Before installing and using your new rear shock, carefully read this owner’s manual to learn the correct installation and adjustment procedures of the shock.

WARNING Improperly installed and/or adjusted shocks can cause serious harm or death and may severely damage your bike.

WARNING A broken or malfunctioning shock may cause loss of vehicle control and result in SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH. If the shock ever loses oil, air or makes unusual noises, stop riding and have the shock inspected by a Cane Creek Authorized Suspension Service Center or call the Cane Creek Customer Service Team.

WARNING Modification, improper service or use of aftermarket replacement parts voids the warranty and may cause the shock to malfunction, resulting in loss of vehicle control and SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH.

Do not modify your bike frame or shock. Use only genuine Cane Creek Double Barrel parts.

Follow service maintenance recommendations.

Shock service should be performed by Cane Creek Cycling Components or a Cane Creek Authorized Suspension Service Center. Visit www.canecreek.

com or contact us at 800-234-2725 to locate a Cane Creek Authorized Suspension Service Center.

SAFETY WARNINGS 4 WARNING Cane Creek rear shocks contain a nitrogencharge in the reservoir. Opening a nitrogen pressurized shock is dangerous and can result in SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH. The shock should only be opened by a Cane Creek Authorized Suspension Service Center.

WARNING Cane Creek rear shocks are manufactured exclusively for the bike model for which they are ordered. Switching units between different bikes may not only decrease the shocks performance but might also cause damage to the bike and can result in SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH. Always contact Cane Creek or Cane Creek Authorized Suspension Service Center to verify compatibility before switching a shock from one bike to another.

WARNING Any improper servicing procedure with a Cane Creek shock with “stuck down” condition can lead to SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH. Contact Cane Creek or an Authorized Suspension Service Center for repair.

SAFETY WARNINGS 5 WARNING Never attempt to pull apart, open, disassemble or service a Cane Creek shock that is in a stuck down position. Stuck down is a result of a failure of the dynamic air seal (located between the positive and negative air chambers within the shock sleeve) that causes the negative chamber to retain a higher air pressure than the positive chamber. To determine if

a shock is stuck down:

a. Deflate the shock completely.

b. If the shock body retracts into the air sleeve to a nearly bottomed-out position after the air is released from the positive air chamber, attach an air pump and inflate the shock to 200 psi (13.8 bar).

c. If the shock does not fully extend, it is in a stuck down condition.

WARNING When backing-out your Low Speed When backing out your Low Speed adjuster, BE adjuster, BE CAREFUL NOT TO CAREFUL NOT When you feel OVER-TORQUE. TO OVER-TORQUE. When you feel resistance- - STOP. You won’t feel a hard stop, you resistance STOP. Turning further will feel resistance. Turning farther WILL DAMAGE



INSTALLATION 6 Installation - All shocks Mounting Hardware – Your Cane Creek rear shock is equipped with exclusive high-performance, lowfriction bushings and comes with mounting hardware specific to your bike’s frame specifications.

–  –  –

over axle in the order below.

3 Install both mounting bolts before tightening either bolt.

Then torque the mounting bolts to the frame manufacturer’s suggested specification.

–  –  –

Check Frame & Shock Clearance Before your first ride it is important to verify fitment by following the steps below.

1 Remove air by pressing air valve.

2 Carefully cycle shock through full travel checking for any frame interference.

If there is any impediment, see canecreek.com or contact Customer Service.

–  –  –

Tuning Air Volume As an additional tuning tool, the spring rate of your air shock can be adjusted using the included air volume spacers (see Anatomy chart on pages 8-11).

This is independent of the air pressure adjustment. Air pressure should be used to achieve the correct sag value (see Base Tune, Tuning Field Guide, or canecreek.com). If the bike bottoms out harshly or too frequently, an air volume spacer can control how progressive the shock is.

More air volume spacers will provide a more progressive air spring. A more progressive spring will prevent harsh bottom-outs, since the spring will be “stiffer” as the bike gets closer to full travel.

