Eurobike 2015: Cane Creek DB Coil CS

by 1

 

Cane Creek have launched and end*ro specific coil shock with a climb switch. They told us that it made a lot of sense due to the way downhill and *cough* the E world are becoming more extreme in Europe, and that at first, they thought it’d be easy to just replace some gubbins in one of their other shocks. Finding that to not quite be the case, they redesigned a lot of what they knew to make this work optimally with existing 150 – 170mm frames.

There it is again!

And from afar. This is aimed at 150mm – 170mm bikes for doing that thing beginning with “E”.

They also had a not new air shock on a Canyon frame, lit alluringly in purple, but wanted to talk FAR more about the coil shock.

David started mountain biking in the 90’s, by which he means “Ineptly jumping a Saracen Kili Racer off anything available in a nearby industrial estate”. After growing up and living in some extremely flat places, David moved to Yorkshire specifically for the mountain biking. This felt like a horrible mistake at first, because the hills are so steep, but you get used to them pretty quickly.

Previously, David trifled with road and BMX, but mountain bikes always won. He’s most at peace battering down a rough trail, quietly fixing everything that does to a bike, or trying to figure out if that one click of compression damping has made things marginally better or worse. The inept jumping continues to this day.
