    Default Sight C7.2

    Soooo, a few weeks back i was asking for feedback on a Stumpy 29er, nek minute, bought this! I've come off a 2011 Cube Stereo and honestly can't believe how much better the Norco rides. Technology has obviously come a long way, because this thing [email protected] rips! It does EVERYTHING better. Think I'll start a new thread soon (or search the archives to keep the peace) about getting the DB Inline dialed, as i just can't find the sweet spot. Anyway, I'm in love with this thing.

    2 of my mates ride sight carbons. They are a very fun bike to ride.
    As for the db IL, check out the base tune on the CC website and also the forum. Heaps of info on there regarding tunes.

    Fun is right! It practically begs you to ride harder/faster. It's a bit of a handful at times keeping it straight! One very small gripe so far, is the Guides are very "Off or on" nowhere near as much modulation as the XT's I've come from. I'm running the base/standard settings on the DB, but am finding while seated it bucks me out of the saddle at times, so not 100% sure how to rectify that so far. Apart from that, the shock feels great at the factory setting.

    Dial in some HSR damping. Only half a turn or so to start.
    The CCDB is an awesome shock but you gotta take the time to understand what each adjustment does. The CC tune app is also really good, it takes you on a step by step guide to tune it!

    I'll try the HSR, I've been playing with the LSR with no luck. Yeah, that app seems awesome, just gotta put aside an arvo to play with it and get everything dialed in. Thanks for the info!

    I'm on the carbon Range with the CC DB CS and have come up with a slight variation on the (excellent) base settings from the CC lounge (website) that is totally working for me:

    HSC 1 turn
    LSC 3 clicks
    HSR 2 turns
    LSR 5 clicks

    Obviously this is a DB rather than inline, but having the LSR really fast and the HSR quite slow seems to work super well. I reckon HSC/LSC is more dependent on rider weight; I'm only 75kg kitted up, so running not that much - just enough to allow it to bottom on really big hits, but not on every run.
    safreek: if I want an arse pounding I will go to the correct toilet block

    It seems that HSC/LSC needs ROUGHLY double the rebound to be a nice setting? Might be a stupid question/comment, but im learning, and definitely no rocket scientist as it seems you need to be to get these things sorted. Im stalking around at 102kg, so my settings may be quite a bit different. Also, are the Inlines renowned for using all of the travel in general trail conditions?? I'm running 220psi, and the o ring is ALWAYS at the top of the travel, even with no big hits. Sag etc is spot on, BTW.

    You definitely shouldn't be using all of the travel in general trail conditions. At your weight you need to dial up the HSC and LSC quite a bit if you have the correct sag. I'd ramp up the HSC before you start taking up the LSC as too much LSC can make it a bit harsh.

    Sweet, I'll try upping the HSC next ride (tomorrow fortunately!) Should that sort the seated bucking?

    I have the same bike, will hit 1 year ownership next week.

    I found the stock wheels and tyres heavy and sluggish, carbon rims (Nextie 26 ID) and lighter tyres made a huuuuge difference in acceleration out of corners and general "whippyness".

    Have had a real love hate relationship with the DBINLINE. It's been in 3 times under warranty but the last time got upgraded internals and is noticeably better. I found the stock tune great for bombing down fast sections with loads of chunk, but it tended to hug the trail and had no pop. It was also quite sluggish climbing. Volume reducers and slightly less sag helped here (I'm 92-95kg with gear). Also lots of fiddling with settings but I can't remember where my current settings are relative to the stock tune. Def worth sessioning a section of trail and follow the tuning guide to get it dialed. Main thing I found was to focus on one setting at a time and only make small adjustments.

    Very capable bike from pure XC riding (I've raced it XC!!) through to light enduro and anything in between. Mine was in its element in Derby a few weeks ago.
