    I was planning on eventually replacing my CTD shock with a CCDBA, but after seeing this from Sea Otter, putting one of these on my TRc eventually is the plan now. HI/LOW speed compression, rebound, and a platform lever. All at 368 grams versus the 500 gram CCDBA. Looks like the perfect agressive shock for the TRc.

    That KIRK shock and the 2014 Deville 140mm - which is supposed to land at 1800g.
    Thatīd be really something!

    Yes. Yes it would. Is a price on "Kirk" known yet? Hopefully about same as CCDBA,

    The new float X may have promise. Has:
    bottom out progressiveness
    Bottom out force adjust
    And the ctd lever thingy is on the side so it may be usable (not that i could tell a difference on my XCc)

    Also noticed the new RS Dig damper. I think pinkbike reported it as hi/lo compression adjust. A pike w/ lyrik rc2 controls would grab my attention and save $200 on the BOS (but definitely not compare on the boutique factor).
    PM me for a great price on a pike 150 27.5 as new condition, barely seen dirt!

    No price stated yet, I will be checking the BOS site daily for when they officially add it to their line up. I am guessing it will be more than the CCDBA, as of now the BOS products are much more expensive, with their VIP'R shock being around 800 US dollars. Maybe they will bring their prices more in line with their competitors when selling in the US market. I have zero interest in the Float X. No hi and low compression adjustment, I'm out.



    EDIT: Just found price for the kirk, $720. So a little more than the CCDBA, but still somewhat reasonable. I'm definitely in.

    Pricing for the entire 2013/2014 product line for the American market:

    Nice build. I'm going to guess its around 25.5 lbs. maybe a little less.

    And keep an eye on the drive side lower pivot for the circle crack. You may get a new frame.

    Just how capable is a TRc? Watch and see

    Anyone else seen this video? It's amazing how capable our bike is. I've only had mine for 3 weeks, and it's already the best bike I've ever owned.

    Thanks for all the positive feedback. I'll put the bike on a scale some day and let you know the exact weight.

    Thanks for the advice on the circular crack. Not to keen on getting a replacement, although 142x12 would be a nice bonus.

    ...and was wondering how long until it started to crack. I'm wondering if I can just keep riding it until the new frame colors come out.

    Honestly you could wait for the new colors HOWEVER if SC still had your rear triangle in white in stock they will send you that. The only time they replace the whole frame is if they no longer have your matching rear triangle in stock.

    Does anyone have a guess as to when the 2014 models may be coming out?

    I'm wondering if SC have updated the way the lower pivot bolts into the rear triangle. The bonding here is obviously an area that's prone to failure. I think I read someone comment on the Bronson and mention that they've changed how this bolts together, I wonder of the TRc will get this redesign?

    Finally got my replacement frame built up and have put 50 miles or so on it. I gotta say coming from the older 135QR setup to this new 12x142 setup the rear end feels much stiffer! I gives me much more confidence kicking the rear end out and provides better tracking and feedback. I also switched up from a 90mm to 80mm stem and it handles like a surgeons scalpel. I could not be happier with with this bike!

    Threw the Lyrik Solo Air on for a bit - it's normally on the front of a TransAM hardtail that doesn't see much use. I'm either on this bike or my Chromag hardtail msot of the time. Travel is dropped to 145mm. It's white, because when it needed new lowers a while back, it was on a white bike. I'd gladly go for black lowers is someone wants to pony up the dough for them!

    I very much like the Revelation/Sektor Solo Air bastardised fork that's been on there, but wanted to see how the bike felt with the stiffer Lyrik chassis.

    The tweaked Lyrik damper is for sure nice, I far prefer the 6mm allen controlled Maxle vs. the QR version. It's a straight steer tube model vs. the tapered Rev/Sek fork. Not insanely stiffer, but enough so that it's noticable.
    A tapered Lyrik with black lowers would be sweet...

    The only downside is the Lyrik being just shy of a pound heavier, something I can live with for the performances difference. Bike is just over 26# as shown. Going to ride it a bit this way, probably swap back and forth a bit before deciding which fork to keep on there.

    ^do you have any issues with the compression range on the lyrik now that its lowered? Mine is at 135 and I have basically lost low speed. Need to have it tuned or figure something out for mine... luckily I'm very light and dont need a lot anyway so it still rides great

    Not that I've noticed, but have only had one ride on it, in a smooth and fast trail area. A couple rides on the usual chunky trails will let me know if it feels different than before.
    Left them the same as they've been since getting them all dialed in and it felt pretty good. I've also done some shimstack mods and removed the floodgate, which sorta' turns it into a poor mans RC2DH damper.

    Granted, the damping is enough nicer feeling than the Rev/Sek that I've gotten used to, I may not notice those other subtle differences!

    ahhh I see, I have the RC2DH damper already and am having this problem. Mine rides just great right now, I got lucky that at my weight it rides well even without much range of adjustment on low speed compression. Now to just figure out how to fix it

    I've got a Totem RC2DH on another bike, and they feel pretty similar. Only running a couple clicks of low and high on both.

    So you feel you've got no adjustment with the Low? Too divy at low speeds, or what? Maybe low oil level?
