    New Rear Shock - 5010C V1

    Not really looking to do the research. My options are a Fox Float X, Monarch Plus RC3, or a DBinline. Anyone recommend one over the other or have any other information that might help make a decision? Any input appreciated.

    It has. Not interested in "long Shocking" which is where the thread ended up. Looking for comments on a simple replacement without long shocking, sending to PUSH, adding spacers, etc... want to buy a shock and put it on.

    Mine came with a Monarch (with the Debonair can) and I like it fine. If I were looking for a shock from scratch, though, I'd have to take a pretty hard look at the Cane Creek.

    I have the CCDB air inline on my MK1 5010. It's back getting a second rebuild after starting knocking again.

    It's a good shock when working BUT .... I got my RP23 push tuned and custom valves for the 5010 (it originally came with my Nickel frame) and I have to say I much prefer the RP23 for the trails around where I live - forest singletrack and a few DH rock sections. There is good mid stroke support and it feels 'right' for the bike.

    I'll do a back to back comparison with the CC when I get it back. But at the moment the pushed fox wins.

    And before you ask, I know how to setup suspension. Years of practice on motorcycles and MTB's .

    I had a CC Db air (non inline) on my Butcher and it was way better than the inline.

    I think you'd be better getting a push tune than spending big $$$ on a new shock unless you are doing long DH runs etc where the something like a CC might perform a little better.
