"Looks" & "feel" are 2 very different variables . I agree that the ccdb looks more refined, however...every one I have ridden has felt less refined than the Avy's I have owned over the years. If you like to tinker & tweak, that ability alone may sway you towards the ccdb. If you prefer someone else to custom tune your shock for you & you set/forget to simply enjoy a bombproof suspension setup, the Avy is the way to go. Another option would be the PUSH mx tuned Fox.
