    Think they'd find it odd if some of them went straight to Darren's address?

    The SC clearance website is always such a tease. If you check the actual items the quantity always appears as out of stock. Sucks.

    I think I did, unless I missed one somehow. I didn't check any of the 5th elements for what I consider obvious reasons....

    EDIT: well, I just ordered a 300# so we will see if it comes.

    I'm gonna need a larger spring

    Who can point me to the formula used to calculate the proper spring for a 250# rider? I found this one but I get a really weird value.

    As of right now anyway.

    Depends on the bike it's going on. For a Spot or RFX I'd say either a 700 or 750# spring, but you can also checkout http://www.tftunedshox.com/tech-area...alculator.html.

    Guess there were a few still available. Skunkty + interwebz=fail.

    That calculator did the trick, thanks. I get a value of 700. The MOJO calc gives a value of 750#. I think I'll look for a 700#. Yep, going on an RFX.
