    Hey Matt - CCDBA sounds like a nice shock from what I've heard.... no lack of tuning options...

    Did you try playing with air pressure or damping settings much on the RC4 before swapping it out?

    Have only had a handful of rides on my HD to date and yet to get it dialled in, so before the suspension engineers attack, I'll note that mine is not really a representative experience to draw conclusions from....

    But in the interest of giving a further reference point, my first impressions from said shock:

    My RC4 is relatively under-sprung for my weight (350lb spring vs 100KG RTR) so I have compensated with ~175lb or so of air which sits at around 35% (?) sag at shaft. Came with an M tune on which I upped the rebound and low speed compression on a 'couple' of clicks from the original mid setting... scientific, yes?

    The bike does feel pretty neutral 'just bouncing on it' - ie not terribly lively but not bad either, and without the ramp up you describe even given the higher air pressure.

    First impressions on the trail are actually quite positive: it does feel a bit more lively on the trail than the front driveway and yet to feel like it's approaching bottoming on the milder stuff I've hit around town - up to 4ft drops, some big-ish ruts at speed...

    Presses and pops off jumps 'fine' as is, and does not feel like it's wallowing it its travel when climbing or sprinting with the air pressure and LSC set as it is- better than I would have expected considering the too-soft spring.

    That said I'm sure it will improve and feel more lively off jumps etc, once I do finally get the right spring weight on there, but it is plenty rideable as-is at the moment, and the bike has soaked up everything I've thrown at it thus far without complaint.

    Looking forward to having more of a play around with the setup over the holidays when I have time to dig out some of my old DHX springs out which might yield more meaningful data...

    Cheers

    Rico
    Thanks Rico. Appreciate the response.

    For the RC4 I backed the HSC and LSC to zero, set the boost valve to 135PSI, put bottom out to midway and same for rebound.

    FYI the spring is actually 500lb so pretty under sprung for someone at 118kg.

    Ie now emailed both Ibis and Cane Creek for their feedback so hopefully they will get back to me before the weekend.

    I know I really need to get the bike out for a ride but I'm awaiting a frame skin which will be much easier to apply when the bike is spotless.

    Haven't had a chance to hit the trail yet so I'll let you know after some ride and dialing in time. Just around the street it seems very smooth, even sagging a tiny bit under just the weight of the bike alone.

    The bike got its maiden shake down ride this afternoon 3hrs of summer evening blast, felt great, XX1 is amazing shifts so fast and you can take adantage of the dwl and hammer it, Im sure I was supposed to be running a 34t front ring but it has a 32t feels a bit small to me, would like to be riding a 34t but easy to change, then my ratios for my home riding should be sweet, the HD is so plush and ramps up very nicley towards the end of the stroke, for me even at 140 it slays my trails very impressive, am so loving the color combo looks stunning in person, defintiely draws attention not sure if thats a good thing or not, Im not worried about it just ride huh.

    Can't wait to get rid of that stupid front derailleur. Sadly my XX1 seems to come end of Jannuary only. Anyhow, the weather is as bad as can be (and in Germany that means its really awful) and final exams are ahead....

    Hi guys!

    Does anyone know if it is possible to use the bushings from Fox RP23 on a RS Monarch?
    I have just upgraded the rear shock on my Mojo SL from the Fox RP23 to the RS Monarch Plus…
    I haven't received the Monarch yet, but I am wondering if the fox bushings would fit on her…
    I use an Offset bushing, so I would like to maintain them on my frame…
    Thank you.

    Regards,

    Ed.

    5'11.5" Im usually in-between sizes and I like large frames longer wheelbases the Mojo just fits me well, it was a big factor in choosing the Ibis as well.
    Loving the bike so far still getting tuned in doing the fun bit.
    Cheers.

    Slight update, my seat arived and its sweet long narrow and super supportive which = comfy for me, not harsh hard but hard enough.

    99% sure that is what I did. I don't remember buying new bushings.

    It's done!

    Thanks all for sharing your pics and build tips. All hand built by yours truly except the wheel set.

    29.33 lbs. because I'm building it as a true AM bike. I have my 22 lbs XC if I want to ride a lighter bike.

    Will be replacing the rotors w/ SICC carbon 180mm when it's released.

    Notables:
    - Just released Thomson AM Carbon bars!
    - Direct mount RD

    @Salespunk - Just absolutely sick! Makes me wonder what it would look like if you got ahold of the Ibis stencils and did White over the light blue...

    @nsxtc - gorgeous build!

    So I'm thinking Hope pro 2 hubs laced to Stans ZTR Flow hoops for my Mojo HD wheelset. Any thoughts?

    That's what I went for - pre-built Hope Hoops as an interim solution to get the bike finished, but so far so good - wheel build quality is okay....

    There are flasher things out there in hubs, but you really can't go past Hope for very reliable and reasonably priced IMO - pretty much set-and-forget, but easy to service if required, easy to get spare parts, and plenty of colour choices if you go through a Hope dealer.

    I do not have enough ride time on my Flow EX's yet to comment. I am (still) a little wary of the lack of eyelets, but they seem to be a well designed rim overall.

    Ultimately though, a well built, properly pre stressed and tensioned wheel build makes a big (biggest?) difference to longevity, so ideally I would still make sure they are built up by a good wheel builder if they are going to be your main wheel set and you want them to last.... Do as I say and not as I do right..?
