Cloud 9?

Anybody run a Cane Creek Cloud 9 rear shock? Thinking of getting one for my bike, cane creek has a trade in program that knocks $100 off when you trade in your old shock. Plus the company is pretty close to my house so I'd be supporting a local business. The good, bad, and ugly on this shock would be appreciated. It would be going on a Jamis Dakar XC. thanks

If I had a FS bike, I'd get a Cloud 9. I'ver heard they are beyond sweet. One thing to note, the Cloud 9 doesn't use any Stable Platform / Pro Pedal valving. This means that your no-Horst-link-having Jamis may encounter some pedal bob.
