    If any one has they aren't sharing on the internet. The closest I've seen is the EWS racer that was running a Vivid Air.

    Here's a couple reasons why people probably aren't. 8.5 x 2.5 is a big shock with a heavy coil. The Spartan leverage rate curve was designed to match air spring characteristics. Progressive to linear to match air springs, digressive, linear, progressive, coils are linear.

    So if you want a coil to match you will need to know what you are doing to tune the coil for rate change. Not much help in the Cane Creek forum but worth a call to them. PUSH is probably the best as they have had the Spartan in their shop for testing and developed an 11-6 valving for it. I have a PUSH MX tune DHX coil that I am considering having them valve for the Spartan. I may sell this shock if you want to try this option or pick up a used one and send it in, still less than a CCDB but no climb switch.
