    About to Purchase 05 Coiler Deelux :) need advice

    Hey kona riders out there, i'm about to purchase an 05 coiler deelux. I currently own a 03 dawg deelux and just love the coiler series, Anyone with this bike want to help me set it up correctly since this will be my first experience with the DHX shock from fox? There's so many ajustment but such a smooth ride anyway. I am getting and 18 frame size. i weight around 195. I believe the coil on shock is 550. i do mostly like 4-7 foot drops with lots of riding inbetween. thanks anyhelp would be greatly appreciated.

    Spring size..............

    I am 200 lbs and I had to get a 750 lb spring for my Coiler. The stiffer spring made the bike pedal better.
