I'm not sure that I can really tell much of difference between the Pike Ultimate and the Lyrik Ultimate. The Pike is almost 200g lighter and seemed stiff enough. I went with the Lyrik mainly because of the red lowers.

@brurman: If Vital were to rate this bike in the older format, how many stars would you give it for Descending, Climbing, Fun to ride, etc.?

I haven't had a chance to ride the bike yet! I think the 2.6's will be nice. I like the Minion 2.5's for sure as I had them on my previous Ibis Mojo 3.

Kungfufightin, I bought the Evol Air can separately and installed it on the factory shock. It makes a very noticeable difference!

Whats your thoughts on the RS Monarch Plus Debonair rear shock? I'm tempted to get one, but I've got a DB Inline Air on order. DB won't be available until October is what CC is telling me now.

I've only done one ride on the Fatties so far. TBH, they didn't feel much different then the I9 Enduro from before. They come in at 200g light though so they seem to get up to speed better so we'll see...

Nice bike! How much clearance do you have with the 650b wheels? I didn't think that Litville said 650b would fit on this model?

The bike is no more. I ended up selling the frame and various other parts. The DB Air is an awesome shock though!

Is there any way that I can get one of the Monarch Plus Shocks for my 13' Stumpy Evo Troy Lee Edition frame? I would really, really like to finish off my awesome build with one like on your bike Skippy! Can you help me out in any way?

Thanks,

Hey,

I have the same bike as you (Specialized Stumpjumper FSR EVO Carbon 26"). I want to replace the dinky rear shock with a Monarch Plus RC3 like you have on your bike. Can you hook me up with the access to order the correct parts to make one of these shocks work with my bike. I can order the shock from Quality Bicycle Products. I manage a Bike Shop in Rome, Ga called Ordinary Bicycles. Can you help me out??? PLEASE!!!

Thanks,
Mike

Hey, I've got a question for you. My name is Michael and I manage Ordinary Bicycles in Rome, GA. I want to buy a Specialized SJ FSR EVO frameset from Specialized, but I don't like the rear shock that comes standard on the frame. My question to you, is there any way for me to buy a Rockshox Monarch Plus rear shock and have it fit the Evo Yoke in the rear? Can I source the parts to make this happen? I would really appreciate any input here. I've called Fox, and Cane Creek and they don't offer anything aftermarket for this. I saw your bike so I no it can be done.

Thanks,
Mike
