek

    C'mon sam! I thought the debonair was supposed to be the ****. Is it no good on the T 275?
