razorjack, you'll want a bit less sag for the coil platform, we've found 27-30% to be the sweet spot. From my experience a 400lb spring (with 0-1 turns of preload) on the RS coil should work well for your weight.well...i made a mistake, i've ordered 450lbs (frame L, weight 76-77kg) without looking at internet.
that 450lbs (on RS Super Deluxe Ultimate) is too stiff (i have 20% SAG) so i guess i'll be looking at 400lbs spring.
however, CC site proposes 350lbs ??
(avg. ratio: 2.47, Patrol 2018)
and Fox page says about even 300lbs/in if i want 30% SAG ( https://www.ridefox.com/fox_tech_center/owners_manuals/08/WCeng/Content/mtbspringratecalculator.html )
what do you think? i weight about 167-168lbs (with a gear, ready to ride)
400lb would be our recommendation to start but every rider and trail zone is different. 350lb may work well for you if your riding style is smooth and/or your local trails don't have too many big hits, I think you'll find the 300lb spring too soft for most riding. enjoy the new bike!hm...Fox calculator still says i can achieve ~27% SAG with 350lbs/in coil... (300lbs/in if i want 30-31% SAG)
