    spring weight for 210lb rider on sgs team

    Can anyone recommend how i should set up the 6 way on the sgs team. I am 210lbs and want the shock to be as plush as possible, not too worried about pedalling.

    What spring weight do I need, preload, PSI etc.

    Any help appreciated

    I have found a spring calculator. Mountain Bike Spring Rate Calculator V4.0

    How progressive is the suspension on the DH team?
