    but the CCDB fits into the small frame. Performance is even better.

    Hi geosnow,
    thanks! I saw some photos of small frames with the CCDB, but the Italian importer DSB that I contacted by email, told me that it does not fit in the frame....

    Hi Maramouse,

    have a look at my post #46. To change the settings you need to unscrew the CCDB but once set up you don't need to change anything.

    Very nice set bik but please change the tires. Nobby Nics are light but performance is weak (I had two pairs snakeskin exo ones). Try Advantage/Ardent 2.25 combo with eclipse tubes!

    I'm thinking of building up a Tracer 2, but I have a ton of huge climbs around me. How do the bikes climb? Thanks.
    Gotta get up to get down.

    It climbs better then the Intense Uzzi, the same as the Lapierre Spicy and maybe less then a Mojo SL.

    With light parts and and a fork around 150 the T2 will climb easily.

    WOW, i like the suspension set up. I am planning to build with that kind of set up with Marzocchi 55 RC3 Ti and Roco Coil RC WC. I do only have one concern, if the Roco Coil can fit into a small size frame.

    TinyBga: I went with the TST cause I really want to make it an all-dayer. Finally took it out for maiden voyage today. The suspension is DOPE! I'm really gonna have to play with the different TST settings to see which I prefer. But at 36 lbs I'm gonna have to get used to the added weight. The 2x10 39/26 setup seems perfect to help me with it.

    New question here. Ccdb

    Guess someone here will know the correct size of the hardwear / reducers for my new CCDB?
    Its shipped with 24mm & 27mm, and both look too short, which isn't good, considering the shock importer also imports intense!

    It is not easy to get to the CCDB and I am wondering if it wouldn't be better to turn it around. Just not sure if the reducers will fit that way.

    Once the CCDB is set up you can leave it alone. Otherwise it is not a big deal to change the settings. This will take about 5 minutes.

    JoeBlob,

    I wasnt happy with the lower mounting bolt for my CCDB, it looked marginally too short and also it was threaded along 80% of its length, which seemed odd as I would expect it to be smooth where it is in contact with the mounting hardware. The shop couldnt say with any confidence it was correct, so I contacted Extra UK directly who were very helpful and sent me a longer bolt which is also smooth where it is in contact with the mounting hardware.

    Yup, noticed the same thing and tried to source bolts with less thread, with no success.
    CCDB is from Extra so I would hope they know the correct size hardware to send out for a T2 but the spacers seem to come up short?
    Did the reducers for your DB come in many pieces? 1*tube, 2*"o"ring & multiple reducing pieces?
    Will maybe need to contact Extra about both issues.
    Cheers.

    CCDB spacers

    I just had to replace the bushing and spacers that shipped with my CCDB after 2 months as they were the wrong size. I've had a ccdb on my Uzzi which was fine, but I had play from the outset with the CCDB that I got for the Tracer 2.

    I was riding the Mega Avalanche and checked with the Intense guys who had a stand there this year.....it was obvious that I had did not have the correct spacing when comparing it to the Tracer 2 with CCDB they had on-site. My bolt had also bent as a result of the play which meant no riding on the Sunday for me :-(

    I spoke with Tftuned who have shipped me a new pin, bushing and spacer which have now been fitted with no problems. The reference they had in the database for a Tracer 2 was also incorrect, so make sure you measure and ask for the correct size.

    How can they get this so wrong?, they Import Intense & Cane Creek, you would have thought it would be hard to get it wrong. Will contact them this week.

    I got my CCDB from TFTuned at the start of May. I gave them all the measurements (which I got from Extra) and had no problems at all.

    Mine was shipped with the shock already mounted, so I havent taken the reducers off to check. I'll have a look this evening and let you know, I'm worried the spacers on mine may also be incorrect now!

    Are you sure, mine was a first post (above) and it let me attach photos? I just used the paperclip icon and uploaded the files directly from my computer. I've been a member for a couple of years though, maybe thats why?

    How does the tracer 2 climb with the CCDB? Does it bounce around while pedaling?

    Once the low speed compression and rebound are dialled in correctly its pretty stable when climbing. I havent tried one with any other shock though, so cant compare to say an RP23.

    Thanks! The gold parts were carried over from my previous bike, I wasn't sure if they'd go with the silver frame, but it looks better than I thought it would.

    They don't. They set it up for your weight/riding style and bike. Something I'm quite happy to take expert advice on.

    On another note - I spent a week in the French/Swiss Alps on the DH bike, came back home and I'm now hammering the T2 on everything I can find! One of my riding buddies now want's a T2!

    Hi Divere,
    no problems with the middle ring position, the chain in this position is on the centre of the roller of the bash, I don't have the 44.

    I run my Fox 36 RC2 Talas on its mid travel 140mm setting most of the time, only winding out to 160mm for steeper descents, and it feels fine.

    I would expect that a 150mm fork coupled with the 5.7" travel option at the rear would work OK.

    good info, thanks!

    spoke with intense last week and they are essentially out of the CCDB for the forseeable future - so i went ahead and pulled the trigger with an RP23.

    If i hate it (and i suspect i might, just not a fan of that shock) - i'll start looking for deals and upgrade.

    thanks again!
