    Ti Spring?

    I'm thinking of putting a Ti spring on my 06 RFX. I have a 600lb steel spring that works well for my riding sytle and weight. Does anyone know what lb Ti spring would be close to a 600lb steel spring? It will be going on a Fox DHX.
    Also has anyone ever used a Ti spring from these guys...

    Hookler, I just put a DSP ti spring on my DW 5 Spot, the rate was the same as the steel spring. They shipped it out the same day.

    Cheb, are you running a Fox shock? Is there any play with the DSP spring on the shock? I read a review of the DSP springs that said there was play with Fox shocks, although it supposedly doesn't affect anything. So curious how yours feels. Thx.

    Before you pony up the dough on a Ti spring, swing by a MX shop and get them to rate your Fox coil. Fox coils run a tolerance of +/- 15%, which for a 600lb spring would mean it could be anywhere between 510 and 690lbs.

    Before you diagnose yourself with depression or low self-esteem, first make sure that you are not just surrounded by a*holes

    Did you weigh the spring? Was the claimed weight (as listed on their site) accurate?
