I have received this info!
Received this e-mail today...sounds promising.
"Yes. But you need a crazy tool to do it so you'll have to send me your
shock. Also I need your spring so I can check the rate, that is my
starting point. The new spring will be dark red, $110 + shipping.

Proper spring rate is important to keep the shock body and valving system in the 'sweet spot' of the shock. A spring that is too soft and the shock valve mechanism is already past the 'small bumps in the road' portion of its stroke and is entering the 'big bump' section of its damping forces. Thats a harsh ride.
A spring too stiff and, well we know what that feels like. Since the stock shock doesnt have a pre load adjustment on the collar of the shock, I will have to let Lindemann do his math and come up with the proper rate for my weight and riding styles.
For my amount of miles, the value of the bike, and my riding styles, A new spring is all that will fit my budget. I will investigate the revalving though, since he will have the shock there.
