    rear shock question.
    i have a 2009 meta 6 and what is the suspension ratio. is it a low, med, or high? i ask because i was looking at upgrading my rear shock and it asked what is the ratio on the rear suspension.

    If your talking about the leverage ratio the Meta 6 goes from about 2.7 to 2.55 which I'm guessing is broadly speaking a med ratio. If your looking at the Rock shox monarch chart it's very generic and doesn't take in to count many factors. I run a L tune RT3 and it works for me. The Monarchs tend to be overdamped in compression so the L tune smooths it out on trail chunder. The Meta 6 has plenty of antisquat so doesn't need a higher comp tune to stop pedal bob.

    not intending to hijack the OP...but my question is related.
    i recently purchased a 2012 META AM2 and it uses the 7.875 x 2.25 rear shock length and stroke.
    I need a shock and was looking at the fox float CTD in a medium tune, but was thinking maybe going with the low.
    I hate firm riding platforms.
    Based on info I found...if I take the 6" travel and divide by the 2.25" stroke it = 2.66. The info states this is a medium platform ratio.
    Any thoughts?

    thanks in advance.
