    New inline Double Barrel Cane Creek

    Outside of finding this new shock very interesting, I'm wondering if they will now make a remote option for the climb switch. Many manufacturers make remote switches for their non-piggyback shocks. If CC made a remote for the climb switch on this shock, I would bet it would fit the double barrel air CS as well. I live in the Midwest where we have lots of rolling hills. I would love to turn on my climb switch every time the trail points up. It is a big help. Reaching down into a small confined space every time I want to use it is a pain in the ass. Really hoping a remote is on the list of things to do for cane creek. Oh, and this new inline double barrel definitely looks sweet.

    already available for sale on cane creek's website. I'm sure it will be online shops pretty quickly.
    fill what's empty, empty what's full, and scratch where it itches.

    This really changes things. I spent forever looking for a shorter travel frame I could fit a CCDBAcs on.

    This really open up the choices for someone like me.

    Same here. In my case I wanted a shock with a full range of adjustments for rebound, compression, and all the other settings, which limits me to the CCDBA and other remote reservoir shocks. None of them fit in the frames I'm interested in without having half the dials blocked off, that is, if they fit in the first place. This makes things much easier for me.

    Wonder who will be specing this shock OEM. Should be interesting to see who has faith in their end user's ability to tune their own suspension.

    So when are we going to see a bladder or diaphragm in place of the IFP on the CCDB coil and air?

    I have to wonder if the CCDB inline has better performance than the air, because of the diaphragm, even with less oil volume. Very interesting shock.

    Bob!!! Good to hear from you!

    Yup, this one looks awesome. I wonder why they just didn't use a floating IFP like in the Romic, but the architecture must be different enough not to do it that way.

    For the Bronson I recommend the Double Barrel Air CS Bronson-specific, call Cane Creek and they'll let you know they have a special shock for that bike.

    You have more info on that? I've followed the threads on the DB Air CS and it's seems like people have mixed views on how well it works on the Bronson. What's the 'special' element involved?

    Well I sent Cane Creek a message about this Bronson specific shock and they've just directed me towards their shock fitter so looks like they're keeping pretty schtum!

    According to an article on VitalMTB - "It may also be hard to reach the Climb Switch on some frames. To address this, and to improve on-the-fly accessibility for all, Cane Creek will offer a bar-mounted CS remote later this year"
    So I think they have you covered there.

    I'd love this shock on my Mt Vision, but I'm still not sure whether it has enough clearance around the lower shock mount to fit the shock. I don't trust the fit thing on their website either, as when I put my bikes details in, it says that the DB coil with piggy back will fit, and it definately won't (you can't get any piggyback shock in there). I may have to flick them an email.
    I don't crash, I just have slightly uncontrolled dismounts!

    If you have space for the Debonair or CCDBA, why run the Inline vs the other two?

    Depends on your riding. I called them directly and spoke with them.

    My Lunchbox fits the piggy back. That said, 95% of my riding is local MD XC trails with 5-6 trips a year to east coast bike parks, so the runs aren't as long as out west.

    My understanding is the extra oil volume in the PB shocks combats heat on long downhill runs. Since I won't be encountering that, I decided to save some money, weight and get the same performance** for my riding.

    basically if you have those long ass downhill runs that last 10 or more minutes and you can fit a PB shock- use it.

    The Fit Finder thingy has been changing over the last couple days. First time I checked it said the Trance X shock was 7.5"x2" with no fit and now it's saying 6.5"x1.5". Maybe they just haven't got around to it yet?

    Fingers crossed, it'd be nice to have an aftermarket option other than the Monarch.

    This shock is good news for those that haven't the room (or travel) for a piggy back, but its far less "amazing" than what MTBR would have you believe. Looking at their "infomercial" dressed up as a "gear review", this pic made me laugh with its lame-o traditional / inline comparison



    Not so amazing now:

    While I agree that it may not be the best thing since sliced bread (remains to be seen), do you imply they are the same design?

    Not that the twin tube has not been made before (Romic used a twin tube since 2002?) but they are not the same thing.

    Yeah, all shocks are basically the same... piston, oil, space for oil displaced, separating membrane/IFP, gas. But implementation varies and so does performance.

    It will be released next month, and I would recommend giving them a call by then.

    I'm just pointing out that the MTBR light-beer informercial on the product has an image specifically calculated to make it look significantly different to the "traditional" design, but when you flip the image it is far more similar than the spin meisters would like you to believe. 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.

    So, the Magura shock had separate high, low speed compression and rebound adjusters, and a climbing switch that didn't affect each other when adjusted?

    So you guys who are ready to open your wallets and pre-order this shock; are you so willing despite any realworld rider reviews? No one knows jack-sheit about this shock. It could be a total P.O.S as far as anyone knows.
    Send me your money instead. You may get the same level of satisfaction.

    Based on the other DB shocks, I am not worried in the slightest about ordering one without pouring over reviews. I have a broken RP23 and I need to think if I want to get it rebuilt now for $150 (or more to Push it) or save up the scratch for this. Decisions...

    What's your point? Show me one thing in the "Review" that is actually reviewing anything and not just a cut and paste job from some CC promo material.

    As an aside, Magura shock does have separate HSC, LSC and rebound adjusters. No HSR or climbing switch, but it was definitely a "twin tube" design where damping oil flow is primarily related to shaft displacement and not piston valving.

