Cane Creek Double Barrel Inline Shock

Cane Creek DBinline Rear Shock

Cane Creek’s Double Barrel rear shocks have been a hit since day one, inspiring confidence with next-level adjustability and control. Originating as a piggybacked coil shock, later iterations included a piggybacked air-sprung model and then a piggybacked air-sprung model with a Climb Switch. Cane Creek has upped the ante once again by bringing the same damping characteristics of the DB shocks to the inline shock category, making it compatible with more frames than a traditional piggybacked rear shock.

Traditionally, piggybacked rear shocks are used for more aggressive riding styles. The piggyback reservoir allows for higher oil volumes, which improves the performance of the shock and significantly reduces shock fade. During use, the oil in a rear shock will begin to heat up which causes the oil to become much thinner. This lowers the damping rates, causing the bike to bounce around more as well as increasing the chance of bottoming out. By increasing the oil volume, it takes longer for the oil to heat up, which results in a more consistent and reliable damping system. Although the DBinline does not feature a piggyback reservoir, thanks to the Twin-Tube design it does use much more oil, about 37-48% more, than other inline rear shocks. This increase in oil volume directly improves the performance of the shock, allowing you to go bigger than before without the worry of bottoming out.

As with other Cane Creek shocks, the DBinline features 4-way external adjustment of high and low speed compression and rebound. By making these damping rates independently and externally adjustable, Cane Creek was able to produce a custom, rider-specific tuned rear shock with a plush and bottomless feel. Tune your shock to fit your bike, your trails, and your riding style.

The Climb Switch is a climbing feature made to enhance both pedaling-efficiency and rear-end traction by simultaneously adjusting both low-speed compression and low-speed rebound, resulting in one of the most innovative climbing features available. Where other rear shocks with climbing features only adjust the compression, the Cane Creek DBinline rear shock also adjusts the rebound damping which results in better traction while minimizing pedal-bob. The Climb Switch being a literal switch makes it easy to flip on or off; making that long treacherous climb more manageable with the flick of a switch!

Great shock for the money. Switched this out on my Transition Bandit and am in love. Cane Creek included a field tuning guide that you can take with you to help set up your tune. They also include air spring curve spacers that you can change on very easily if you have a shock pump.

Shock is a world of difference over the rp23 that came with my bike. I could never get the fox propedal to do anything. The cane creek climb switch works wonders, being able to adjust low speed compression also helps.

The big worry about the Inline is that it doesn't have a piggy back and the shock would fade on long descents. I've taken it to big bear a few times and have had no problems whatsoever.

Would recommend for everyone but weight weenies since this is a tad heavier compared to "similar" shocks. But you can't compare the performance to anything else in it's class.

PROS: Great Value, Climb Switch, Easy To Tune, Endless Adjustablity

Shock and Awe
First things first...this shock annihilates anything Fox has to offer. Perhaps you could get a Fox shock close, but it would need to be tuned to fit your needs. This shock is a MAJOR confidence booster...a game changer.

I installed the DBInline on my SC Bronson C. I was skeptical at first since I thought I would be monkeying with the settings trying to find a base set-up. I was WRONG...I set the sag and went out with stock settings. The shock was SO much better that I had no clue what to change! On the trail, it made small roots disappear. Gobs of grip for technical climbs. 4ft wall drops felt like landing on a stack of pillows. The pedal bob would be my only complaint, but you can fix this my adjusting the LSC adjustment. I prefer the mega plush-ness that allows you to plow over anything in your way over pedal efficiency.

After riding for 2 months, I did slightly tweak the settings after riding a section of trail over-and-over while trying different settings.

I am a little worried about servicing the shock. I was able to do seal changes on the Fox shocks but this shock might need to be sent back to cane creek for service.

PROS: Plush, Adjustable

Great adjustments in a small package!
I upgraded to the Inline shock from the CS Air. I wanted the performance of the CS Air without the extra weight. This shock meets the ticket! I ride it on regular trail rides, hitting rocks, jumps and climbs, but also use it on shuttle and lift access runs where things get a little gnarly.

PROS: Performance, Bling, Lightweight, Adjustability, Easy To Install, Attractive Design

BEST USES: Enduro, Mountain Biking, Upgrade

Installed on a Scott Spark 720... YES!!!
The Fox CTD Evo shock that came on my bike was usable at best. I mean, it worked. Having tuned motorcycle and car suspension in the past, I knew there was better out there and when this DB Inline shock went on sale, I knew I had to try it. Holy mother!! Running on the out-of-the-box base-line settings, the DB feels miles better than the Fox shock. I've only ridden it about 100 miles but so far so good. I've run it "locked out" and a lot at half lockout for singletrack with occasional rocks and roots. It really shines on these trails. I've also done some good fire road descents. I think I still have some tuning to do for bigger hits like ruts, ditches and water bars but for XC riding, it feels soooo good. Even the bigger hits get soaked up with ease. This is on a 4" travel bike. I think I just need to back off the high speed compression a bit to remedy G-out feels. Plush it up a bit. I am so happy with this shock!!

