Shock datum

So these are the build sheets from Wilbers, just for fun.



I measured the amount of preload on the springs currently as best I could, from the thin shim on top of the spring, to the top of the threaded area, just at the bottom edge of the cap at the shock top, and in both cases, I measured 10mm additional preload then what appears on the build sheets. Again, not CERTAIN that I'm measuring exactly what they measured, but it makes sense to me.

The spring rates are here too. I'm #230 soaking wet, probably #240 or more in my gear, ready to ride. What do you think Roger?
