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.

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.

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

This shock is great. Mounting was easy, the instructions were helpful, and it's a big improvement on the stock shock it replaced. Be prepared to spend a lot of time fiddling with the adjustments and read the manual before you start.

If you want the best and prepared to understand how to set this up for your bike and riding style this is your shock. Fast email response from Cane Creek to all questions and good instructions for those prepared to learn how to set this shock up. You might as well have a cheaper and lighter shock if you can't commit to setting up correctly

Worth the upgrade!
This shock has transformed my bike (Knolly Endorphin). More plush, but way more controlled, especially over successive hits. I haven't even tried to tweak the settings too much and it still feels way better than the Fox CTD it replaced.

I think The Lounge (online support and social forum) is cool too.

NOTE: you do need to figure out not only size to fit your frame, but also which Cane Creek shock hardware will match your frame as well.

PROS: Highly Adjustable

Cane Creek DB Inline is Primo
I didn't think my Yeti SB66c could perform any better, until I installed the Cane Creek DB Inline! The shock is sublime, great on technical climbs and descents. Rear wheel sticks to the trail, without any pedal bob whatsoever. I set the sag and rode in Pisgah Forest, NC for a couple of very technical rides and found very little I would change in adjustments. The climb switch really makes a difference on climbing over rocks, roots and loose junk. Great addition to an already exceptional bike. Highly recommended.

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
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.
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.
