    hey guys,

    need to replace the rear spring on my bike as im a little chunkier than most, and i need some help in making sure i get the right one

    so heres the facts:

    its an 04 kona coiler deelux, with 5 inches rear travel via a fox vanilla rc

    i weigh about 16 stone//224 pounds

    and my current spring has 450lbs and 2.30 written on it, if that helps

    so any help would be much appreciated

    cheers

    Your common sense is the Mother of all reason. When you get an answer, arrive at a solution, share it as others may benefit. Always assume there are others
    in your situation and by the way, let me know so I will know too.
