Got a new frame, Blur LT2, with the monarch 3.3 shock on! thinking of swapping it with my old RP23 since I had no issues with it, mostly AM use!
Has anyone had experience with the monarch?

Been running one on my Tallboy....really like it....pedals much nicer than the Fox on VPP bikes.....plus, the Gate adjustments actually do something.....SC spec's a low valving on the Fox shocks so the Pro Pedal doesn't do very much.

Nope.....can go up to just about 300 psi.....which you will be using your body weight as a base to set your shock..

I ordered my LTc with a Fox but got a Monarch instead, this shock is certainly very good ad pedalling, or is the bike? I am 190lbs and the shock is set according to manufacturer recommendations. I was told that Monarcha are easier to rebuild, is this true?

I definitively notice a difference with the different pro pedal settings on the LT2, especially when standing. I didn't on the blur classic. Dunno if this is a vpp2 thing?

That's what they told me too, they are easier to rebuild and might be able to do it yourself following instructions!
