Stumpjumper 2011 Upgrade

I fitted this shock to my Stumpjumper 2011, replacing the stock fox/brain setup. In order to fit it, I also had to buy a replacement yoke called Bikeyoke compatible with my year. The difference this has made to my ride is incredible. The brain was getting on, but I didn't realise how badly it was affecting my rides. Climbs were too bouncy, killing my legs quicker than it should, and downhills were sketchy where the rear tyre would feel like it was getting snagged up in the rocks and ruts, slowing me down. With the Monarch Plus, even standing pedaling with the compression open there is very little bob on each rotation, the firm setting is great. Downhill is far faster, less snaggy, more capable. This is money well spent.

Improved Intense

Fitted this shox to my Intense & it has transformed the way it rides. Lots more support in the mid stroke & so plush, it just gobbles up any trail obstackles & soaks up drops in its stride!! Very fast & controlled recovery from compression. Very pleased.

Upgrade

After a year riding with the very capable Monarch RT I decided to upgrade the rear shock on my 2016 Lapierre Overvolt to a Monarch Plus. At 20+Kg I think E-bike's represent a real test for any shock. The difference in damping performance between the two shocks is instantly noticeable, giving real gains in overall ride quality. Significantly better small and large bump absorbance. Great service as always from Tredz and overall very pleased with my purchase.
