    Awesome bikes, but so clean and still...
    Let's switch to action mode? :-)

    There a a number of really nicely done up Reigns, some with really nice wheels or pretty tricked out drivetrain, but not too many with shocks being changed out. Just curious to those that like to tinker and build up these bikes but keep the stock RP2 or RP23, how do you rate the suspension performance?

    I have had 3 Reigns, 2005, 2008, and currently a 2010 and have changed around shocks on the 2008 and 2010. Went from a RP2 to a RP23, then custom tuned RP23, then a Monach Plus RC3 and now a X-Fusion Vector Air HLR (still learning how to setup).

    For me and my riding style the Monarch felt much better than the RP2 or RP23. Both the RP23 and Monarch are limited with 3 compression settings, but the Monarch with the piggyback seems to be able to control the larger or sharper hit/bumps better.

    Now the couple of rides I have on the Vector it performs even better in this area over the Monarch, but due to the number of dials it is not quite as convenient to change settings as compared to the lever on the Monarch or RP23.

    So again curious as to how folks on here rate the performance of the rear suspension. I see the riding terrain and conditions are quite varied as could be shown from the very nice shot right about with marsupilami hitting what appears to be quite a sizable jump.

    I upgraded my rear sus performance quite a bit by going to a 2.25"-stroke Van-R coil shock. Upgraded it with a Zoke titanium spring a bit later. Way better than the stock DHX-4 air. YMMV.
