I have a question for you guys n gals on Hecklers.
I just picked up a small Heckler frame that I plan on using as an lighter FR / all mountain bike. I am short (5'5") and have a husky build and weigh 175lbs. The bike came with a 275lb 2.25" stroke spring on the 5th Element shock. I know that this spring is too light and according to Santa Cruz I should be running a 300lb spring. However I have noticed browsing the boards that people are often running springs on their Hecklers that are heavier than what Santa Cruz recommends.
Sooooooooo. What spring weight would you recommend for me and why?
I ride ladders and skinnies and will be doing drops to trannie up to 6' and gaps up to 12'. I live near the infamous 'SHORE' and may even take the bike to Whistler for a day or two. I am not a hack but I am not the smoothest rider either.
BTW I have a '04 Z1FR 5" on the front of the bike.
Thanks in advance.
