    No. The spring has to be matched to the stroke of the shock (not travel of the bike). And you'll have to calculate the appropriate spring rate.

    Go to your LBS, they can order you the appropriate spring. They are not cheap.

    Renton makes Ti springs....again, not cheap. They are available thru BTI if your LBS can get them. No idea if they are cheaper than an Answer spring.

    Yeah, and the Manitou spring is just a Renton spring with the Manitou name on it. Renton will have them in stock, anyone else will probably have to special order it in. Just order direct from Renton (RCS).
    People wait for me on the way up. I wait for them on the way down.
