    New question here. Romic coil need lighter weight. fit different length?

    The Romic on my new bike is 550lb 2.0", but I can't get enough sag with the coil barely preloaded. The 550lb is the lightest 2.0" Romic I can find. The 2.25" coils come in many different weights. Can I use the longer spring?

    500lbs x 2.25 is the next spring

    Great. Ok, so if I can only acheive 8% sag with a 550lb coil, how do I determine what lower weight to get if I want 20-30% for xc? Is there a calculator for this, or is it trial and error?

    Davide- I'm interested in your offer, how much are you asking?

    Confirimed by Brian at Romic, it is OK to use the 2.25 spring.
