Hi guys,
I'm thinking about putting a Monarch XX shock an my Conway WME for the races in Belgium an Germany where there are a lot of short nasty sprints/uphills in the stages.
I'll try to get a Debonair aircan for it.
Does anyone have any experience with this shock? I have heard that the damping is not the best on rough stuff, but I suppose that it is better than the one I get from riding my Monarch Plus in the Med compression setting the entire stage...

i ride my plus in the meduim setting most of the time, i like the harder compression damping it gives together with a supple beginning stroke, it floats over most stuff at speed. i was riding it in the open most of the time until recently i changed my riding style a bit Smile

I don't like the feeling of the medium setting over successive small bumps, I tend to loose tracktion there.
I won't be able to get a monarch XX anyway, it is not sold in 216/63, there was a mistake on SRAMs website...

Maybe I'll try to build a DIY remote lock

i was thinking that too...

i preffer compression over putting volume spacer kits, compression gives away on big bumps, air can't do that.. i think i'm going to try to make the comp harder in my fork, i was running the HSC maxed, i tried lower air volume but it gives less suport and just adds bottom out imo

What do you guys think of the transition bandit 27.5?

Just got a pair of XT M8000 brakes. Feel great in the parking lot. Testing them on Saturday.
Anybody got some experience?

I've ran XT's not too long ago with the metal icetech pads on the icetech rotors, I liked them, they are strong and if you get the levers set up to your liking they can have pretty good modulation for how powerful the initial bite is. I am now running hope race e4's on my enduro bike and I like the modulation better and find them to be plenty powerful. Not sure I could go back to shimano's for their insane initial power but I used to like that about them. Anyhow, that's my experience. btw when I was running them I ran the levers very close to the bars and very far in so just my index finger was on them, if you do this make sure they are bleed correctly so you get a good consistent lever, I noticed my lever would get further away from the bar when they got real hot sometimes but that wouldn't happen that much.

Graves will perform regardless of what he's on. I agree though, it's an interesting turn of events, glad he's going to get paid. Interested to see how much the Enduro is changed as a result of his influence.

Curious to see what Yeti is doing 2016 season for EWS and riders in general. They have been a great funnel for riders to grow from and have success in their cycling careers.
