2000 Schwinn Rocket 88 - spring chart?
I have a friend who needs to update her shock on her 2000 Rocket 88. I'm thinking of recommending a coil-over (which she has now) for ease of setup/maintenance vs. air. However, I don't have a spring chart for those bikes. Does anyone have the chart showing the recommended weights-n-rates for that bike? Thanks!
How is that frame doing? I have that frame and it hangs up on the wall because the bushings around the BB are worn out. Can you still find parts for them?
I've used this spring rate calculator before:
Probably the best bet is to pick up a '01-'02 on eBay where they got rid of the bushing and went with bearings. Aside from that, you might want it hit up the Sweetspot parts thread and see if the bushing supplier has anything to fit the Rocket 88.
Cool link, thanks!
David: Her frame is doing ok. Her husband checked the bushings, and they are still good. You can occasionally find them online (Ebay, etc.) if you look hard and are patient.
