I weigh 270 or at least I did when I bought my 530.

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.
