    Springs for vivid 5.1

    having to decide whether or not to sell my Ti spring or the pushed Dhx5 with the Ti spring and starting from scratch, i came across the recent reviews of the vivid 5.1. after searching for a UK price i saw chain reactions offering superb price but with no spring or bushes. called them up and asked what springs they had which would fit. i was told manitou springs would be fine . luckily i called tf tuned to discuss the price of having the dhx retuned for my weight and find out the tec is trying out a vivid(not likey likey too much but admitted it needs to be set up correctly still), so i axed him about the spring and was told only a RS spring would fit . if thats true then i am glad i didnt place the order with CRC and it doesnt help if CRC are selling vivids with no option for springs. i will try and contact uk SRAM supplier and find out whats what, or it'll defo be selling the Ti spring to pay for retuningg the dhx.
    I just want to ride.

    Vivid uses larger diameter shock body AFAIK to fit large o-rings and seals, so I would guess only RS Springs fit.

    If you do go with a Vivid and want a Ti spring check out www.obtainiumperformanceproducts.com they will ship worldwide.The Vivid uses a 1.5"ID. or 38.1mmID.TFtuned and Pushindustries are working on customtunes for the Vivid.
