    Spring Rate for a 220lbs rider

    I'm thinking about upgrading my rear Float shock into a coil. I'm looking at the Rocco and I just wanted to know what size springs should I get for my total weight???
    RESIST OR SERVE!!!

    It will vary from bike to bike because the suspension geometries are different. Some will compress a shock 0.3 inches to move the rear wheel 1 inch. Others will compress the shock 0.5 inches to move the rear wheel 1 inch.

    Anyway, here is a calculator to give you a good idea: http://www.mojo.co.uk/springcalc.html
