Hi Lee, I have an 05 Enduro and want to upgrade to a coil shock, from the 5th Element Air. In particular I’m interested in the new Cane Creek Double Barrel shock. I was wondering through your contacts if you have heard any reports or tried this shock on the new Enduro frame.
Thanks in advance.
Chris tests the Double Barrel on his Demo 8 — Whistler A-Line style.
Speaking of contacts: Chris Herndon races and works for Cane Creek, and he lived in my basement for part of last summer.
He told me the Double Barrel is SUPER adjustable, and that it works on most bikes. He ran one on his Enduro from Sea Otter to June last year. And get this: When Cane Creek invited magazine editors to test the shock, they all rode ’05 Enduros.
So yes. The Double Barrel is a good match for the new Enduro.
