    Coil Shock?

    Does anybody run a coil (like a DHX or Van, etc.) on their XCL?

    If so, how's it work? Do you like it?

    I know Ted has a Cane Creek Double Barrel on his XCL and he loves it.

    I think most people on XCLs are more likely to stick to air shocks due to the weight savings, so you might not see too many out there.

    I havent seen anyone with one in person, but that would be great if not for the weight. My bike came in at 33.5 Ibs using a DHX air and Pike coil fork. Hopefully this extra weight pays off when it comes to the durability part.

    Someone is currently trying to talk me into an EVO.

    Oh really? Tell me more. It's a heavy and pricey shock, but it looks like The Answer for those of us not satisfied with the DHX Air.

    Chucko, you should take a look at the Roco TST coil as well. It is a killer shock. EZ to adjust and uber plush. I use it on my big bike and I love it. Plus, even with a Ti spring it's cheaper than the CCDB...and PUSH serviceable.

    Dubjay and I spun around on it the other day. Mostly pavement and grass. My one comment: supple and smooooooth compared to the DHX A for the low speed stuff. I think he had a Ti spring on it, too.
