Thanks for the response!

I would love to buy it, but then I would have to be shipping the shock to Italy everytime it needs service...

I'm not in the mood to buy such an expensive shock and have to deal with those types of problems after the purchase...

Cheers

@Lucas_Myers Thanks for your insight, I'm actually looking for the DB Coils CS (non IL) as it is the only trunnion version from cane creek, but it might be very similar. And about the Ohlins, I doubt that the masters of suspension can make a coil shock ... more »

Cool! the curious part is that I thought that it would be the other way around. I thought the lockout on the TTX22 was more of a lockout and the DB Coil was more like a trail mode (less firm), more suited to technical climbs. Normally I have to make ... more »

Hey there! Bringing this topic back to life as I'm thinking about buying a coil shock for my 2018 Patrol. I recently installed the 2019 debonair spring on the Lyrik and it feels awesome, and now I'm thinking about buying a DB Coil Cs or an Ohlins ttx22. ... more »

The thing with the Aquila is that I can only find the DHC casing in their website! The FRC casing looks like a nice idea, and I also can't find it in skinwall option. I can only see the Ibex and the Citius in reasonable weights and skinwall. About Maxxis ... more »

Hey there! Time to change my tires as they have already taken a beating. I currently have a DHF up front and a DHR2 out back and like them, but I'm thinking about installing skinwall tires on the bike. The only brand with a decent offer of skinwall tires ... more »

So, for a 2018 Lyrik owner, would you recomend the Luftkappe or the 2019 air spring?

The problems were on previous versions of the Patrol mainly! That's why Transition made their frames so heavy!

People are starting to think their enduro bikes are made to ride bike parks and jumps that were dh and freeride bikes terrain, that's why they broke so many chainstays.

New bikes are beefier, but only time will tell if they hold it, I myself just received my Patrol and really like the SBG thing!

Added reply in a thread Coil forks. Yay or nay?! 11/30/2017 3:22 PM

^^This^^ My main concer with coil forks is that they may dive way more than air forks, increasing the chances of going OTB on steep sections. But of course they are unbeatable in terms of eliminating arm pump...

Added reply in a thread Coil forks. Yay or nay?! 11/30/2017 4:40 AM

I think that they will work fine with coil shocks. If you try to mix a coil fork with an air shock, I think the fork will always dive more than the shock, making the bike feel awkward. But that's just a guy that never tried a coil fork talking... It ... more »

Hey bud, the Maxxis 2.4 DHR WT next to the the standard 2.3 DHR is only a couple of mm wider in the carcass but the actual treads height is a little taller on the WT, I like how the WT 'bite in'

Any reason for chosing 25 inner width rims with WT tires?
