    I have a firm spring that I'd sell. But that's the stock spring so I think your looking for the extra firm.

    Actually, you are correct. Sorry for the misinformation.

    The Red Spring is stock. There are Blue (firm) and Black(extra firm) springs avaliable. I replaced the Red in mine with a Blue which made it much better for me (190 lbs). While my teammate changed out to a black (he's 200 lbs).

    See the spring chart at:

    My Pike is pretty close for my weight out of the box.

    How stiff is your psylo? I'm trying to make it pretty good for dirt jumping.

    It was fairly stiff. But if you want to dirt jump, you want it super stiff to not absorb the jump, correct?

    The springs are $31. If your wrong, you will not be out too much cash.

    AE Bike has the Quality catalog live on their website. You can buy the springs from any shop that has a quality account.

    i have a psylo xc that came stock with the soft spring, so I switched it out for an extra firm set and it's great. It still is pretty bouncy with that spring but not nearly as bad. as ChrisKring said, it's 30 bucks so you wont be out that much
