mine came with a 450, (large frame) how much do you wiegh.bhamrider22 said:currently i have a 400lbs. spring on my manitou swinger 3-way for my big hit comp, and it is feeling way to soft of the bigger drops. what weight do you guys run? and wut would u recommend for someone doing drops around 10ft. and "agressive freeriding"?
at that weight, you should be ok, you can put up to 175 psi in the shock and set the pre-load a little more, but snice your not that heavy I would think the 450 might be to heavy a spring, (IMO).bhamrider22 said:mines a medium frame, i weigh 145
well it depends on the shock, manatau has different spring weights than fox does, Im just going by what my freind rides, one of my buddies rides a med. and does all the same stunts, drops, and goes even bigger than me and he has never complaned and has the stock spring, but like I stated, there are other adjustments than changing the spring, if that doesnt work, by all means get a heavier one, they are pretty cheap.bhamrider22 said:are u sure 400lbs. is good for 10' and higher drops?? the guy at my LBS said today that i should get a 500lbs.
