    Cane Creek DB inline

    Well the new DB inline has been out for a while now.

    1. Who has put one on their Carbine?
    2. What are your shock settings?
    3. Anybody at Intense Cycles riding one? Any input?

    Thanks

    I have been doing some research on it and I am curious to see how much ofa difference it would make compared to the stock RP23 on my Carbine.

    It's a fairly big difference from most factory medium compression tune Fox and RS shocks. I'm running one on my Spider 29 and love it. You can run way less compression dampening on the LS side for bump compliance and also less on the HSC depending on the type of riding and drops to flat you ride. My bike feels so much more lively with the Inline that it feels like a new bike. I did also upgrade to the Pike 140 RTC3 fork also so that's part of it for my bike.

    Same. I'm in LOVE with mine on the Carbine 29. Took the base tune and backed both LSC and HSC out. The bike is super compliant and the VPP suspension has enough so it still pedals well. Great rebound and control over successive rock hits, yet still recovers for jumps. I really really like it.

    A LOTS, Generously brought to you by. High Speed adjustment.
    My Fox CTD was perfect in one situation, The Inline is in all.

    Do you find it does anything for pedal efficiency as well?

    What bike do you ride? On my VPP Spider it doesn't really need a pedaling platform as that's built into the suspension so I run the LSC fairly open but there is a big range of LSC adjustment. I do use the climb switch on longer road type climbs though.
    Function in disaster, finish in style.

    Im on the Carbine 650B.
    I just dont want to loose the peddling efficiency I already have with the RP23 for DH and jumping gains.

    Does the climb mode lock the shock completely out?

    Carbine owner here, how do you adjust your slow rebound ? For me I used fast rebound (8) but if I open up the compression to get a ''perfect plushess'' (7-8)
    I feel my rebound setup dont get along well with the light damping setup.

    From Cane Creek forum:

    No, the adjustment for the "ON" position of the CS switch is fixed and not changed by where your low speed setting are set. That said, your low speed settings can determine how obvious the change in damping is. For example, if your low speed settings are set with a lot of damping, say 17 clicks, the ON position won't be a huge change from OFF. However if your low speed settings are very open, say 5 clicks, there will be a big jump in damping with CS ON.

    As cadoretteboat stated the CS is not a lockout. It increases both LSC and LSR to a preset amount. It is also infinite in its setting not just on/ off. I have my LSC set at 6 and LSR at 7 which is fairly open and fast so the CS can make a big change to those parameters when you use it.

    I run LSC 6 and LSR at 7 which works great on my Spider for my style of riding.
