    New question here. Stumpy - Monarch Plus?

    Looks like a monarch plus will fit on a stumpy. Do you guys think specialized could order one or is this one custom?

    A few of the special Clevis shafts were made for some of the Specialized team riders who are sponsored by Rockshox. There are a hand full of them out there, but it wasn't a part available to the public.

    Well I heard back from specialized faq pretty much said check with your shop to see if it will fit before ordering. Lame.

    They (SRAM) just announced the Monarch plus to fit the Enduro and Stumpjumper 29 and 26, they are a few weeks away I think but they are coming.

    SRAMS parts catalog doesnt shine any light. Must be only a few elites that have access to the adapter from specialized

    Just called our Specialized sales rep and asked about the Monarch. He said at this point he didn't have any info about a Monarch being available soon. The only thing he knew was the option for SRAM sponsored riders. It's certainly not something I could order right now.

    Got it from the SRAM rep here in New Zealand, he sent out part numbers too but don't have them here as I am on holiday now, they said they were available to order but would be 6 weeks wait as they would not be stocking them, just ordering from SRAM directly as people ordered them from us.

    Well here is what I heard from Sram via email.

    This is a custom shock only sold specifically to Specialized. We’re hoping to have it available aftermarket in the future, but we are working with Specialized on that at this time. Nothing has been finalized as of yet.

    Regards,

    Just called sram service/tech department; if you want one you have to call Specialized and see if they will sell you one. We send the shocks to them and they set them up to fit their bikes. Bummer dude. Looks like my dealer will be calling Specialized and seeing if they can get one if they want to sell me a new Enduro. Would love to have RockShox front and rear.

    I feel like this should be obvious to me, but for some reason, I have no idea which dropper post is on this bike. It looks like it is internally routed and has a setback saddle clamp. Any of you that can shed light on this? Sorry for the slight derail on this thread. A Monarch Plus would be a very sweet setup for a Stumpy Evo 2012 and up.

    Translation, we want to control the upgrade path on our bikes and don't want Sram selling directly to the customer.

    Sitting here at my desk banging my head on the keyboard. Not only do they want the control it really seems as they are just not listening to their customer base at all. I'm so glad to see I'm not the only one frustrated with very specific issues on the Stumpy. This $&t is getting old and making other options this spring so much more attractive right now. If I decide to get off of the 29 and go 27.5, no way in hell it will be a Specialized with the value's out there.

    Can you post phone # for NZ SRAM. Since I'm in the US it looks like I'll have to go through NZ.
    Thanks

    It doesnt matter. The shocks are the same size. The link is what makes the 2012-14 an Evo, not the shock size.

    I'll check on retail price today, like I said earlier we have been told that there will be a 6 week wait for them so I imagine that SRAM will be selling them as well, if you do a little research I'm sure you can find the Nz SRAM number but they are like most wholesalers and will not deal directly with the public.

    Release date is March 17th I think so maybe they can't order them until then. Get your LBS to quote the part number to SRAM and see what they say.

    That bike looks really good.
    I have a 2014 26" Carbon Evo Expert. All black, which I think is even sexier. And the little differene in wheelsize doesn´t bother me.
    But I´d take a Monarch shock as a spare for sure...

    The seat angle looks quite slack though!
