Having read around a bit it seems quite a few people reckon the Mega works well with a coil shock.
I've managed to get hold of a second hand Fox Van RC which I've now fitted to the Mega.
It came with a 550 x 2.35 Fox spring, which seems to be a bit firm for me (I have given it an outing in the alps, but ended up switching back to an air shock).
I weight 74kg without riding gear, so I imagine nearer to 80kg once wearing my kit.
I've done the online calculator which seems to put me between a 400 & 450 spring.
Before I start experimenting with different springs does anyone have any experience with a coil shock on the Mega - if so what spring did you go for for your weight?
