    Any CC DB air cans on Asr5's out there? (Not Sb's)

    Just thinking it over and was looking for some input for an aggressive Asr5 build. (Google didn't return much info, nor did CC's site, "didn't recommend spring rate?)

    Thanks!
    I'd hit it, but I bruise like a peach.

    I know you posted this over thee weekend, yet did you ask CC if they know of anything? Its a good question as the wife has an ASR-5 and its RP23 may "need" replacing

    I fired off an email, but I'm sure they are home enjoying some much needed R&R. Maybe tomorrow I'll give them a ring, but in the meantime, I'd love to read/see how the rear of an Asr5 behaves with one.

    What size shock does the ASR5 use?

    It's a 7.875"x2"(50mm), but I'd throw on a 2.25" (57mm)and bump travel from127mm to 140 if I had to.

    This is not advisable, since the clearance of the tire to the seat tube could be affected. The 5 was designed around 127mm of travel, and I would expect that to be the limit before things start hitting each other.

    I measured before posting, and it shouldn't rub anymore than my Sb66 did.

    Also, on a side note: I just noticed, the Fox can spec'd on my Asr5's will support a 57mm stroke, but obviously is internally limited to 50mm.

    No but I happen to have a 7.875x2.25 CCDB Air shock on the Chilcotin that you could borrow to try out if you want to.

    Bumping an old thread- did the ccdb air clear the frame? I'm considering the new ccdb inline for my asr5, and really want it to work!
