    your 2010/2009 SX-Trail spring rate?

    hey guys

    just built up a 2010 SX-Trail, and i'm super stoked on the bike! However, the stock 600 spring that comes on the Large is a bit too soft for my weight. I'm getting about 40-45% sag with it.

    I am around 205 all dressed up to ride.
    If there are any similar sized SX-Trail riders out there, what spring rate are you guys running to get perfect sag?

    Your input is much appreciated

    What size did you end up going with? Mine came with a 550 spring and I'm also getting about 40% sag (I weigh 180 with gear). Not sure if I should go with a 600 or 650 weight.

    Anyone else?

    I have a 2009 SXT and I am running a 650lb spring, also went harder on the front coil as well. I weigh about 95kgs, with gear. Sag is about 30%. Use mine mostly for trail riding and light freeride stuff.

    I'm about 190# with gear...

    600# DSP Ti Spring, at 160 psi in boost

    30ish% sag

    I roll the propedal all the way stiff on the way up, the opposite on the way down.
