    Mission shock options

    Looking to try some different shock options:
    1) Marzocchi Rocco Air RC
    2) Fox DHX Air 5.0
    3) or Coil Shock? No? I dont htink they will work just asking.

    I have used the Marzocchi in the past and liked it on my Kona Dawg, I have also used a DHX Coil but not the air...seeing some good pricing on new units for all these and wanted any feedback for people that have used them on the Mission.

    Was going to go Push but not sure at this point looking at options, would love to get an RS Monarch RT or RT AM to try out but it seems like only Push has them for sale.

    Any thoughts appreciated.

    I had a DHX air 5.0 on my 2009 mission, loved it! Much much better than the RP2 it came with, cant comment on the other options
    Still on training wheels

    Just picked up a RockShox Monarch RC3. I think it's one of the most versatile rear shocks out there, and it comes in a tune that's perfect for the Mission's leverage ratio.
