I have a Nomad 2 (2010) which originally came with a Rockshox Monarch 3.3 shock. After a little more than 1 season, the shock started leaking (air and oil) even though it was serviced about 3 - 4 months earlier. The shock had to be sent back to Rockshox, but even they couldn't fix it, so they sent me a brand-new one. Same problem again...
Bottomline, I don't wanna see this shock ever again on my bike. I'm currently looking at the RP23 and O2 RCX. Does anybody have experience with an O2 RCX on a Nomad (or similar bike) and could give me some feedback?
P.S.: Some additional info: I weigh 115 lbs and do anything from XC to light DH. The Monarch was specifically tuned to my weight and riding style (including the lighest oil available) which resulted in considerable performance improvement, but overall, I was never blown away by this shock...
Thanks in advance!
