    Mtbr's Angry Singlespeeder flew out there to check it out.

    Gear Review: Cane Creek DBinline Air Shock | Mountain Bike Review

    We should get a production model in June and we'll put it in a Ripley.

The twin tube is the key different not the shock orientation (or even the lack of an IFP). Also, Magura made a range of non-piggy back shocks that used a twin tube approach years ago, so the claimed "first of its kind" is also a bit of stretch. eg Magura Hugin rear shocks.

    I just grow tired at reading these so-called reviews that are really just a republication of a manufacturer's press release.

    I do like the shock though and the possibility of a 6.5 x 1.5 option would be excellent.
    While I'm not a fan of so-called "reviews" that do nothing more than parroting the marketing copy from the manufacturer I think the reason for orienting the shock as they did was due to the way it will be mounted (the damping controls on the DB inline are on the opposite end from where they'd be on a "normal" air shock. Also, the oil flow through the shock is clearly different.

    Nothing like sending a single-speed hardtail rider out to review the nuances of a highly engineered rear shock that could be a new option for those that like to tinker move beyond the 3 position pre-sets of the day. Sounds like the Angry SS didn't stray from the base tune at all. Hmmm .

    I REALLY want to like this new product and it's possible tuning efforts. I think it's a big step in the right direction for tuning. I have my hesitations though.

    I'm wondering how much of Ohlins technology/quality has been left behind with Cane Creek? They co-developed (and mfg?) the original CCDB coil to much success, but I'm wondering if they are still involved? Having the Ohlins-name to back up this new shock would be very impressive.

    I'm also thinking back to the Progressive 5th Element shock, and it's initial release. They couldn't make them fast enough, with massive amounts of positive praise and press. Their innovative damping circuit was the end-all be-all, and was OEM on most of the bikes at that time. Ultimately, they had a VERY high failure rate, massive amounts of warranty returns, thus pulling them out of the MTB market in under 3 years. However, other shock mfg's are using the damping characteristics of the 5th Element with more success & reliability now.

    I wonder what we will think of this release in 3 to 5 years.

    As I said earlier, time will tell. Right now, all we have is speculation. I have forgotten the count; so many new suspension releases, both fork and shock, were heralded as to be so revolutionary that they were revered like they were the second coming of Christ. The first fox 36 fork. The fox dhx-air. The progressive 5th element shock. The early CCDB coil (before they opened up the high speed circuits). The Roco air shocks. Etc.

    Time will tell.

    Francois congrats on your 18,000 post! big ups to MTBR

    On a side note, this shock may be in the cards next year (hopefully after I get a raise!). I'm no weight weenie so a 3 ounce jump from my fox float ctd doesn't seem like a bad trade off if it lives up to the hype on the descents.

    I'm stoked at where they're trying to go with this type of shock. Hopefully it breeds some healthy competition... right now it fulfills a niche that fox and rock shox hasn't really touched yet.

    ...and that's why I don't really read the MTBR site reviews...

    Yes, that was a good overview of the shock. I have to agree with the earlier post about the utter uselessness of the MTBR reviews and overall content on the site. It's basically a PR/clickbait site for the manufacturers. The forums are filled with folks who care and have useful info to share, but the "gear reviews" have grown so tiresome. Reminds me of Mountain Bike Action at it's worst.

    As for the Inline shock... Sure, it looks good. Can CC make crap? Sure, the stuff they farm out is not nearly same quality as the stuff they make in-house. Look at the 40 headset vs the 110.

    Fingers crossed, it'd be nice to have an aftermarket option other than the Monarch.
    Well, looks like that the Trance 27.5 isnt available anymore on their fit finder.

    Yep, vague reviews that don't go specifically into why they are better than product x, y and z are useless. Unless they are talking about the specific damping traits compared against some worse and possibly better products, it's impossible to gain any useful information. Compare against CCDB or avy-woodie and DHX-air and then make comments about how it's high and low speed damping circuits work, how it sucks up sharp edged bumps compared to these, how it works in repetitive high speed chatter like these, how the mid-stroke support is comparatively or resistance to g-out forces, etc. Unless we have some baselines to compare against, it's usually useless information...

    I have one on order as well, mid July to early Aug is eta.

    I will put it thru its paces I assure you. I am about 240lbs kitted up. It's going on my single pivot Shova ST. I ride east coast so no super long descents, but it's nasty down here so it will be tested on muddy root laced rocky terrain with by big arse sitting on it I'm no pro reviewer, but I can hack w the best of them. I'll take it up to Windrock a few times as well to really work it.

    I just looked again, and the Trance 27.5 is listed on the fit list, under Trance (all 27.5 models).

    This is what I hope I will get for my Trance SX.

    Sorry for the late reply, but the answer is yes! CC went with 15mm shock eyelets on the Inline (measured with bushings out).

    Going to be the 10th of August until I get my hands on it as I have ordered it from the USA and I have to collect it. If its anything like my DBA CS on my Nomad it will be incredible! That is the best shock I have ever had my hands on.
