    Monarch XX Lockout

    I just took possession of a 2013 Scalpel -1 with the Rockshock Monarch XX rear shock. It doesn't completely lock out like the lefty or the Climb mode on a Fox. It's slightly stiffer when closed than open. Is this normal? I called SRAM and they said Cannondale spec'd it this way. Before I swap it out for a Fox are there any tuning or adjustments that would work?

    It should lock out completely. Under normal pedaling it should feel almost like a hard tail. It will give when riding aggressively, I'm270lbs. Sounds like the shock needs to be serviced.

    I have a 2013 Monarch XX as well and today I noticed I get 30% drop when locked out. The lefty dropped very little.

    I have a 2013 scalpel 1 29 brand new.
    and the monarch has 2 modes open and platform, (but no lock out)

    Was told by Sram that is how it was design by Cannondale.

    I read somewhere else that they had to bleed the Loc cable. I wonder if that would cause the shock to not lock out completely?
