    Cane Creek shocks for XCL?

    Hey Alan (or other Chumba folk), I would like to try either a Cloud 9 or a Double Barrel shock on my XCL. Have you folks done this yet? How did it work out? Thanks.

    I think Ted (Chumba frame designer and founder) has an XCL with a CCDB.

    CCDB would probably be great (would it be *not* great on any frame?), but the cloud nines don't have any platform to speak of....might be an issue.

    Platform's not much of an issue for me - I'm pretty good at pedaling circles.

    Platform is overrated.

    you know you have a well designed suspension when it pedals great with no platform to speak of, but when you flick the platform on it feels like total crap. the XCL with a CCDB sounds like it would give at least the new BLT2 a run for it's money on the trails, if not outright challenge the Nomad

    Someone buy me a CCDB and I'll compare it to my Nomad.

    Are you still running the DHX? How many clicks of pedal platform are you running on it if you are?

    I'm not quite that desperate, sorry. but if I were to get an XCL and spec it up with a CCDB I might just go out to your local trails and see how well it goes compared to your Nomad. hell, I might even let you ride it. as long as you don't mind either running Crank Brothers pedals or flats with traction pins

    Yep, still got the original DHX Air. I don't remember where the ProPedal is set, I might have left it wide open the last time I tweaked on it. I haven't found it to be a big deal for my riding style. I only notice bob when I'm pedaling out of the saddle.

    Have a CCDB on my Turner Highline and it has made a tremendous difference over the stock DX 5.0 coil that the frame came with. Saving $ to swap out the DX 5.0 air for a CCDB on my Evo. CCDB is very impressive.

    Ted has a CCDB on his XCL and he raves about it. I want one.
