Cogent DDC emulator?

Has anyone tried these? Their website says that they fit 2004 - 2012, so I am assuming by 2012 they mean the 'Glee'.

I fitted the ddc and .85 springs lasr week. I did 1800km of road and some dirt road. I noticed a slight improvement in coping with square egde bumps at speed. Intructions are not 100% clear but I worked it out. Getting the spacers length correct was not as easy. They were not cut to length. I made a mistake so i used some pvc pipe in one side and the aluminium tube supplied on the other.

Nope. I thought about buying the Intiminators but didn't. I have yet to set sag at both ends. So it is not clear how much better the forks will be. Over rough ground they felt predictable which was all I wanted. Sure a few more inches of travel would be nice but at sensible speeds the front end did the job.

Yup. I've been running the Cogent DDCs/springs for a few months now and have been very pleased, though the stiffer springs were likely as much of a benefit as the DDCs themselves.
