    Default Shock Choice Question CB Riot

    because i have a problem, and am looking at that tempting sale on the CB website.

    what is the general consensus on the shock options, CC DB Air CS, DVO Topaz or DVO Jade.

    if it helps i weigh a decent amount and tend to abuse my bikes a fair bit.

    I had a Riot and used both the CCdba and Dvo topaz if your heavy id recommend the CC as its got way more tuneability.

    I had my Riot with the CCDB air CS and then a monarch plus. I preferred the monarch. The consensus over on MTBR is the Topaz, but I haven't ridden it. The Riot is an awesome ride, good luck!

    have you seen what their consensus of the Jade is? i think i saw a few posts about how the lack of a climb switch probably wasnt an issue, at the moment im tempted to just take the $250 discount and get a CC DB Coil CS

    You don't need a climb switch on the Riot. So I wouldn't worry about favoring the shock with a climb switch.

    I've only been off it a few months but already missing it :)
