I recently purchased a Cane Creek Double Barrel to replace the Rock Shox Pearl 3.1 that my '08 El Guapo came with. You may remember a thread a couple weeks back asking for advice on that purchase.
Anyhow, I snagged the Double Barrel and when went to install it, I found that the mounting bushings are not the same size between the CCDB and the Pearl. I measured everything using my cheapo Kobalt vernier calipers and here is what I found:
The mounting hardware's outer diameter is 12.04mm
The Pearl's bushing inner diameter is 11.98mm
The CCDB's bushing inner diameter is 12.56mm.
You can see that the mounting hardware is really close to the pearls bushing size so it fits in the snugly. With that hardware, there is a bunch of play if I use it with the CCDB. So, my question is do I need new hardware, or new bushing for the Double Barrel? Where would I find this stuff?
Thanks for any help, I hope what I've described here makes sense.
