Swapping from CCDBC to CCDBA on an Alpine 160
the simplicity of air.
the complexity of a CCDB comes from its myriad damping adjustments not its choice of spring material? Have I missed something?
If its lighter weight your after (as per Enigma’s mate) spend the money you’d lose on the sale of the CCDBC on a (secondhand) Ti spring.
As you can probably guess, I have a CCDBC with ti spring on an Alpine 160 8) 🙂Posted 4 years agoeddSubscriber
For anyone interested I have a CCDB coil for sale from an Alpine. Only £260 but open to offers:

I originally emailed email@example.com, he’s the CCDB brand manager and has a spreadsheet/database of baseline settings. Cant remember what mine were (lost the email) but from his I added a few clicks of LSC to stop the “trapdooring” on slow rolling stuff and a bit of either HSC or HSR which cured a “flat rear tyre” feeling on fast downhill turns. Not a radical departure from their recommended though.
with all mygear on for riding i weigh in at 77kg and my spring rate is 2.50×400 is this correct for me? and how can i easly move the bottm out rubber stopper forward to see if i am getting enough travel? do you guys have a base tune for an alpine 160? hope you can help

That spring rate seems correct for that bike and your weight. If you can get the proper amount of sag (30-33%) with about 1-3 turns of preload then you should be golden. You can use a pick or a small screwdriver to slide the bottom-out bumper up the piston shaft.
As for a base tune, open all adjusters counter clockwise. Be careful with the low speed adjusters they have small clicks, when you get near the end of the adjustment range and you feel resistance stop.
Turn Adjusters clockwise
HSR- 1.0-1.75 turns in from all out. HSR controls the shock from the bottom of the stroke if you feel like you’re getting bucked add .25 clockwise till the feeling goes away.
LSR – 8-12 clicks in from all out
HSC – 1.5-2.0 turns in from all out. If too harsh and not reaching bottom open counter clockwise. Allowing the shock to get full stroke.
LSC – 10-15 clicks in from all out
Hope this helps!Posted 4 years agogodzillaMember
I is confused.
Im between spring rates and use the bike for different things its just easy for me to chuck a shock pump on, maybe im a bit lazy but it deffo feels like less faf.Posted 4 years ago
If you have an air seal problem you can fix it yourself as the air is easily user serviceable.
Pm’d you some base settings from TF OP.
