The Cane Creek Double Barrel coil shock was one of the highlights of the show for some of us.  We wouldn’t have recognized this shock as a jewel if we hadn’t had the chance to ride it on the dirt at Bootleg Canyon.

The guys that run Cane Creek are great. They spent a lot of time setting up the Double Barrel for us at Dirt Demo which allowed us to seriously evaluate this shock.

Independent control of high and low speed compression and rebound. You can adjust this shock on the trail to accomodate different riding conditions.  This shock feels a lot better than the Fox DHX 5.0 shocks that most of us run on our dh rigs – of course it should for the price (msrp: $850 w/ ti spring, $650 /w steel)!

Eric and Randy evaluated the Intense 6.6 with the Cane Creek DB. They both have experience riding the 6.6 with a DHX 5.0 air so this was a great comparison. Randy thought so highly of the Double Barrel that he ordered one on the spot for his own 6.6.

The Double Barrel will probably be offered as a factory option on the new Intense M6.

Another great product from Cane Creek is the 110 Headset.  Definately gonna try one of these on my next new bike!
