So I have the opportunity to purchase a monarch plus rc3 or a vivid air for my Dixon. I am hoping to be able to parking lot test them before I buy, depending on time and seller patience. Can anyone comment on their experience between the two if possible.
I am looking for downhill performance mainly. Sure I would like some pedalling platform if I'm riding on the road but the Dixon does not have much pedal bob when sitting and pedalling. If all I need to do is crank the compression damping on the vivid for the ride up the road I could live with that. I am never flicking my propedal on and off. My main thinking for considering the vivid is the ending travel rebound adjust. I have never had that option, is this a huge benefit? On the monarch I would be able to adjust the air can volume with the rings or a smaller air can, the vivid does not have that option AFAIK. Currently I run a volume reducer on the RP23, not because it bottoms, it just feels more supportive.
