I recently purchased a 06 GF Fat Possum and it came with a spring that is too soft for my weight 5"11 200lb. I believe its the one that came with the bike.

The only stiffer one that i found was this one:

Anyone know where else i can find one? Or possibly know any discount codes.

Thank!

If the Comp coils are like the Elite coils you'd like the extra-firm. For my 200+ lb ride weight, the "firm" Elite coil was softer than a Pike's medium coil. $18 is pretty cheep to try it out.

Thanks for the info! Ill go for the extra firm. It comes up to about $25 w/shipping. Ill see if any discounts come up before the end of the month tho lol (yeah im cheap). Maybe in a year or so ill upgrade to a air shock.
