    I'm ordering a RS vivid 5.1 next week and I think I'm gonna go with a ti spring but I'm having trouble finding Ti springs with a 1.5 ID. Anyone know where to get one?

    I thought the Avy ones were the correct size but I just wanted to confirm it. The RCS springs on Go-ride say they are 1.43 ID.

    The avy ones will fit, there will (last I heard) be ti springs specifically for the vivid soon.

    You could also try calling RCS directly.

    Is RockShox bringing out Ti springs for these at all?

    Good advice - unless you're absolutely positive on the spring rate you need, ride the steel one first to make sure it's the rate you want before you drop $230 on a Ti coil.
