The Tuesday Tune Ep 22 - Inside the Monarch Plus and Super Deluxe
@thuren: About 186lbs with gear. I think 150psi got me to 33% sag recommended by Transition. I had a Scout before and the Monarch had a limited rebound adjustment range as well. Ended up going to a Float X with Corset and it was perfect!

Have Your Say on the Ever-Changing Bike Standards
@notenduro: 148, 150, 142 is the dropout spacing. For example you do not measure the part the slides into the frame on 135 axle, if you did it would be more like 142 since they are about 3.5mm each side. This is why what you are talking about is 141mm not 148mm. https://www.sheldonbrown.com/frame-spacing.html The 141mm is a cheaper version of boost which the end to end measurement would be 148 (2mm less then 150mm on a thru alxe frame) so low end frames retain the same chainline and such. You can change the caps to use on a boost thru axle frame. Personally I would not buy a Trail bike with this odd ball spacing as a QR is more flexible. For road disk maybe it could make sense because your hubs could be used on a trail bike. https://www.bikerumor.com/2016/04/15/soc16-marin-shows-pine-mountain-1-ushers-new-141mm-boost-qr-dropouts/ My point is that why not make DH bikes with boost and forget about 150mm? Even if you had a bike with the boost QR, you could buy the end caps for thru axle and run it on another bike with standard boost. Most hubs now cannot convert to boost without buying a whole new hub. I just like cross compatibility.
