    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?

    Same performance at a lower price and weight?

    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.
