question on spring rates


which do you think would work out better,

a spring (shock and/or fork) rate that is 10% stiff and run less preload, or 10% soft and run more preload?

just curious.

a preloaded spring acts like a stiffer one until it gets deep into the travel, good for holding up the bike in the stroke but still working well over trees,rocks etc, this would not be a good setup for doing sx....

Stiffer10% with less preload works better:ride: Better traction and better on your back!
