    What Rock Shox Monarch RT3 for a 2013 Anthem X29

    I think I am going to upgrade my rear shock from a Monarch RL to a Monarch RT# so I can get the middle platform setting. My RL has lockout but no "pro pedal or platform". Does anyone have access to the size as well as the tune I would need to get?

    6.5" eye to eye length, 1.5" stroke. Low rebound tune, medium compression

    LM tune will be very hard to find. You can have a MM tune reshimmed to LM though.

    I am finding that to be the case. What happens if I use a medium rebound medium compression?

    I actually traded my monarch out for a rp23 because I've had trouble with the monarch losing air pressure (sent back to RS twice now). The Fox I bought is medium rebound and it rides fine. You'll probably be okay with a MM tune

    Just have to use less rebound on your adjuster. Where do you have it now.

    I am running my rebound just about in the middle right now.
