I'm trying to do a bit of bike upgrading but it's proving harder than it should be to give away money!
I'm looking at replacing the old Romic coil with an air shock; I was after a Rockshox Monarch RC3 but it seems they simply don't exist, nowhere has any stock at all and can't get hold of any more. Which is a bit of a bugger because I had sort of got my heart set on it after lots of research.
So what else is worth a punt that you can actually get hold of? I wanted something different from a Fox (the last Fox shock I had was utterly unreliable, and they're more expensive too) but I'd quite like the improved compression damping of the RC3 over the RT3 monarch (this is of course assuming that anyone actually has an RT3...)
Is there anything else worth looking at?
It seems to be a growing phenomenon that while the choice of components is quite large the range that you can actually get hold of is an awful lot shorter...
