My rebuilt Cogent rear shock arrived last night with a used stiffer yellow Ohlins spring. It sure looks like tom c's spring. It has a nick in the paint where is was rubbing on his bike

Rick and Joyce are great to work with at Cogent

I even got a roll of Lifesavers......

LOL! Max BMW gives you packs of M&Ms. The higher the $ amount, the more packs you get.

I went from a 350# spring to a 400# spring and what a difference. It may be just a tad stiff on the street without gear (not as plush for the tush) but it will be perfect off road and/or with full camping gear.

I guess I'll check the sag later when I can get an assitant to measure.

Since the spring was used I'm assuming the lifesavers were "pre-sucked".

Did that wad of wintergreen that hit you in the chest while you were riding turn you against it?

No what I'm sayin?
