I've been using Rockshox Psylo XCs for a couple of years and I've always thought the standard (red) spring was too soft for me, even though according to Rockshox I'm the right weight for it - 175lbs. I can get the firm blue spring or black extra-firm one, but don't know which would be best. Anyone who's swapped springs got any advice? Or, since I only ride XC rather than big drops and stuff, am I better off keeping the red one after all? I've never noticed it bottom out harshly, it just seems that after sag's taken care of there isn't much travel left.
OR ... my LBS has an 03 Fox Talas RL which he'll let me have for £350 (RRP £550). Is this too much of a bargain to pass up? Would the Fox be hugely better than the Psylos, or would I be better off spending the money on something else?
