    Some help on my Fantom Team DS

    I was absolutely bombing down a section tonight and proceeded to blow out the rear shock and tire. The shock collapsed and would not rebound even though it had pressure in it. Its a Monarch RT3 but I am trying to figure out what the size is. I know its on the shaft but since its collapsed and wont extend I cannot see it.

    Can anyone tell me what sized Monarch RT3 came on the 2013 Fantom Team DS?

    Good bet it's 165mm. When I was looking at FS bikesdirect bikes during this time period, I don't think I saw bd use a different length shock on one of their bikes except for their cheap coil spring ones.

    Yeah I took some measurements on the frame and figured it was either the 152 or 165 but wasnt positive. Thanks for the help.
