    Monarch Plus & X-Fusion HLR Air were the two I wanted...went w/ Monarch since HLR Air wasn't out yet.

    Tallboy LTC rear shock upgrade?

    I now have about ten rides on my float x rear shock and have finally dialed it. I am 175lbs and it is the med med tube. Much more plush than the reg float, but not sloppy. Descend is really active, trail has excellent traction but removes most bob, and climb is pretty firm-although not a full lockout (which I like because it soaks up some chatter while providing a very efficient pedal platform). I have it set about 2/3 open/fast rebound, and around 195psi (I used about 170psi on the reg float).

    Gotcha,
    Was hoping it was red, so guess the black Haven will remain. I will say, the Havoc 35 business looks tempting! Got some DM stuff on my DH bike w/ a CF bar...WOW! But 800mm bar width is a bit much for a trail bike
