To get the most out of your Cane Creek coil shock, you need to select the right spring rate for your weight. So we've put this table together as a quick-reference guide.
Please Note it's important to use your total weight including all your riding kit, which for most riders will be something like 5-10kg more than your own weight.
To set up sag on a Cane Creek coil shock, the preload adjuster compresses the spring a little. Cane Creek recommend 1-6 turns, so there's a fair range of adjustment. Our recommended spring rates are all based on 3 turns and 30% sag for the sake of simplicity. If you're in between spring rates, you can fine tune things with preload. So you can run less preload and a heavier spring, or more preload and a lighter spring if you need to.
