I guess when you have a good suspension design, you don't need a $600 crutch to make it betterLOL
Yeah, how do you get more than 110% Efficient?calvinstoney said:I guess when you have a good suspension design, you don't need a $600 crutch to make it betterLOL
I moved from a Push'd DHX to a CCDB on a linkage-actuated single pivot 6" bike.calvinstoney said:Agree CCDB gets some awesome reviews, but they also say that you have to really take the time to tweak it out. I just don't like all the adjustments. I would be lost with High and low speed compression and rebound. Most folks that I have seen absolutely love the shock have it on a VPP suspension bike, I guess it compensates for some of the bad things that happen on this design.
Actually, the DHX has the air-pressure adjustment, so it's back up to 4. Pressure, PP, BO, and rebound...CharacterZero said:I
If you aren't comfortable with 4 adjustments (HSC, LSC, HSR, LSR), then what are you going to do with the DHX (BO, PP, R) - that is ONLY one less adjustment?
I would tend to agree with you, but I just came from a PUSH'd DHX to the CCDB when I was told that they wouldn't be doing any more MX tunes (it was time to service my DHX).qbert2000 said:ccdb is nice but for the same or less you could get an elka stage 5 or an avalanche shock that's tuned for your bike, weight and riding style. better in pretty much every way. a shock that'sbuilt for you specifically will beat a ccdb any day.
The Avy does lack a HSR adjustment, but it most definitely has a LSR adjustment, and the knob most definitely controls LSR and not HSR. There isn't that huge overlap in the HSR/LSR circuts like there is with Fox products, which means when you adjust the rebound you are actually doing something that doesn't destroy the HSR action.CharacterZero said:Now, I understand the AVY is a kick ass shock, and if I could have found one for cheap, I woulda bought it, but both the AVY and the Elka lack HSR/LSR adjustment - they are both dependent upon a speed-sensitive shim for that distinction. Of course, they both have BO control which the CCDB doesn't have dedicated...so there are always trade offs.