As an aside, I called cane creek to find out about the upgrade policy that they are currently offering. Why not? Oddly, they do not support this shock unless it came stock on your bike or they have tested and approved for your bike. So although this shock fits my Scott Spark 720, they will not upgrade me to the new DB Air (IL), which is supposed to be slightly more robust. I'm not even sure they will service it under warranty if I tell them the bike I used it on. It seems odd that this shock can be sold separately from a frameset if Cane Creek will not support it once they here how you used it. People are definitely going to buy this shock and use it where it works based on shock length and stroke alone, not just on bikes where is was spec'd from the factory. Anyway, I thought I would share.

Great Shock for the HD3
At such a great price, I bought the as a backup for the Inline on my HD3. No down time when I send it in for service, and a nice backup for the long road trips. I use the MojoHD3 tune from the CC website, with a couple extra clicks of low speed compression. NOTE: The shocks must sit on the shelf for a while, and need lubrication. Mine squeaked LOUD like a dying bird when first installed - liberal doses of Slick Honey for the first few rides did the trick. Smooth as butter and silent. 4 stars for the InLine in general, as it needs more maintenance than Fox - but I love the ride

Cane Creek DBinline
First I just want to say Jenson has not let me down since 2012 with the products it sells or the customer service. Here's what I posted on Cane Creeks site about the rear shock.

I have a Cannondale RZ140 1 Carbon and was about to sell the bike because of how it handled. Thought I would give it a shot and purchased the DBinline because of how much you can adjust and tune the rear shock. All I can say is wow!!! I fell back in love with my bike. Thank you guys for making a great product.

Great Shock on an intense carbine 29, upgrade from a rockshox rc3. One suggestion the stock settings are for non aggressive terrain. From the suggested settings i added all the air spacers, sped up the rebound and slowed down the compression. I weigh 150 lbs...

Highly tuneable shock
I purchased this shock for my Cannondale RZ120. The fit was spot on. While it has more adjustments than the shock it replaced, I found it easy to dial in following the included instructions. It has great small bump compliance and can be easily tuned to meet trail conditions. I have not had any quality isses with nearly two years of use.

Will I need to buy the Cane Creek rear shock mounting hardware or does the db inline come what I need to mount the shock to my 2014 Santa Cruz Bronson? I am replacing the stock Fox CTD.
SteveinMT on Apr 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You have to buy the mounting hardware separately , which for your Bronson is 22mm x 8mm (for both the top and bottom)
I've read numerous articles about reliability issues with the DBinline. Have the reliability issues been addressed? What kind of warranty do these shocks have?
TriStar on Feb 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: After putting over 2,500 miles and 500,000 feet of climbing the shock is still working like a charm
What year is this edition?
A shopper on Apr 23, 2017
Does it come with the hardware?
A shopper on Jan 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes. Here's a link: For my 2012 Tallboy LT, I had to purchase two rear shock hardware mounts, in this case, 22x8. I could not use the existing mounts (Fox RP23). It was pricey, but considering the reduced price of the shock and the resulting performance gain, it was well worth it.
Have an ibis mojo SLR would like to replace the rear with this.. Will it mount directly?
A shopper on Feb 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I put this on my Ibis Ripley. If I remember correctly I had to push out the bushing that came in pre-installed and also buy Cane Creek Rear Shock Hardware 21.8mm X 8mm; Item # RS246A00. Beyond that is was very easy to install. I also recommend you read up on the tuning for the mojo before installation, you may need to add or subtract volume spacers which require the shock to be un-installed.
I'm curious if this is the newest iteration of the shock with improved internals?
Nomad.66-Mark on May 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: That's a good question! I'd go to the Cane Creek website to figure it out.
I have the next to last version and I know there isn't too much difference.
Plus it's by far the best mod I've done to my bike. Hands down.
What shock hardware would I need for a 2013 yeti 575?
Hotwheels on May 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It looks like you need 8mm x 22mm for the front and 8mm x 7.5mm for the rear, but you may be able to swap your current hardware to the cane creek.
I have a 2008 Giant Reign X2. Will this fit?
A shopper on Feb 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Giant website bike archive should have shock eye to eye dimensions as well as bolt size info, both of which you will need to get the correct length shock and the correct spacers for mounting bosses on your frame. You could also measure your current setup and hardware yourself. Cane Creek website might also have this info. Besides some giant guru most bike people wouldn't know if it will fit.
I would like to upgrade rear shock on my scott spark 960 . Is this a good option ? Any feedback or sugestions
Mauro on May 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I can't comment on it's application to your bike but it improved my SC Tallboy suspension performance significantly. It does take some time and patience to setup so don't expect it to be bolt on and done. Small bump compliance, big hit control and pedaling efficiency are much improved over the Fox Float. It feels like it has less stiction, too.
I have a swork epic 2012 with a fox brain what CCDB would suit this bike
Brad on Oct 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Take a look at the CC website and/or mobile app -- they have a pretty decent fit guide that specifies best product and what hardware is required by bike.
What is the travel on this shock? I can't find it in the description.
