I went to 500 from Ohilns spring calculator that stuck me at 457 lb spring. I think it's all on what you're trying to do. At the end of the day, it is only 140mm in the rear. For what its worth, the Ohlins TTX is better than the pushed 11.6 I had on my wreckoning (in retrospect, that bike and its DELTA link has fundamental issues). I'd say the Ohlins feels more like a planted and "race ready" than I I've felt in a shock before. If the goal is gobs of traction and to go fast, I'd say Ohlins TTX coil, hands down (it is amazingly composed). However, like any high HSC based stack, its gonna feel like a brick laying massive turds if you're not aggressive with the bike.

For what its worth, I recently stuck an Ohlins TTX with an absurdly high HSC tune on it (CS40) and have been messing around with it for about a month now. I find that, while a bit liberal with its travel, the crap ton of HSC means that it stays pretty up and supportive through a majority of things and really only bottoms out with any sort of harshness on square edge hits that are full weight on the rear. It also means I run pretty open LSC (which has its benefits). I'm 200ish on a 500 lb spring. I also run a pretty firm front of the bike and tend to ride front heavy. That being said, I think a nice air shock would lean better to a more back wheel friendly rider.

Anyone know his rider weight/sag is. I'm rocking a 475 lb spring and I'm pretty sure he's like a third of my weight.
