    Haha. That's an odd question. Are the reboound settings the same? Anyways, I would say no bounce would be better because the rebound is doing its job.

    My biggest problem is bottoming out. I am on the small size for rider weight, around 130 without gear. I am 5'11 and ride a large. With 170 in the rear I do seem to bottom out harshly. It isn't just on drops, even plowing through rocks. I do plan on doing some resort riding with the bike so an upgrade would be nice.

    Try2kpup, did you get your Monarch from Push?

    So I just picked up a 2010 Enduro Evo (frame) and I will be swapping over my Sektor RL 150mm for the time being. Trying to get a consensus on what 160mm fork to throw on this thing. I like coil sprung forks and was looking at the Fox 36 Van or a Marzoochi. Looking for some feed back on what might be the better selection. The rear shock is DHX RC2.

    For you and everyone considering a rear shock change from the RP2, I suggest getting the Fox volume spacers for the shock before going drastic with a full shock change.

    The volume smallest volume spacer filled in the soft midstroke and dialed the bottom out to more a of a coil-like couch feel. That and the RP2's is tuned to the Enduro (& rebound damping is quite good)... off the shelf aftermarket shocks are not tuned to the Enduro and will be hit & miss (been there, done that... multiple times, the shims are more important to the tune than the fiddly knobs)

    I now run more sag, bottom less and have a firmer midstroke.

    Regardless, $25 for a 15 minute change experiment - may as well lube that shock too.

    It's good for me, read here:

    I could never get my rp2 to set up right, It was either too stiff and wouldnt use all of its travel, or was too soft, and would blow though it. That and it fades pretty quickly do to its lower oil volume, causing it to "pogo" on long decents...
    Yes, I got mine from PUSH. But I believe they have stepped down from selling custom shocks to get back into simply tuning. At least for now.

    This is a good first step, I agree. However, as mentioned above, the RP lags far behind in the damping area when compared to other offerings. And the RP on the enduros isnt really tuned for the bike, its just an off the shelf medium tune made for a wide range of riders. Nice thing about a PUSHed shock (monarch or otherwise) is that it IS tuned for the bike, rider, and riding style.

    Latest changes are cut steerer tube and a 1x10 conversion.
    So now it's otherwise stock except for:
    36t e13 guide ring
    Truvativ XO taco
    Straitline Vertical Wedge stem
    NS Bikes Aerial pedals

    Next upgrades will probably be a RF Atlas FR bar and a X0 gear lever.

    Yes, but off the shelf shock tune of medium = ? from other shock makers, which is a crap shoot, while the Enduro RP is in the proper range.

    I haven't experienced fade. I usually get leg fade before I feel the shock fade

    lost parts for my 2005 enduro pro need help

    some how 1 part was lost in transit between myself the bike store and the rebuild from fox on my rear air shock. I am not the most handy of all people when it comes to bike stuff but thought i could handle taking off the rear shock to send it away for new seals. anyway long story short all the bearing had seized up on my bike so i bought them and replaced them all. Well come to find out i lost a 3.5mm angeled washer that fits between the frame and the shock strut itself. I called specialized and they said like 80.00 for a complete new bearing kit and all. no exceptions. I cant afford this now as i have already dumped so much into getting her up and running. The part i am looking for should really be 2-3 dollars max. Anyone have an old enduro there parting out. please help.

    Thanks
    p.s. the upper bidwell Chico trails are calling and i need to answer.

    Sorry to hear that. What about a hardware store. These are not "Specialized" parts. I had luck ordering a screw and they've sent it for free!

    How do you like the Butchers on the front?
    Thanks! I love the butcher on the front, it rolls fast, is light and side knobs are great for cornering...

    No but I have a popping noise from the shock area while moving the shock up and down by hand on an enduro expert

    I also have a weird popping/clicking/snapping sound that I can't quite diagnose. Only does it while riding though and seems to come from the front end.

    Looking good. Is that a 180 Talas?

    Did you have those Chunders laying around, or are they still in stock at Bike Shops?

    It is a 180 talas and no they don't make the Chunder anymore.
