    Cool-blue Rhythm Yet another evil temptation

    Thanks for pointing this out to me Jay - it's just what I didn't need to know. You realize that I am weak when it comes to bilngy shocks with lots of adjusters





    Nothing to see here.

    Damm you Double-S

    Damm you straight to heck!
    Have I not spent enough already?

    Okay, JNC you lab-rating this one?
    Choices choices, Push my DHX, CCDB, New Avy...I think the Rocco's off the radar unless I hear different.

    Man I'll be glad when the season's in full swing. UGI is a major low ride-time compensation.
    Faster is better, even when it's not.

    What SS, like you didn't know months ago this was coming? JNC has been waiting patiently, saving his nickels for this. Everyone will be off the back in a couple weeks! And you blew your wad on new wheels.

    Cool, so they finally got the kit done.

    Interesting that Avy's H/L speed mechanism is similar to the CCDB H/L mech. (i.e. needle valve & spring loaded poppet)

    Plus it makes the Avy only $50 less than a CDDB which has the hi/low rebound also.

    Can you say Kinko's!!

    This is a direct copy of the CCDB. It still doesn't give you, what I think, is the best tuning option and that is the low/high speed rebound. That has been what has made my CCDB feel like it sticks every landing, but still glues like taffy to small bumps. Go for the CCDB over the Avy!

    Fwiw!!

    The CCDB will be well worth your weight on that 6.6!! The CCDB has made a believer out of everyone that has ridden. Even Marz06 wasn't sure it was that much better until he rode it on his Demo 8, and now he is a believer.

    I agree. The range of adjustment is really awesome. I've since backed off of the high speed compression back to factory setting and even increased the sag to just over 30% because the compression damping is so effective - I can't feel the bottom of this shock! (although I may be squishing the bumper, I don't know, but who cares - the thing is built for it). If you turn it up you will really feel the compression spike on small stuff - meaning the shock is now set up for the big hits. Amazingly effective.
    I didn't just drink the koolaid, I stuck my head in the punchbowl.

    ...I really do hope you're kidding . Craig has had the Hi/ Lo compression option since the inception of the MTN shocks...

    ...I know as many people who prefer the Avy to the CCDB as the contrary reports I have read on the boards....YEs, I have read your comparisons & personally think it to be a valving issue. Craig admittedly had a hard time backing away from the heavy shim valving he uses for longer travel rides & had to rethink the approach with the newest genre of "trail bike". He told me himself that was likely the case with your experience. Having had the experience of several Avy's on several designs over the years, I am fully confident he will deliver.

    By all accounts, the CC seems like a decent damper, no doubt. Reliability is still as of yet, unproven. At least with Avalanche I know what I am getting into...
