Thanks, im still fairly new to all of this, I just considered that option as it was cheap. think I will give it a swerve then.

gabriel-mission9 pointed out I had misread the specs. Check out our subsequent posts; there's a chance it could work. Maybe not a top choice, but if it's cheap enough, maybe it's close enough Wink

What bike would it be going on?

a 2015/2016 giant trance. planning on going for a 200x57 length.

High leverage ratio on that one, so it's not a bad candidate. I don't recall exactly how fast the LSR could be on the most open rebound setting for that shock, but I think it was, as gabriel-mission9 said, quite fast. If the only concern is too-slow HSR, that's the least detrimental damping parameter to have a little off.

You've confirmed you won't have tire or frame interference with the longer stroke?

Anyone had this noise from a Monarch before and managed to fix it? I've stripped and rebuilt the shock to the extent that the service manual covers as well as removing the compression and rebound dials but couldn't see anything amiss.

(Not my video but sane problem)

The good old knocking

I read somewhere that the shaft(if i remember corct) is coming loose after some time because there is no locktite

On another subject has anyone had success running an 11spd shimano setup with a 10spd shimano derailleur?

It's called "Monarch knock". Show it to Sram and they will say "we've never seen that issue before"...

It's not detrimental to performance, and as far as I can tell it is not to do with anything coming loose. It's just annoying

Not sure about shimano, but I’ve done it with sram and it’s just fine.

Shimano tends to be more finicky with those kinds of setups, but you could probably pull it off with the right cassette.

Why can the two main suspension manufacturers not make components that dont have creaks and clacks. Fox CSU creaks are the noise that i hear when I go to sleep at night.

Two words: Bottom Line

I’ve had good luck with fixing Fox CSU creak with penetrating loctite and/or replacing the crown race. Usually the problem seems to be dust working it’s way into places it shouldn’t be.

Hi I have a question about the bos idylle suspension, I would like to know what is the right size of oil that goes in it? thank you waiting for a reply!

I assume you are asking what weight of oil? From what I can tell it's 7.5 weight, it sounds like 7 weight will work fine. I found a forum that discusses it here:

https://ridemonkey.bikemag.com/threads/bos-idylle-users-oil.237261/

If you are asking about oil height here is a link I found for that:
