    I need one too. I weigh 145 and had to switch to a soft spring in my 40. But I haven't been able to find a soft spring for the Travis.

    Yeah, my GF is riding a travis and at 130lbs and not super aggressive she's not getting much out of it. The fork isn't that old, I didn't expect it to be that hard to find some parts for.

    those forks were only made for something like 3 seasons. and its not surprising you are having problems finding parts, most of them needed repairs at some point, so whatever warranty/replacement parts mantiou had made were used up quickly (and this was before the hayes buyout)

    Put a WTB ad up on Pinkbike, I know somebody who recently found a firm spring that way.
