Looking at getting a TI spring for my SS. What spring rate should i go for?
The current one is 350 (which I think is too light for my weight?), I weigh 175lbs (80kg).

Thanks in advance.

Damn- you're 175 and riding a 350# coil- you need a 500# for sure. I weigh 165 and a 450 works fine for most things, but I wanted it a bit stiffer for jumping so I put on a 500# and I still get a good amount of sag and it isn't harsh on the trail either.

Thanks for the advice guys. The 350 was just what it came with.
Think ill go for the 450.

Another thing...

Any idea where I can get hold of an SS owners manual (ideally online), frame never came with one. The one I have found is from 2006 and hence doesn't include the SS.

Thanks again.
