    2012 operator with standard issue suspension right now. Van rc with only compression adjustment. 300 lbs spring (155 lb rider)

    Question is.. I want to upgrade to a double barrel or the double barrel air? I dont know very much about leverage ratios and progressive or linear talk. I know it all exists.. But im still ignorant.

    However. I DO like dialing in my rides. Twisting knobs and trying different things. Spring rates and rebound and tires and pressure. So im not 'afraid' of having a shock more sophisticated than myself (mid pack amatuer racer)

    Does the air version match up well with the kona suspension? The weight savings doesnt matter a whole lot to me.

    The coil is gold so itll match the bike :-)D)

    Thoughts? Thanks...
