Looking for some advice as well as a potential trade.

Just got my bike. PO weighed about 35 lbs more than me (230 vs. 195) and had a set of racetech gold springs .95 installed. He recommended that I step down to .85.

I'm wondering if anyone here might be interested in a straight trade.
I'm also wondering if anyone weighing 195 has replaced their springs, and what spring rate they went with and how it feels.

i haven't yet checked my sag, which i know i ought to, but i couldswear just from eyeballing it when i relax onto the saddle that the front end of the bike doesn't budge... which doesn't seem likely. :confused:

if you mean bald, then yeah - as a bowling ball :mrgreen:

he told me to look you up; we're practically neighbors and i'd LOVE to get some tips on places to ride, or a guided tour of some of your favorites if you're feeling really generous :) (i'm hoping to explore the pine barrens some day - never been down there)

definitely want to pick your brain on some of the arduino stuff you've done - noticed that in another post of yours and i'm intrigued
