    Best replacement Shock for a 2017 Stumpjumper

    Need to replace my 2017 Specialized Stumpjumper Fattie shock (Rockshock Monarch RT), it keeps on sticking (air stuck in the negative chamber, I'm assuming).

    What is the best option for a heavy rider like myself. I weigh around 260 LBS with my gear at 6.2 ft in height.

    Im 260 on a 2018 stumpy and got the topaz for it. Smooth supple shock but i cant set it up at less than 35% sag. Pedals horrible.

    My monarch was stuck down when i bought the bike so they fixed under warranty and took off the auto sag. This past month i sent out the topaz for service and tried out the repaired monarch for the first time. Stuck down on the first ride. Its sent out again for repair.

    They did give me the heavy tune from the 150mm stumpy model and it felt great! Pedals so nice with the bike sitting up more.

    Id talk to a rebuild shop about the monarch and see what can be done.

    Topaz isnt sold anymore w proprietary mount. So go for a yoke conversion to try something else but it does void frame warranty. So ive been told.
