    Any experience with Rocshox sektor u-turn springs?

    Hi,

    I'm thinking of replacing my Rockshox Sektor's U-Turn Spring to "Firm" or "X-Firm". I currently weigh 225 without any gear (birthday suit).

    Rockshox spring tables show for all their spring that anything above 180 or 200 (depends on fork) should take x-firm, but I'm worried it would be to stiff to my riding style (1-2 ft. drops is all I'm gonna do), and I do love a plush ride.

    the medium spring is just ridiculously soft bottoming down on every 0.5-1 ft. step.

    any one had an experience with this fork (or others) and replacing a spring? I got one answer on the shocks forum but I thought to give it a try here as well.

    thanks a lot,
    Jack

    go extra firm. they are pretty spot on with their ratings. it will still be plush but will also resist diving into the travel like the medium does
