Hi guys
Im thinking of buying the capra al.
Everything is great except one thing. How does the rockshox monarch plus r do on climbs (if I am right that it has no lockout).
Thanks

The questions is, how you do on climb?Smile

Monarch and capra suspension do it well.

And coil does it better on all except fire road climbs.

Science helps us understand and discuss the role a lubricant. in your case an unknown "spray grease"'s viscosity and properties play on friction. It's suitability in it's working environment and allows us to quantify both. it's our understanding of such information that separates us from #Monkeys.
Taking #Science into consideration "just spray a load of grease into the housing then push the cable through"
is far from sound advice. I hope you'll rise above our primate instincts to see my point and the error of your ways Dave.

Plus. all good quality gear cable inner and outer comes pre-lubricated/treated

So spraying said unknown grease into the gear housing is vastly different from rubbing said unknown grease onto the gear cable itself.... I think not.

Anyone with a few brain cells can work out that when someone on a bike forum gives advise to use a spray grease that they mean a spray grease that is suitable for the task that they have been advised to use it for. But I guess your inability to work that out must be that ''primate instinct'' coming out in you. And I think this speaks volumes about the advice you have given.

Whether the advice I gave is sound or not in your eyes, the fact that I have given evidence in the fact that I have used this technique on all of my bikes and have had never had to change a cable due to any ill effects of said technique speaks for itself really.

Copying and pasting quotes form the internet in an attempt to sound like you know what you are talking about doesn't really cut it. And referencing primates as an attempt at an insult just reeks of internet troll. So with that in mind I will leave you to it.Rolleyes Beer

Boys!!

I for one find this thread very useful and feel that there is a good sense of community here so please don't get hooked in by certain comments that could be considered as trolling (yes we have all seen it on here many times). We all have one thing in common in that we have owned, want to own or currently own an awesome bike that needs a bit of tlc now and again.

Peace brothers!

Hey guys,

For those with a coil rear end, what spring rate are you running for the riding you do. I'm about 185-190lbs, would 350lb spring be good? I do a mix of trail and bike park riding with it. Just want an idea what everyone's set up is.

I'm 180 and I have a 400lb spring and it gives me 30% sag on my fox dhx 5

Running a 425lbs coil from ti-springs.com and weigh roughly 185lbs fully dressed out.

Recently switched to coil as well. I'm around 180, running 375#, gives me about 35% sag right on target.

7NM and only 3m hex key, these should be made out of steel.

Anyone else stripped one of these before?
