    KS Axis shock spring replacement

    The KS Axis shock spring on my 700DS is way too stiff (850lbs). Does anyone know a source for a different (softer) spring?

    Thanks!

    Look on the big 700 thread, I think it's all there. I actually lucked out and found one on e-bay. Then I upgraded to a decent air shock. If you can afford that, that's the way to go.

    Rock Shox MC 3.3. Picked it up brand new off e-bay for $95. What ever you get, make sure it has an adjustable platform feature, i.e. Rock Shox's Motion Control, Fox's Pro-Pedal etc. I wouldn't bother getting an air shock without it.
