springs are $30.

I have a brand new XFirm spring right here, but it would be too much trouble to send it for just $30.


If you don't know much about forks, have your LBS put the spring in for you. It shouldn't take more than 5 minutes. Watch how they do it. It as easy as removing two bolts and a top cap. The trick is to do it without losing your semi bath oil or making a mess.

Would you be interested in some type of exchange for stock? I haven't even received the fork yet, so it would be brand new.
Then I could have TWO stock springs! yay!

Just kidding. Sorry I even mentioned the spring, I'm not going to sell it or even mess with trying to get rid of it. It will make a nice giant bobble head doll some day!


$30 isn't much. Get the spring and you're done. Hope you like the fork! :cool:

Another question that I started thinking about after I ordered the Pike. I have a fork mounted Yakima rack (copperhead) on the roof of my car. It has a quick release clap on it. With the axle opening in in pike being round opposed to a QR dropout, I am assuming that I will have a problem getting that to work. Anyone with similar issues?
