Cane Creek DB Inline whats the score
Phil /Chief, both things I had been considering, and I’m eering on the side that the INline is more suitable for me. (not least for Price)
Not sure I’ve got the option to change now (an order has gone in for the normal DBAirCS), and no idea how long it will take to get an Inline..
if the cost had been the same, I probably wouldn’t have been considering it. 😕Posted 3 years ago
I’ve been trying to dig around (including an email to CC), to understand the reason behind the INline version when it comes to price.
I’m about to get a new Spitfire with a CCDB AirCS, which comes in a £450 when bought with the frame (£500 without). Now CC have released the “Inline” at around the £360 mark..
No according to the blurb I can see, it’s supposed to be exactly the same as the non-inline, just slimmed down.. So why am I spending £100 more on an older model Shock??Posted 3 years ago
ooh, just had a nice mail of the Folks over at Cane Creek.
So the Inline, is it seems for a different type of riding, smaller travel bikes. The air volumes are different, though the Inline is still ahead in it’s class.
SO – The Spity is at the upper end of the Inline category, whereas the DBAir is well within its comfort zone..
Still doesn’t really address the cost issue, other than tooling, metal etc..Posted 3 years agoShackletonSubscriber
As the inline hasn’t been released you can’t really complain that the spitfire you want now doesn’t have one and won’t be an option until September!
The way I had it described to me is that they are for different riding styles. Riding a spitfire in the UK I’d be tempted by the inline, if I frequently strayed onto DH courses or spent a lot of time in the Alps the CCDBA would get the nod.
Just looking at the shocks the piggy back must add quite a lot in terms of manufacturing time and therefore cost. Plus CC may be pricing it more competitively as it is up against Monarchs and Float CTDs on shorter travel bikes where the weight of a CCDBA may be seen as more of an issue.Posted 3 years ago
