Hi all

 

Does anyone where i could get a coil for my DH bike?

CRC have squat. ebays overpriced and it wont come in time

I cant find anything. looking for 200lbs 3.25

any ideas what bike shops that might sells them in ZA?

or if you have one i can buy off of you.

 

need one urgently. my new bikes running a low leverage linkage and the 350lbs is way to heavy

I can barely get the shock to compress 10mm.

 

Thanks for any help

Take your current spring to them and ask them to make one up to the same stroke but with the weight rating you need. 
 
Don't know how much they'll charge, but they're your best bet for a spring if you can't find anything online.

Saayman is RIP OFF .. rather try Alfa spring works.  normally about 1/4 of price and much better service.  I buy from there and courier down, still LOT cheaper.  (Automotive stuff, not tried bicycles)

Capewell should be able to assist as well.  I dealt with Emile last time, sales manager.

Swop the tubes for the foamo. They work!!!! Will also let you setup tubeless a little easier.

Thanks Droo :)

ill see if i can pop in today,

 

need to get some tubes too

Is that the correct weight spring for you? Just asking. Those Morewood's have a long stroke hence the lighter spring but is 200 right? Edited by Duane_Bosch

i did some reading and scouring on PB

 

okes who are 70kgs used 250-280lbs on they're makulus.

 

so a 200 should be fine for me. im only 52kgs

150lbs will make a big difference for me. pottie told me i should try a 200 aswell

 

although i dont want a perfect 35% sag

i like it being a bit more stiff so dont suffer hard bottom outs

 

but this low leverage linkage should stop harsh bottoms since it takes more to compress it....unlike that canyon that was a bit more same feel straight throughout.
