    Thanks for the info. I run a 450 on my Socom and I think its over sprung. What should I be running on my Socom?

    Has the spring rubbing the shock body been fixed? Or do all the shocks come with a sleeve now?

    I'm 180 and currently running a 400lb on the ccdb. I ran a 350lb spring, RS vivid, on the Socom.

    Well I am 195 lbs. without gear and I run a 350lbs spring on my CCDB. I think I am getting around 37% sag.

    Ok, since everyone else is asking...I'm around 145lb and running a Swinger X6 with a 400lb spring. Feels perhaps a little over-sprung...anyone recommend a 350lb spring?

    This thread is about the M6. Go get your own thread.
    There is a Socom spring thread with tons of info. You might do a search.

    Anyone else have spring info for the M6?

    Ok, ok. Fair enough. Steel springs aren't exactly expensive anyway.

    I weigh 70kg and I am running a 250 Ti spring on my CCDB, CC recommended 250 or 300, with the 300 i didn;t get 30% sag, so I went with the 250, and the sag is spot on,

    So, it sounds like a 350 or 400. Hmmm.

    Anyone else?

    dude....it is personal preference. Don't over analyze it, if the 350lbs spring sags the bike out too much call Cane Creek and they will send you a 400Lbs spring. It's that easy! Btw, I get 33% sag with a 350lbs spring and I weigh 195lbs. Keep in mind most spring fluctuate +/- 25lbs. (i.e. I got 37% sag with my 350lbs steel spring and 33% sag with my 350lbs Ti spring.)

    Thanks for the info but Id rather not deal with sending the spring back, but it looks like I have to.

    Intense sends out ALL their M6s with a 400 lb spring ONLY. If you need a different spring you have to send it to Cane Creek. You would think for a frame over $3k you could get the right spring to begin with.

    I called Cane Creek direct to find out what spring I should use after my M6 shipped with a 350lb spring which I though was a bit light (I'm 210). I have changed to the a 400lb spring after calling Cane Creek and am much happier with it. The longer leverage ration of the CCDB on the M6 means that you need to run much lower spring rates. 350lb will be the correct one for you if you follow the recommendations - after that its just personal preference. If you run a 400lb it will have much less sag

    I had a choice when I ordered mine. Intense was telling me 450 and Malcom at Cane Creek was telling me 350. At the time(May) not many people had the M6 so it was hard to get answers. Like I said I ended up going with a 400 and it is a hair oversprung for my 205lbs. I want to try a 350 to see what that feels like.
