I set it up with EE springs, as the famous Allan Randt picked up the phone when I called for advice.
50 fork springs:
and 9.6 Straight rate rear:
I'm happy with a click or two of extra rebound damping and a 25ml extra fluid in each fork leg as I was still bottoming the forks once I started pushing it.
