Help: Spring Weights

Postby kev77 » Fri Aug 16, 2013 21:49 pm

I currently have a Nukeproof 800 x 2.25 spring fitted to a Fox Vanilla

However according to Mojo, calculated against my weight it should be a 450 X 2.25

Am I really going to notice much difference in how the shock and spring behave or should I just forget about it for now?

Cheers

That's a huge difference, you'd certainly notice it, right now you'll only be getting about 2/3's the travel you would get with the softer spring (allowing for compression damping staying roughly the same).

How did you end uo with the spring you have?

It was already on the bike before I got it, thought it was a bit sus having such a weighted spring

Anyone got one spare?

Anyone need a Nukeproof spring?

Cheers
