    Ladies and Gents it destroys me to say it but after a spate of bad luck and personal money issues Sprungloaded is no longer.

    Doh, too slow

    TF for me.
    Ordered from one of pre order ads. Sold the wrong spring after asking which to get. So had to sell that to pre order from another pre order ad. Payed June 7th I cancelled last week fed up waiting. Ordered from TF Wednesday and it was here Friday. But it was a massive £5 extra with postage. 😉
    So from 1st order to receiving spring nearly 3 months and i could have had one of the shelf from TF.

    All I say is there is quite a difference in the quality of ti springs, I’ve recently seen some with flecks of corrosion in them (impurities ) and the overall finish was very bad, angle ground non square ends etc. along with rates that were up to 75lbs/inches out, you do get what you pay for.
    We have a some in stock in various sizes from 2″ to 3.5″ strokes, a proper webshop is under construction so not all stock is listed on the site ATM.

    Si.I know yours will be that price for a reason but have spent tooo much lately so yours are a bit out of my league at the mo.. 🙁
    But if there’s any stw discount offers about…lololol(joke)
    I,ll be sending a new van RC up to you Si for some more voodoo magic please squire but thinking about it i’d rather buy off you so may be biting the bullet.
    How does this work though…..
    If i do the spring calcs on tf,mojo and J-tech the results are.

    wieght – 140lbs
    stroke – 2″
    travel – 5.5

    TFt-(28% sag) 420 spring
    Mojo- 466 spring
    J-tech- 460 spring

    Tft’s one was right for me on my spicy and i got a 325 ti spring.Why the big difference in results.Just don;t want to get it wrong as it will be an expensive mistake.

    This one is for this… 😉

    Si.Can you shed some light on which spring i need please bud..
    Could i use a 400 x 2 Ti and just pre-load it a bit.
    Cheers…

    Hi Rob, sorry got involved with painting yesterday ( I hate painting)
    Anyway, yes you could run a 400, although I’m slightly concerned it maybe a bit too soft depending on your setup and how you ride, with a tune it’d be less of an issue as we can better match the shock to the spring compression wise, also with Titanium the spring can ‘feel’ softer although the rate is the same due to the way the TI works as a coil.
    A 450 maybe a safer option, we offer an exchange offer on the springs as long as there are no marks etc. As it’ll be clear fairly quickly if it’s too soft.
