We had an interesting box arrive yesterday, Jonesy almost ran into the office when he saw it sat on his desk!
It turned out the mystery package contained a new shock from Cane Creek, its a revised version of the Double Barrel. The official release isn’t until Sea Otter but we can give you a sneak peak now. Here’s what the Double Barrel’s Product Manager, Malcolm Hadley, had to say:
The new Double Barrel will look almost the same as the current version but the internals have been updated allowing the largest tuning range ever offered in a shock (we are our only competition now anyway!). With this new version we will be able to cover a low leverage ratio bike say 2.3 up to a 3.67 ratio. A huge range, allowing riders to go where ever they want tuning wise all with only external adjustments. Very trick!
Your shock is Pre-production, there will still be some more changes to come on the bottom out bumper ,spring collar and spring clip. I wanted to give you hint of what we are doing here. (Things to come.)
Within hours of the shock arriving, Jones had it fitted on his Orange 5. Is this the Ultimate Trail Bike?????
Look out for more news as it happens!
