    Fox CTD and XC Racing

    Do you guys just set it and go, or are you switching modes during the race dependent on terrain? I have a fs with CTD front and back with no remote switch. So when I'm cruising the trails, I'll reach down an switch the setting around quite a bit, but usually don't want to hassle with it during a race. What's everyone else doing?

    I had a Fox RP23 on my race bike. I would reach down and switch on pro-pedal for climbs and remember to switch it off for descents. The position was easy to reach, but it was also easy to accidentally turn off the pro-pedal every time I grabbed my water bottle. I switched to a Monarch XX with a remote and I find I use the lockout far more. I guess it depends on your terrain, if each lap is a long climb, followed by a long descent, not a big deal, but with lots of short climbs and rocky descents, reaching down all the time is a pain. I definitely prefer the remote. I feel like I gained speed with the stiffer lockout of the XX compared to just the mushy platform of the pro-pedal also.
