    RFX spring rate?

    Thinking of trying out either a Roco of DHXc 5 on my '07 RFX while the RP23 goes to PUSH but wanted to confirm spring rate. I'm a big fella, 245ish geared up, so I think I'm looking at a 700lbs spring to get between 25 - 30% sag? No huge drops, this bike is my crutch after all, but I can bottom the RP23 HV with about 210psi no problem if I botch a landing.

    Thanks homies.

    *edit* while I'm asking questions, DHX springs fit a Roco? Just looking at what go-ride has available in fat guy spring weights.

    It looks like 700 would be about right.

    Check this spring rate calculator: Mountain Bike Spring Rate Calculator V4.0

    And I believe that a DHX spring will fit the Roco. I have a Manitou spring on mine and it fits just fine.
