- Changing spring rate on an Orange 5
I’m 14st and was surprised to find out that I weighed over 15st with light summer riding gear and a half full bladder (the one in the camelback that is :roll:).
I’ve been through the same process with my Five & RP23 BV after getting sick of blowing through the travel too easily.
Start with the medium spacer and see how you like that.
Eventually, I thought “sod it” and got a CCDB instead but now I’m stuck in the faffing cycle trying to get that “just right”.Posted 4 years agoworsMember
I’m 14 1/2 stone (probably more like 15 with camera, bladder etc) kitted up, setting the shock at 25% sag i seem to be bottom out the travel quite a lot.
Has any of the heavier riders changed the spring rate, and what size spacer did you use?
The shock is a RP23 BV.
