Willh How much do you weight with gear?

I might be interested in that spring if you're selling. My correct spring rate is 18.1 kg/mm so I was going to ask if you just couldn't get the sag right with that spring rate (19.6kg/mm) or what.

We appear to be the same weight if you're going by the the racetech site. I'm not happy with the sag, I am running the stock 170/185. It wasn't too bad when I had shed some weight but I like beer so...
Using information found deep on this site and another one I've come to the conclusion that the racetech site calculator is probably right. I need the 180/185. My roads are crap so I'm hoping this will help.
My back is starting to give me problems. I need to smooth the bike out.

I changed to the same heavier spring, weight about 90 kg dry and was a sea change better.
