I'm looking to swap out my 165mm coiled suspension for an adjustable air suspension unit so whether I go for a day ride or a laden tour I can dial it in. I have a Challenge Furai and am looking for something at the bottom end pricewise that's available for around £150, lockout would be nice but not essential. I'm hoping someone will have suggestions borne out of experience.
I have a Rockshox Monarch RL on my bike, they seem to be on sale for not too bad prices in 165mm if you have a dig around. It’s not too heavy, does the job, hasn’t needed any attention, and doesn’t seem to need the pressure topping up that often.

But then there is less give or 'suspension'
