(middle of page)...should I stick with stock because I usually use the bike for play riding and commuting...rarely with overnight gear which would put me into the 200lb range?
Just planning what I need to rebuild and set up my suspension.
I went to racetech.com, and they have a calculator that will ask you three or four question, weight, riding stile, and some other shit. It told me, 240lb fat ass, 49 front and 12 rear. I called a couple of places and they told me the same thing.
