9Point8, please bring these 175 and 200mm droppers to the market! Vecnum Moveloc is somehow struggling production-availability. With 180/84cm tall/inseam I would buy a 175mm dropper in a minute!
- Please make them available for 30,9mm seattube-diameters, too!
- Please make them available in Europe, too!
:-)

Sorry - posted in the "wrong" review :-/
@NAYR: Ah ok! Well, I´ve heard/read really good things about the Float X so far. I personally was very pleased with the Manitou Evolver on the Spitfire. As far as I know the Swinger (Expert?) is pretty much a new Evolver-ISX6. So maybe you´re better off with one of these!

Uhmmm, not really sure ...
I´m running a Schwalbe HansDampf 2.25, the slightly smaller (but still relatively big) brother of the HD 2.35 in the 650B dropouts. Tire-clearance in the neutral setting is around 7mm from the middle square brace. With a HighRoller II 2.4 the fit could be pretty tight, especially in the neutral and steep setting. Maybe a HighRoller II 2.3 can be the Ticket? These ones are on my list for the next Tires. Don´t know about the Ardent, sorry ...

Wanted to ask how the tire clearance with running 650b in 26 inch dropouts on the Spitty; Do you know if you could fit a Maxxis Ardent or High Roller II 27.5x2.4? Thanks.

Unfortunately the closest Banshee dealer is 339 miles away..... and I don't know of a single soul locally that has a Banshee either.

Hmmm ... tough to say ...
I´ve heard/read reports from Rune-Riders that the CS-Version tends to use more mid-stroke and travel overall than usual. For the most this problem was solved with adding volume-reducer-spacers that you get with the CCDB. So far the Spitty/CCDB-CS riders seem to have less trouble with that?!? At least from what I can read in several boards ...
All I can say that my regular CCDB runs flawless and great, so it´s definitely not a KS-Link problem. Sorry, don´t know about the Float CTD or Float X ...
Any chance to demoride a Spitfire with CCDB-CS?

Yes, I´ve read that the Float CTD shock sometimes doesn´t work properly on both Rune and Spitfire. My CCDB is a regular from 2013 (no VX and no CS) and as far as Iknow these are more progressive than the VX or CS-versions, which may require some additional air-volumereducer-spacers to get more progression in mid- and end-stroke. So my CCDB does an amazing job on the Spitfire, as did the Manitou Evolver. Get a Float X or Swinger when money allows!

If your budget allows for an upgrade, than go with a different shock, Fox Float X, CCDB-Air, Manitou Swinger, or a used Manitou Evolver-ISX.
I started with an Evolver while the CCDB was not available and had pretty good results. Same with the CCDB, which has no Climb Switch, but works fine with a little tuning the Base-Tune to your liking. Get a different shock! ;-)

Riding a Deville and I´m very pleased! The good thing about BOS is still easy adjustment/setup for Joe Average Riders like me. The fork came factory-pre-tuned, just the right air-pressure and performance was amazing out of the box.
Would likely upgrade to a Kirk in the rear.
