Spring rate has nothing to do with "feel". It has everything to do with math. My Raga came with .30 springs stock.If I put one 10% stiffer spring in the total spring rate increase for both fork legs is to .315.[.30+.33 divided by 2].If I put two 10% stiffer springs in I would end up with a rate of .33.[.33+.33 divided by 2]. Yes, I do feel better now.
