Cane Creek CCDB Air XV "better than new" 8.5x2.5

$340 GPB
UPDATE: Size of the shock is 8.5x2.5 or 216x63 in other money. New bike has a different shock length so I won't be fitting this shock :( This shock was fitted to my TR250 until it suddenly died whilst riding one day. Sounds bad, but it went back to TF Tuned after I spoke to Cane Creek and all the work was done under warranty. It had near enough everything replaced and was then lovingly rebuilt. It hasn't been fitted to a bike since coming back from TF Tuned (I have the invoice from them too). This is what was replaced by TF: DBAir Piston DBAir Outer Damper Tube DBAir Inner Air Can Reservoir Tube Norglide Bushings Why "better than new"? When I phoned TF to discuss what had gone wrong with the shock the mechanic explained that it had an older piston which was slightly thinner and weaker. Whilst he was explaining everything he'd replaced I said "so it's as good as new now" to which he replied "no, it's better than new because I've just lovingly rebuilt it by hand myself!". :) Photos to follow. Comes with adjustment tool

First Look: Renthal Fatbar Carbon
Except the sixc is (almost certainly) the bar which Enve benchmarked against and which broke in their tests. They didn't call it out but the implication was strong enough. See the comments on this thread: Should have added: Mtbr: How does 150 drops at max height compare to others? Jake: We tested a popular Brand A aluminum bar at 345 grams and a Brand B carbon bar from a competitor that was 785 wide and 225 grams. The Brand A aluminum bar at nearly 100 grams heavier bent to unrideable proportions after 40 or so drops. The Brand B competitor’s carbon bar broke at 32” or after 5 drops and never made max height. Would be interesting to see a test between the enve and the renthal. It's a shame people don't have testing rigs in their garages!

Do you have a spec list? What are the wheels? I want to get mine down to 32lb too! :)

Must Watch: Road Bike Freestyle
Is this whole trials on a road bike now a "thing"? If so, brilliant! Props to Martyn for starting the revolution and inspiring people to look beyond the accepted.
