    That is the laziest answer for the laziest search! I'd tell you more, but I don't have that shock.

    1. get out adjuster tool.
    2. turn knobs and note settings out of box.
    3. compare to the site i linked you to above.
    4. decide which you want to run, if they don't match
    5. set sag.
    6. ride/bracket.

    I think it's a very good shock. Took alittle time to tune it. I haven't got it that different than the set up advised on the cane creek website.

    I think I might need the high volume sleeve though like some others have got. I can't use all my travel. I've got maybe 15mm of unused shock shaft.

    Can anyone comment on this?

    Hi Tom34:

    Please see my comments here regarding CCDB-Air upgrades:

    Chilcotin: The inevitable DB-air setup thread

    You do not need the larger air can, but you should look to have the inner air sleeve replaced under warranty. You can contact Cane Creek to find out who is the closest authorized service centre to you.

    Cheers!

    Wow cool thanks for that Noel! I'd also like to say thanks for making the best bike out there I love the chill!

    I'm very happy with the CCDB air shock but when I got on my friend's delirium with CCDB coil I was blown away by how much better it was. I just felt like it was tracking the terrain going down that much better. Having said this i'll ask cane creek for the inner sleeve like you said and see how that goes. Cheers!

    For what it's worth, Dusty and Noel have commented that the shock is designed with 2.25" of travel, but the shaft length is 2.5". Their comments are #'s 271 and 275, and can be found here: Chilcotin: The inevitable DB-air setup thread.
