Its been done, and I wish by me, but I haven't found the part of my head to part with the $s quite yet. Feedback has been pretty universally positive....basically I don't recall seeing a single person bash it.
Look for the threads for people to "show off their SX Trail", and I recall at least one person who built one what a Fox 40 up front and CCDB in back...just might be the ultimate DH lite bike.

Actually, I'm about to have an 08 SX Trail with a CCDB on it with a Totem up front. A friend of mine named Chris Herndon rides for Specialized and Cane Creek and that is his set up. He races DH on it sometimes. It will come in around 34lbs. I'm coming off a Turner RFX with one on it. You will never want another shock once you buy one of these. Just so happens I'm a dealer so let me know if you are interested. PM Me

You've got an '08 SX Trail!?? Post a pic!

I didn't know they shipped them. I've got an '07 [loooove it], and some friends hunting for '08, so curious what it looks like.
How would you compare your RFX expereince to the SX Trail? I guess since you put a Totem on it its already a different experience because I don't think the RFX is meant to handle one.
I'm gonna get me one of those CCDB's on day. Just spend sooo much $s on my ride that I just want to keep riding for now.

Thanks,

Noice!!! That's the one I'm talkin' about. Sweet ride.
Curious - for your downhilling, what compression setting are you using? I know someone else who just got one and they opened up the low speed a lot from the way it came from the factory, while I've read many folks on here say that the factory settings are pretty close to ideal from the get go.

That is the best part about the shock.
You can tune it perfectly for each course.
I did a pedally race last weekend, and for that race I had the low speed turned up.
Yesterday, I rode Windrock which is a straight down super rocky mountain, and I had the low speed comp backed off some, and the rebound faster.
As far as stock settings, in general I run the everything a little more open that stock,
and then change it for where I am riding. Remember to get the lightest spring you can get away with and let the shock do its job. Its a great upgrade.

DLman - talk to Malcomb at Cane Creek. ITell him your weight and that you're considering one for a SX Trail and he'll recommend a spring weight. I've spoken with him, and met him at Sea Otter...seems great. He's very confident in his ability to pick the right springrate for you, and if you have particular concerns just talk through it. Good luck, and if you get it post pics and ride reports!
