    And what do you base this opinion on, your own personal experience? Or media hype?
    There is a growing contingent of riders who have tried the ccdb and uncovered it's faults. It's foolish to think that this shock is the best simply based on marketing hype.

    The CCDB was developed by Ohlins one of the best suspension companies around motorycles. It is highly adjustable, very smooth, doesn't do anything funky (like spiking from DHX), and just does a really great job of keeping the tire on the ground.

Maybe getting a DHX pushed would even the field. I think a good comprimise would be the vivid but I don't have any extended amount of time on it, but they do feel pretty damn good.

    FWIW, i've owned a DHX, Romic, Avalanche and the CCDB. i currently run the CCDB and think it smokes the DHX and Romic in performance and adjustability. the Avy is definitely on par with the CCDB in the performance department. with either, i don't even notice that the back end of my bike is even there when railing the nastiest of terrains...

    they all feel pretty good when you are just sitting on them.
    It's when you bolt one onto your bike, and then actually ride it, that a comparison can be made.
