    Which Rock Shox Monarch RT3 for 120mm FS fatbike???

    Howdy fellow fatbike riders and enthusiasts!

    Iíve been riding fatbikes since late 2010, and am now finding that my 2014 Borealis Echo hardtail needs to be sold, and I have found an eBayer in China with a 120mm FS carbon frame I am interested in transferring my Borealis components onto. Obviously the Rock Shox Monarch RT3 is the recommended shock for the rear, but which one do I buy? Which model number? There are several listed on UnversalCycles.com:
    • 7.25 x 1.9" DebonAir (Fits '14 Trek Fuel EX 29" C2)
    • 7.75 x 2.215" DebonAir (Fits '14 Trek Remedy 29" C2)
    • 6.5" X 1.5" (Standard)
    • 6.5" x 1.5" (Fits '13-'15 SC Tallboy/Juliana)
    • 7.25" x 1.25" (Standard)
    • 7.25" x 1.75" DebonAir (Fits 2016 Salsa Horsethief/Pony Rustler)
    • 7.25" x 2.25" DebonAir (Fits '10-'15 Trek Remedy 26"/27.5")
    • 7.5" x 2.0" (DebonAir)
    • 7.75" x 1.9" AutoSag (Fits '13-'15 Spec. Camber/Rumor 29" Alloy)
    • 7.75" x 1.9" AutoSag (Fits '16 Spec. Stumpjumper/Rhyme 27.5/29")
    • 7.75" x 2.0" AutoSag (Fits '14-'15 Spec. Camber 29" EVO, D1)
    • 7.875" x 2.0" (DebonAir)
    • 7.875" x 2.0" DebonAir (Fits '13-'15 SC 5010/Juliana Furtado, D1)
    • 7.875" x 2.25" (DebonAir)


    Jesus christ, which one do I choose?

    There is 200mm between both shock mounting points. I am sort of a newb when it comes to FS bikes (have only ever owned two, itís been a few years). I want to be sure I am buying the correct shock. Any/all helpful information GREATLY appreciated.

    Cheers! 🍻🚵

    Sorry, quick update. Seller is recommending 200x51Ö however I am still seeing multiple model numbers. °Soy confuso!

    Seems as though the model used on the Santa Cruz 5010 will work. I will let you all know if I bought the wrong shock!

    200 x 51 = 7.875 x 2.0. But you also need to know the damping 'tune' that the frame requires, and you need to know the size of the reducers that adapt the shock to the frame. The seller should have all of this spelled out plainly.

    So no interest in a Fatillac?

    You can run 5" or 6" rockers...