    To repeat once again, I'm not bagging the shock. I think its great to see another option in short travel. BUT I am down on the whole "Gear Review" that's not actually a review.

    Thanks for clearing that up. It just proves that the new CC shock is a first of its kind. They don't have a shock to test yet. So, they posted what information they did have. Because of that, you and a lot of other people know about this shock. Which allows me and a lot of other people to start making plans to buy one. It's really something people should not be complaining about. But, you know some people just have to complain no matter what.

    It is a repackaged CCDBA-CS that is known to be one of the best mass marketed shocks out there, with the same damper. Is it really risky to assume the inline version is going to perform as well as the existing CC shocks? I do not think so. The biggest unknown is the new bladder design and its long term reliability. Here's where the CC reputation makes people believe they got it right.

    The Fox Float CTD is the most commonly specced and reviewed shock, and it's terrible. I trust my experience with the CCDBA-CS more than I trust someone I don't know. Half of the professional reviews that have come out have borderline silly statements in them.

    I imagine that the large number of manufacturers that are specing the new Inline on their frames right now are basing it on something beside reputation

    The float CTD is probably the most commonly spec'ed shock out there, and many people think it's a POS. Do those frame manufacturers know something we don't?

    This has to be one of the most ridiculous statements I have read in a while. Almost everyone I know consumes goods based on reputation of the brand. From cars, to components, to tools, to electronics, to bikes, to condoms.

    If the brand has proven its quality in the past, generally they will spend money on R&D to create more products to get more market share.

    Yes, this is a new product, but it is using a lot of proven technology, just repackaged. I am sure that the early adopters will be fine with shelling out $500 for this thing.

    I don't think it's ridiculous at all. For example, would you assume every new model of automobile from a single manufacturer is of the same good quality as the vehicle you purchased from them last year? Car manufacturers test their new vehicles for some amount of time before releasing them, yet after these models get in the hands of the consumer, sometimes that is when you start seeing the problems after enough time has passed. Why would it be any different with anything else you purchase, say, a new model rear shock?

    No offense renegade, but if we all took your advice there would be no user reviews out there. You should be applauding these people jumping in and spending their money on something so that we can get some feedback from real users, not paid advertisements.

    I would say(as would most sociologists) that is how the majority of people with liquid assets work. The entire car industry is built using this model.

    That is why they offer warranties, and generally use some existing technology/parts to keep % of failure down.

    Also, $500 is a much better risk/reward ratio, than say people buying even a low end new car like the BRZ.

    No offense taken. Yes, someone has to jump in and try the product. And I realize that manufacturers do really on brand loyalty to make a living, and sustain a bussiness.I have been burned enough times across many product lines that I try not to purchase by brand loyalty if I can afford to wait.

    I think you have to keep in mind we are talking about a very specific company, Cane Creek, which makes a very limited set of products, and up to this point, only a single suspension product (family) which is nearly universally regarded to be excellent if not the best in it's class. It's adding a new product to that family which uses very similar technology packaged in a different form factor. I don't think it's a huge leap to believe it's going to be a good product. There are likely to be bugs in the first version, but Cane Creek also has an excellent reputation for service.

    Hillharman, I realize that my comparing CC to an auto manufacturer is not at all an apples to apples comparison.The difference in this shock from CC is the bladder; this is new for them. Time will tell if they nailed it

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.

    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.

    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.

    After my first order with him and the amazing price on my CCDBAcs, I pretty much just email him first when I need something.
    Gave me a hell of a steal on my Fox 36.

    One time I needed something right away and he was honest enough to say his supplier didn't have it in and sent me links to two sites that had it in stock at a decent price, though not as good as his.

    Slightly curious what the weight of that size will be…CC only lists weight for smallest shock…and what it looks like on your new new bike. Considering replacing the CDTK on my Solo with either the Inline or RS Monarch RT3 Debonair.

    Having experience of a Debonair on my Nomad v a CC DBA CS I'd not bother buying a Debonair outright with my own cash, never got on with it.id rather have had a Float X as IMHO it's a nicer shock.

    Float X is IMHO a lovely shock. I really liked mine but the DBA has the ability to be tuned to my exact tune myself, the Float X I had Push tuned. The Float X is great though, I'd have mine on my Solo in a flash but it's not the right sort of bike for a piggyback shock.

    Universal Cycles has them in stock and what seems to be one of the best prices around $432. Ordered mine yesterday, it was shipped yesterday and is on route.

    I am really hoping it works as well as the hype around it.

    Let us know after the first ride, lots of us are anxiously awaiting to hear real user reviews. What frame are you putting it on?

    NB-that price is without mounts. I get mine direct from the factory and the mounts are properly pressed in by Cane Creek for the specific frame we are doing. Avoids mistakes and trouble. Just bolt on and ride!

    New inline Double Barrel Cane Creek

    Got a small ride in this afternoon. Set the sag and off I went with the factory base tune of 2, 7, 2, 10. It was a little too soft for my liking so I upped the LSC by 2 clicks to 9. The ride was a bit stiffer while keeping the same sag. Really happy so far. And because no one buys the magazine for the articles, here are some cheesy glamour shot pictures.New inline Double Barrel Cane Creek-imageuploadedbytapatalk1407279514.775510.jpgNew inline Double Barrel Cane Creek-imageuploadedbytapatalk1407279534.291808.jpg
