I have my Rune setup with a Stage 5 and 500 pound Ti spring. I'm 170lbs with out gear and I ride with all of the normal FR/DH safety gear, I'm guessing around 185lbs with all of it on. Drop n' Zone set me up with the spring and all of the calculators I've used, if I used them correctly, says to use a 500lbs spring. A guy at a LBS said that 500lbs seems a bit "burly." The part of the spring calculators that I wasn't sure if I was using right was when it asked "How many turns for preload?" and was wondering if that could drastically alter the calculations. Does 500lbs seem right?
