Now Finished: Ask Us Anything with Cane Creek
I’ve been a big fan of your shocks for some time now, especially the IL and coil CS, but I would like to know a bit more about the Helm mk2 beyond the press release info. Are there any details around about the updates to the internals? I know the mk1 helm quite well so interested in how it compares

Video: Remi Gauvin Compares if Different Brake Pads Can Make You Faster
@remrem: nice work, good to see people actually testing things! It would definitely be good to try the same test with separate new rotors that have been bedded in with the pads they are going to be run with. The pads deposit material on to the rotor which helps friction so if you change compound the different materials won’t have as much friction

The Pinkbike Podcast: Episode 5 - Can You Trust Bike Reviews?
I accept you don't have too much brand bias, but what about personal biases and perceptions? I always read reviews with comments like fork "X" has very strong compression damping, or wheel "Y" has excellent vertical compliance, yet they have not measured these things they are making quite definite claims about. Have you ever considered proper blind testing, combined with incorporating actual data logging or dyno testing to verify those kinds of comments?

Super excited about this new line up! Do you have any plans for higher spring rates for the dhx2? There are several modern bikes being sold with coil shocks that have little to no spring options for riders ~100kg +

@jomacba: No problem, I didn't think you were dismissing it, I was questioning the need for the CM spring myself for a long time too. It does seem like a band-aid but to lower IFP force you really need to shrink the size of the shaft as well, which reduces durability. Twin tube shocks can be great (I love my CCDB) but they bring their own engineering and damping challenges

@RockShox: I have seen some pretty dirty oil come out of a charger 2 damper, which needs full disassembly to clean out properly

@RockShox: +1 to this, it is a situation I have encountered a number of times recently, especially on e-bikes and with coil shocks returning to OE it is becoming more common

@RockShox: Demand is high at my end I can tell you that

The countermeasure spring balances the internal IFP pressures, and does help with compliance on the trail. That breakaway force is more important on bigger bumps than you might think As for high speed compression that can be tuned easily by a competent suspension shop
