Hey, it can't hurt to ask.

Thanks for the tip on the springs. I definitely need to do something as the front is far too soft. I am planning on doing a fair amount of dirt 2up riding, and am going to get the suspension tuned. I was just hoping to save a few bucks. I'm a long legged 6'2" and can easily balance the standard bike.
