- Shock upgrade worth it? 2006 Orange 5.
I’ve got a 2006 Orange 5 with a 2007 Manitou X3 shock.Posted 4 years ago
Would an shock upgrade be worthwhile? I’m not looking at spending too much (under £200) and have seen some Monarch shocks in the sales and a DT swiss carbon one heavily reduced on CRC. Any experience of these or others?
Up front I have a 2007 vanilla R fork.
For what it’s worth, I think a shock upgrade would benefit you. However, I wouldn’t go for a DT Swiss shock on a single pivot. The Monarch may well be a good option. A friend had a RP23 upgrade from a Manitou and noticed a huge difference so the Monarch should be close enough…Posted 4 years ago
