Speaking of the CCDB does anyone know any sites selling them at a decent price? Buying them from the UK for me at the minute means getting stung with the UK-Euro exchange rate.

Just got the Monarch on feels great pay no attention to the cluttered workbench.

I just put my Monarch+ on and feels like it is a very good match for the VPP and works nicely alongside my Stage. The only problem i've run into is water bottle fitment inside the front triangle, I have tried to modify my current cage but still doesn't fit a 16 oz bottle. Are there any cages that you know of that would fit or could be modified to fit all of the way down agaist the seat tube?

Hey guys and gals I'm looking at upgrading the rear shock on my Bronson and I'm looking for some good recommendations, thanks!

I have the Monarch RC3 on mine and it gave me nothing but trouble. SRAM is replacing it with one that is tuned for a Bronson.

I decided not to place a lot of faith in the replacement and went with a Cane Creek Double Air CS. Will report back after it arrives.

I am on a 2015 Bronson with an XT kit

Any idea if SRAM sell a Monarch RC3 that's Bronson tuned?

Any news on this... looking to upgrade my Bronson 2014 with a fox x2

I highly recommend the Fox X2. Upgraded to it when my Monarch Plus RC3 that came stock on my V2 Bronson blew up multiple times. Never ridden a better shock!

Similar story here. My monarch rct3 lasted 2 weeks and blew up. I bought a dpx2 factory and it has been awesome. If your riding had a real mix of trails I can definitely recommend the dpx2
