Sting I'd tend to agree with you there. I got the same setup (10% springs from Adrian at Lewisport) and they feel much more than 10% stiffer than the stock limp noodle springs I took out. That's a good thing though, because I love it. I've given up some 1mph full-lock slippery condition traction at the front wheel but the improvement it's made in my ability to lunge (hop, levitate, whatever you want to call it... I'm not up on the terms yet) is tremendous. I fear no splatter now. Well, as long as it's not higher than, say, 5 feet. I'm still a newbie. :)
