Was told back (Xtra firm spring) by Sram but question that since I'm only 180-185 lbs with gear? I finally gave up trying to make my 160mm Solo Air work for FR use and the extra 10mm travel doesn't hurt either. Conversion seems simple enough.

Thanks,

I run one on my Knolly Delirium (Large) and I'm 6'2" @ 210 no gear.
I am running the Blue (Firm) spring with no issues.
2 preload spacers.

For DH / FR I run about 3 clicks HS and 2-6 LS depending upon conditions.
I use full travel but don't bottom hashly. Hits are 4' to flat max, anything bigger is trannied.

For your weight I would run the stock spring.
Which is... the red medium spring? I like a plush fork as much as the next guy but I don't want to be bottoming out on big drops either. I've gotten smoother this year so I shouldn't worry as much but how are you guys finding the Lyrik 170 coils to perform for pure FR use?

Thanks!
