    CC DB inline for 5 spot?

    Hey,
    I ride a 2010 5 spot, wanting to upgrade the shock and fork. Was thinking of the new cane creek Db inline shock and wanted a Pike fork, but the frame will not take a tapered steerer. Currently have a fox rp23 and a RS lyrik u turn fork. What do you think?

    I have been happy with my DB Inline on my 5 Spot. Is a very nice upgrade. The only comment I can make about the fork is that the 2015 Fox 36 fork can be obtained with a straight steer tube. That would be a nice fork IMHO.

    Did you purchase your shock from CC or from Turner. I'm wondering if the ones from Turner are valved for their bikes.

    I thought only the 2012-2013 Spots could take a DB shock, no?
    On MTBR, the reputation is infamous.

    Your RP23 could be sent to Avalanche also, a much cheaper option. Works Components offers a 1 degree headset for 1 1/8 inch headtube. An Avalanche cartridge in the fork would really make it a nice package if he has one to fit.

    My understanding is that the DB inline will work with the 2010 and the new frames have a bent down tube that will accept the piggy back shock.

    I'll check out Avalanche for options, as well as Push.

    It's always fun to get some new parts/ technology for the ride

    I've also been thinking of upgrading to a db-inline. I have a 2011 5-spot small frame. According to cane creeks website the db-inline won't fit. Poloarflux, what year is your frame, did you have any problems getting the shock to fit? What do you like about the shock?
