    Need help in choosing rear spring

    Hello,

    So I have a Haro DHR with a fox vanilla rc on the back. I want to make sure I am running the right spring for my weight (168lbs + gear). I am currently running a 500 x 2.8
    I mostly ride at Mt. Creek in N.J., Mt. Snow Vt. and Killington Vt.
    I haven't had any luck finding info online, so I have turned to MTBR.

    thanks in advance for your help.

    Took him 3 weeks to respond to an email so phone may be faster. He reccomended a 550x2.8 for me(220lbs w/ Demo 8). He responded the day my 600lb spring arrived.still feels soft for my weight but i have the DHX which has a ton of adjustments. good luck...
    I watch the O.C. cause it makes me happy...

    If misery was money i'd be the richest man on the planet.

    500 sounds right for your weight. (maybe a little high) Depends on what feel you want. I'm about 180 with gear and am running a 400 on a stinky supreme DHX to make it feel active on the small stuff.

    Then I have a 750 on my DJ so it can take hard hits.

    It's all about what feel you want.

    my opinion get a MZ ROCO thing blows the FOX Away. All the racers are getting their DHX Pushed to take out the pro-pedal (basicly turing them into a Getto ROCO)

    Read. Plug in the numbers. Add 20% or so for more aggressive riding.