Fewer air volume spacers will provide a more linear (less progressive) air spring. A less progressive air spring will make it easier to use the full travel of the bike.

AIR VOLUME ADJUSTMENT 17 As air volume spacers are added to make the air spring more progressive, adding additional High Speed Rebound (HSR) will keep the bike from “bucking”. A good rule of thumb is 1/4 turn of additional HSR for each large volume spacer added.

–  –  –

4 Place end eyelet of shock in vise with padded jaws.

AIR VOLUME ADJUSTMENT 19 5 Mount rubber strap wrench.

Twist while pushing down to remove air can.

6 Remove shock from vise and slide air can off the end of the shock.

7 Remove the inner o-ring.

–  –  –

Double Barrel CS is a selectable climbing mode on Cane Creek shocks that allows you to retain the advantages of a fully-suspended bike while climbing, without unwanted suspension motion. The Climb Switch changes the low speed damping in one simple switch, to optimize suspension dynamics during climbing. When you are ready to descend, flip the CS lever and the shock returns to its externally-adjustable low-speed circuits.

Climb Switch Activation - DBinline

Frame & Shock Clearance: DBCoil Before your first ride it is important to verify fitment by following the steps below.

1 Remove spring from the shock (see instructions on next page).

2 Carefully cycle shock through full travel checking for free movement without restriction.

–  –  –

Spring Selection & Installation Spring Selection Selecting the appropriate spring rate is an important variable in achieving optimal set-up of the DBcoil. Your ideal spring rate will be based on rider weight, frame design, and riding style. (See our online calculator at canecreek.com or call the Cane Creek Service Team).

WARNING Riding on a spring that is not appropriate for your body weight can cause SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH and damage to the bike and shock.

Spring Removal and Installation To remove the spring, turn the spring adjustment nut until it touches the cylinder head. Remove spring clip from shock. Once the clip is removed, slide the spring off the shock. On frames with long mounting axles, it will be necessary to remove the mounting axle before the spring can be removed.

–  –  –

Setting Sag - DBCoil Preload affects the energy in the spring.

IMPORTANT If less than 1 turn of preload is needed to achieve proper sag, you will need to change to a lower spring rate. If more than 6 turns of preload are needed to achieve proper sag, you will need to change to a stiffer (higher rate) spring.

Increasing Spring Preload Increasing the preload will increase the ride height and reduce sag. To increase the preload on your spring, turn the Spring Adjustment Nut clockwise (no more than six turns).

Reducing Spring Preload Reducing the preload will decrease the ride height and increase sag. To reduce the preload on your spring, turn the Spring Adjustment Nut counter-clockwise (no less than one turn).

SAG ADJUSTMENT 26 Setting Sag - DBCoil

Service, Maintenance, and Cleaning Cane Creek Double Barrel rear shocks are designed for long-term durability, though some simple maintenance steps can ensure long life and smooth function. If you ride in extreme weather conditions, the service intervals should be more frequent.

Service should only be performed by a Cane Creek Authorized Service Center. Visit www.canecreek.com or call the Cane Creek Customer Service Team at 800-234-2725 to locate a service center near you.


Do not use compressed air to clean any Double Barrel shock.

Do not use any solvents or de-greasers, as these products can damage the shock’s exterior finish or its anodized parts.

Do not spray water directly at any seal.

Never use a high-pressure washer on your rear shock.

Before every ride, check that the mounting hardware is tight and ensure there is no play between the mounting bushings and the mounting hardware.

If there is movement, you may need to replace your shock bushings.

To replace shock bushings, a Cane Creek bushing replacement tool kit (DBT024) is required.

This can also be performed by your bike dealer or Cane Creek Authorized Service Center. Using a non-Cane Creek bushing replacement tool will damage your shock.

SERVICE + MAINTENANCE 28 For cleaning, use mild soapy water, a very light pressure water spray to rinse, and wipe dry with a clean, dry cloth.

–  –  –

Inspect external air sealing surfaces for scratches, dents X or other damage.

Inspect and clean air valve threads to prevent dirt from en- X tering air spring during inflation.
