    Warden coil shock?

    Hey there,

    I have a '16 Warden with a Cane Creek CCDB Air shock that needs a servicing.
    While it's away for it's sprinkling of fairy dust and such I'm wondering if a coil over shock would make a nice 'place-keeper?'

    I'm about 225lbs and I know setting up a coil is a bit more of a pain in trying to find to right coil stiffness, but I'm also thinking a simple "set it up, forget about it, and go" might better for me.

    I'm the type who doesn't spend a lot of time fussing around with high/low speed compressions etc, so the CCDB Air I have is most likely being underutilized by me. To those that like to do the 'ultimate' shock dialing I applaud you, but that's just not me.

    So, before making a long story longer: anybody have success with a coil over on their Warden, and if so, whatcha' using?

    Cheers,

    Mike

    I've got a CCDB Coil IL on my crbn wrdn and I love it. I was about 230lbs when I first got it and ran it with a 550lb spring. The thing was butter then and still is now, 2.5 years later with no service and more than a few miles. I haven't changed the settings too much since that initial setup, either. About all I'd do was slow down the rebound a few clicks for dh days, but then I ended up leaving it there haha. The bike does so well with that little shock on it, can't recommend it enough. I was mainly trail riding the bike, using it as a do-everything machine with dh days tossed in for good measure.

    We agree:

    The CC Coil IL shock is a phenomenal shock for the Warden platform

    Get that thing serviced, hombre! Seriously, if you send to CC directly for service, they'll run a dyno and tell you how clapped out it was. I felt the same about the one on my endorphin...and then got it renewed (at the 9mo mark to boot) and man, it was better than I had remembered!

    I would DEFINITELY like to know how clapped out it was, or is hahaha. A service certainly wouldn't hurt, that's for sure. Alas, I haven't touched the crbn since June when I got my hands on a Fugitive.

    I converted my CCDB Air CS, to coil, it was a little more expensive than service, but really happy with the results, think the coil really suits the Warden, i got the smashpot conversion at the same time, def heavier, but a whole lot more fun on the down
