Hi there guys...

I've a DT swiss EX200 on my bike at the moment but was thinking of ditching it as I'm unable to service it myself and have to send it to Pace - which I think is a liberty, but hey-ho, what isn't these days - so... I was thinking of going the route of a Monarch; has anyone reading this done the same or experience with the Monarch, what is the ride like?

Also, I've absolutely no idea what size would fit the frame. I could speak to pace but thought I'd ask the nice users of Retrobike to see if anyone could help out :?:

Many, many thanks in advance,

Tony :D

Can't speak about on a Pace frame but am running a Monarch RT3 from the first batch on my Stumpy FSR and it's a great little shock.

Read a few things about them leaking in the past but not sure if it was on specific revisions or not. Might be worth a google.

You could measure te shock eye to eye for length and measure the stroke though for size?

sorry to butt in but if you are thinking of selling the EX200 i would be interested in it.
Can you confirm eye 2 eye length and shaft length?
