    RS Monarch RT3 rear shock for 2012 5 Spot

    Hello bike gurus.

    I recently bought a 2012 Anno Orange Small 5-Spot Frame at ProBike Hong Kong (thanks to Mr. Patrick Cheung of PB). It came with a Fox Float RP23 Kashima Coat rear shock which I intend to replace with an RS Monarch RT3.

    What rebound and compression tune of the Monarch should I get? M/M or L/L? I am 150 lbs who loves bombing the local trails in the Philippines.

    Any suggestions guys?

    I plan to use an RS Revelation WC tapered 150mm Fork Single Air up front.

    Light compression, medium rebound.

    I'm only 10lbs heavier than you and have to run the rebound damper completely maxed. If I had a few more clicks, I'd use them. It's still just a tad fast, even maxed out.

    Definitely go for a Light compression. I'm on a M/M on my RC3 Plus and sadly it's a bit too harsh.
