Cane Creek Double Barrel Shock, Worth the Cost?

Cane Creek Double Barrel Shock, Worth the Cost?

Post by Diablito on Sat Dec 17, 2011 8:30 am

I'm getting a frame of a friend and it has a crappy Fox vanilla rear shock on it that needs to be replaced. Initially I was just going to throw a Fox RC4 on there and call it good but I've heard that Cane Creek Double Barrel was a much better shock than the RC4. However the CCDB is a bit more expenisve than the RC4 and I'm wondering if it's worth it? Tell me what experience you've had with the CCDB, what you like about it and what you don't. Thanks.

I'll be testing out the ccdb on my Jedi today. I have used fox dhx and the Elma on my bike, so I'll let you know how they compare.

I like my ccdb. When set right, it erases the trail from under you, soaks up small and big hits nicely.

Peeves: you need that special tool to tweak the settings.

When you get it, use the stock settings first then go from there. I initially tried tweaking according to feel and i was underwhelmed. It wasn't until i set the stock settings that i truly felt how it should work

Jack, It is highly adjustable (pro and con). It is a shock you never hear anyone sending in to have pushed, so it's good right out of the box. I've ran them on all my bikes. Nothing compares in my book.

Like perf said, start in the neutral position and adjust according to terrain, I kept a little notebook of my settings based on what I was riding. It's a pain to set but the sensitivity is amazing... you can feel a difference in as little as one click.

thanks everyone, this is exactly the input I was looking for. After I get it I will ask for more input for tuning it.

Love my CCDB! Once it's "dialed in", you'll not go back to anything else. The factory guy; Malcolm, is always accessible for questions and concerns.
