19/07/2016 - handy new phone app from Cane Creek

We're probably more flexible than any one else when it comes to getting you the kind of shock that you want on your new bike. So, we try not to have favourites, and are willing to try and get the best out of any shock with a blindness to brand loyalty. We offer X-Fusion and Fox shox options with any bike/frame, and both have great things going for them... but we keep coming back to Cane Creek for the performance, feel, and tuneability their DBinline offers. We now fit it as standard to our Gold and Platinum builds... and you can also upgrade frames and Silver builds to fit one as well.

Now, the "tuneability" of the DBinline does put some people off, but fear not... start with a tune that we've worked out with Cane Creek, and tune from there. It's not that hard... and Cane Creek have just made it far more convenient...

There's a handy new app from the folks over at Cane Creek. You can use it to help tune your shock, and store different sets of shock settings. I've lost the bit of paper I had my shock settings written down on, so I for one welcome this. In the app, you can pull in helpful recommended settings to start you off AND follow some non nonsense help instructions to tune the shock more to your liking. You don't need to be an engineer or mechanic to understand or use it at all, it is very much aimed at us riders.

In Cane Creek's database you'll find the settings for Rocket26 and the current Rocket... I've texted Cy and he says that the Rocket275 settings are a great starting point for the RocketMAX as well.

As for the Flare... Paul is working on settings for that, but they're not yet in the database the App uses. If you're one of the first people to receive your Flare, and are using the DBinline, feel free to contact Paul for some base settings... or if you're a proper Geek, feel free to offer us feedback on the settings you've tried. We're always happy to hear from people...
