I’m 5’6” and traditionally speaking should be on a small but have ridden mediums around 435mm reach for the last 5 or so years. Lately I’ve downsized a tad in both reach and wheelbase and very happy. I reached

Didn’t see the ride monkey thread but I have to agree. For me if you’re riding for the downs then DH or DD tyres are by far superior to the exo (Xc) tyres. And it’s not just because they are more resilient, they squirm less and are way more damped. But

I read your post dude, I just don’t think you’re correct. It’s nothing like a Spectral (even if they chose to use the name which they won’t). Slapping new parts on a 5 year old frame doesn’t really constitute an update. It’s not like they’ve put a whole ... more »

~25-28% if memory serves. I wanted a little less sag with the coil to leave as much travel available for bumps. Its more linear, obviously, and this formula seemed to work well.

That’s kinda what I was getting at - I think if you’re gonna run a coil on these a higher spring rate than what is normally accepted looks like a good formula.

Bryceland has been running the coils on all his bikes lately but also runs a much firmer spring rate than most of us mere mortals would. I think if you’re gonna do that they coil makes sense to retain a little compliance off the top but otherwise on these bike it doesn’t seem to make much sense.

In my opinion we are all too quick to turn to the coil as a ‘burlier’ option to air when in reality it may be the opposite for many bikes around today. As has already been mentioned sticking a coil on a bike designed around an air shock may mean you ... more »
