RockShox Monarch R shock 216x63mm

$70 GBP
For sale is a RockShox Monarch R 216x63mm shock . It came off a 2015 NS Snabb E2, but was only used for four rides before I upgraded to a different shock. It is in perfect working order and is in near-new condition; there are no scratches or chips on the shafts surface. There is a bushing in the upper eyelet, but not in the lower. Postage is included in the price, and delivery is to mainland UK only. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Thank you.

The Argument For Short Travel Bikes - Opinion
Another thing is that AM-type bikes don't really interest me. I like big bikes. If a bike is basically an engine short of being a 'crosser (one of my dream bikes is a Race Link), that get's me more stoked than the latest carbon-framed whippet. At the end of the day, as long as they're honest about what kind of rider they are, it shouldn't matter what people ride, on what terrain and what level of ability. Everyone should be able to ride what they want without feeling that have to justify it to fit in with the current trend, which I feel this article propagates. In an ideal world, some people would be cranking out road miles on an Avalanche-sprung Karpiel, while others would be ripping Whistler on a carbon roadie, and no one would give a shit. Whoever posted this; http://www.pinkbike.com/u/cseachris/blog/To-Each-Their-Own.html Said it much more eloquently and concisely than my ramble above did.

The Argument For Short Travel Bikes - Opinion
Granted, the author prefaced the article by saying that we all ride bikes for fun. But that having said that, why write the article at all? It's essentially correct; if you start riding on a HT or short travel bike you will, generally, become a better rider, but it assumes that we're all care, an responsibility, free youngsters who have aspirations of being pro racers. I'm 31 and only started riding 3 or so years ago. I've got a family, and currently don't get much chance to go riding. While I'd definitely like to be a more skillful rider, I'm more interested in just having fun. I started on a Mongoose Black Diamond, then got a Glory FR and now have an old-shape Solid Mission 9. Despite my monster truck (which is totally excessive for the relatively mild tracks on which it's regularly ridden) I'm by far the slowest and least confident rider in my group of friends, some of which on much shorter travel bikes, but I have just as much of a laugh as they do. I'm willing to bet that riding a 5-6 inch bike wouldn't change any of that. I don't see why I should feel ashamed or guilty of owning a bike that I will most likely never reach the limits. Other than jealousy, or a chip on their shoulder, I can't see why a lot of riders take such offence that people spend their hard earned money whatever they want, or that loving, hard-working parents buy their kids the best they can afford.
