    I'm 150 and ride stock springs. I feel like the soft springs would be too soft (at least for me) as I use full travel with the stock springs and I'm totally happy with how they perform.

    You need medium springs!

    I too am 145 -150lbs range and tried the soft, waaay too soft... tried one soft one medium... too soft... Ran one medium, one soft with 10wt oil... still too soft.

    I eventually settled on both medium with 7wt Ohlins oil... butter..... Really wish I held onto that fork
