Upgrading the front forks. What springs to use?

Post by tubagod » Wed Mar 07, 2018 3:27 pm



I'm seeing various Traxxion options, Progressive Monotubes or springs. I'd like some guidance by those how have come before me with this quandary. I have had the Anti-dive shim since about day one of having my 2012 bike. Now I want to see what to do to not get the bottoming out feeling in the front. Besides, it's probably past time to get them serviced.

I'm a heavier rider (320#) and am looking for suggestions.

TIA.

It all depends how much money you want to spend.
