    Chilcotin - CCDB Coil - Settings.

    There seems to be a few Chilcotin owners running CCDB Coil shocks, but no dedicated setup thread that i could see.

    Cane Creeks current base settings are:

    Chilcotin - CCDB Coil - Settings.-chili-ccdb-coil.png

    1) What settings are you now using? (are you still tinkering?)
    2) What size of spring did you settle on for your weight? (i.e. anyone using a stiffer spring than suggested)
    3) What make of spring you using (stock, aftermarket Ti, ...)?
    4) How many turns (1 - 5?) preload on the spring?

    Not a Chilcotin, Delirium. I thought the baseline was ok, opened everything up gradually until I hit the spot. 400# spring, 165lb, 350# w/ more preload topped out too much, didn't like.
    Nice KOM, sorry about your penis.

    Just put a CCBD Coil on my Chili. I'm trying to follow the Tuning Field Guide that came with the shock, which means taking it on multiple rides, one for each tweak to the settings. I've only run it stock from CC (only had one ride). Next week should give me a few good rides to get it dialed in.

    I run a 500 spring, and I'm close to 230lbs rtr.

    First ride impressions were decent. I was surprised at the amount of pedal bob, so I need to increase the LSC. I will probably back off the HSC to make it more plush, as I found square edge hits felt good, but more gradual hits to be too abrupt, like not absorbing the lip of a kicker enough.

    I'm 200lbs and have a 450 ti spring. I've been riding it a few months now on stock settings and it's brilliant for me. Haven't even wanted to adjust a thing. Preload i'm not 100% sure but i just turned it 2-3 times just so i can barely see some threads showing at the end. Basically just to make sure there was enough preload to engage the spring.

    I don't feel that it bobs at all when pedalling and it tracks really good when going downhill. Brilliant actually when going downhill cause i don't notice it. Which i did when i had the ccdb air on it.

    I just came off a Vivid Air RC2 on my XL Chili, which essentially had no pedal bob. Maybe 2-3mm, but it was imperceptible unless you were looking. My CCDB is probably closer to 10mm or less. I could get it figured out if it would stop raining.

    On My Chilcotin...
    Rider 140#
    350# Ti spring, zero preload. The spring only came in 2.5" length, so had to shoe horn it on. With no preload, Sag is perfect.
    LSC a few clicks softer than factory settings.
    Love it.

    What do you know? You've only tried a whole bunch of different shocks.

    There's also another CCDB Chili thread.

    I was running Tisser's setting with a touch more LSC to chase Lycra racerboi's.

    its a tricky one. if i was going to go air, then the kirk would have to be in the running. seems the woodie gets better rep than the ccdb coil while the ccdb coil is equal to or better than the air. next forks will be coil, 55 rc3 ti, when they get old, i'll ava them. still to speak to craig about servicing.
