Thanks so much for replying back. Ordering the Monarch Plus then. M/L tune should be...correct?

Finally....define "too aggressive" hahaha.....I do Enduro/AM type or riding...like to go down fast and on techy stuff, but in terms of jumps nothing huge as I did when I did DH....is that what you mean?

Thanks again mate!

Hello,

Any issues with the Monarch Plus reservoir hitting the top tube at full compression yet? I know that without air there's a tiny bit of space still, but, when riding and doing big compressions (hucking), is it hitting it?

I am thinking about doing the upgrade on my 2014 Spicy Team (Large) bike since the Ei is just too troublesome and wanted something better than the normal Monarch shock.

Thanks!

Hello,
How have you been doing with the piggyback shock? Does it touch the top tube on big compressions? I've seen people put those one on Large frames and there's still a tiny bit of clearance with the shock fully compressed, yet I wasn't sure if while riding and doing big hucks, if the shock still touched the frame or not.

I have a 2014 Large Spicy Team (carbon) bike and have had it enough with the troublesome Ei shock, so I want to replace the shock and was wanting a Monarch Plus.

The other thing, what tune do you have on the shock? M/M, L/M, M/L?

Thanks in advance!

Props to Jose Villlalobos on 7th place and surviving that crash on the big doubles!!!! We're proud of the kid in Costa Rica......also extremely proud of our always great Carlos Castillo, his younger brother Roberto and Ignacio Alfaro who survived his Intense 951 frame breakage. Costa Rica rippers FTW!!!!!

She's just about the same as yours, 17.63kg! It's slightly heavier when using the Mavic EX823s and the minions as opposed to the Deemaxes with Schwalbes.
