    2011 Scalpel 26" Fox RP23 w/ Boost Valve or Rock Shox Monarch RT3

    I just got my replacement frame and it came with the Fox. I also have the Monarch RT3 off the old frame, but must return one with the broken frame. Which would you keep and what is your logic behind it?

    Keep the Monarch

    The Monarch is head and shoulders better than the rp23 send it to push industries and get the best shock you could possibly use on your rush.
    Early to bed early to RIZE makes a man healthy, wealthy <(scratch that) and wize.

    I would keep rp23...
    If you have rush or rize, maybe go with rt3.

    Hi,

    I am new here...

    I have the same situation. Got a replacement 2011 frame but they took the shock from the Scalpel 100 (Fox Float RPL). Now I wonder if the Monarch Rp3 would be the better choice.

    Hence I am looking for the right tune of the Monarch RP3 real shock (it is never mentioned what the "cutom tune" is all about.

    Any infos?

    Cannondale recommends the Medium tune Monarch RT3 for the 2011-2012 80mm Scalpel frame.

    Hi,

    yes indeed, but there are shocks which are labelled: RT3 MM and others are labelled M H1 500

    The question is what is the difference and why are some models equipped with the one and some with other?

    Tech Question

    Good question that's probably one to ask Sram RockShox. Is there any difference in color or volumn between the two?
