Re: Sag saga for a lighter rider

LadyBerg, if you can get good figures with the stock shock spring, I think the stock fork springs should be ok. The difference between .44kg and 4.4nm is miniscule and will not be noticeable, imo. With the adjustable fork preload, you can just back it off a turn or so also. I say ride and break it in and see what you think?

So does anyone know the difference between the 4.4kgs and 4.4nm, because I'd like to know, and I do believe getting the balance right on this bike is very important, to how it handles.

Actually, it's 1 kg/mm = about 9.81 n/mm so 1n/mm = about .102 kg/mm (depends on how many digits you want to carry it out). So 4.4 n/mm = about .4486 kg/mm. That's closer to a .45 kg spring so if you put .44 kg/mm springs in you're going a little softer. I think you really need to make sure your supplier knows for sure how the spring is rated (especially if buying used) as this is easily confused and many of us Americans are used to ft.lbs. so we get even more confused!
