    2013 SB-95AL w/RS Monarch Plus RC3

    Hello All,

    I am very interested in using the Rock Shox Monarch Plus RC3 on my new build, as I believe it would be a very complimentary pairing to the 140mm. RS PIKE that I am going to run up front... That said, I know the FOX rear the Frame comes with was tuned specifically for it. Does anyone have any set-up/tuning thoughts on the Monarch.

    Would be greatly appreciated

    Many Thanks,

    PF

    I just, as in Friday, put a new Monarch Plus on my SB95c. I haven't had a chance to trail test it yet, but it seems to hold up in travel more so than the stock Fox which is what I wanted. I felt the Fox was a tad spiky and blew thru travel a little to easily. Of course I am Clydeworthy so that might make a difference. For what it's worth they both seem to pedal the same on tarmac in terms of shock movement, which is essentially none. The Monarch is in full open position as well.

    In other words, do it I have a Pike on mine as well and they suspension feel is very similar front and back now.

    Right on Fella! MUCH appreciated. I'm a bit of a Clyde myself @ 6'5" 220, so your perspective def helps. My build is about another 5-6 weeks out
    (waiting on my ENVE/I-9's..), but I'd love to hear more as you continue trail test it.

    Big Thanks,

    PF

    Also, any initial set up tips?

    What travel setting are you guys running your pikes at? 140 or 150mm?

    I'd hit it, but I bruise like a peach.
