So, having a 2017 Troy carbon with the Monarch RT3 and not thoroughly enjoying it all the time, I was considering replacing it with a coil shock. I purchased a Cane Creek DB inline, unfortunately my bike was liberated by some undesirable fellas.

I have since had the bike replaced under insurance, they have given me what I can see is an australian delivered unit with a RockShox Ultimate in 150mm and the same RT3 debonair. I know I can upgrade the front from 150mm to either 160mm or 170mm at most, what would be the best option for the rear shock in the 185x52.5mm trunnion mount?

I was eyeing off the DVO Topaz, any ideas?
