    Monarch xx rear shock

    Anyone know the psi recommendation for 195-200 lbs with gear? For some reason can't find a chart or recommendation anywhere.

    I ended up calling sram, the recommendation is riding weight plus 10psi

    It's going to depend on the leverage rate of the bike that it's on.
    Fall is here. Woo-hoo!

    there are no charts because it depends on the bike. Often the bike manufacturer will recommend the sag amount, but if not, 30% is a good starting point.

    How does the Monarch XX pedal in open mode? I'm considering the Trek Top Fuel 9.8 or the Yeti ASRC or Scott Spark. The Trek has the Monarch, without a middle trail setting like the Fox shock on the Yeti or the Nude on the Spark. I'd prefer some suspension working when climbing. Curious what the Top Fuel 9.8/9.9 riders are experiencing.
