Hey fellow MEATheads,
Any of you dual-squish riding folks have any experience with the OPT/DROPT remote for the Cane Creek Inline shocks? The concept really appeals to me, but I’m having a hard time plunking down another $100 and adding a cable for it given how little information I’ve been able to find.
I've always been of the mind that I wanted a FS bike that worked great without touching the shock. So I haven't bothered with a remote.
It's an interesting one, because a few manufacturing members of Team All-The-Anti-Squat have arguably gone so far now that their bikes feel like the shock is on CLIMB mode all the time - up and down.
The one thing I'd say is that I used my climb switch regularly with a Cane Creek Double Barrel CS but I never use it with the Inline and that's on the same bike. For longer and especially more technical climbs I love the CCDB CS because it retards both the compression and rebound circuit so the bike pedals in a pocket of sorts but it still delivers all the traction. With the Inline the Climb Switch is just affecting the compression circuit so it rides more like everyone else's platform. That is to say, I'll use it on the road but on the trail, I never touch it.
It's sort of funny to me because, again same suspension platform, I really like the Inline (Air) climbing and descending and don't miss platform adjustment at all.
