If it is 235 ready to ride then the pds 4 will give you about the right bike sag[115-120 mm] and rider sag[135-140mm]with about 6-8 mm of preload. I had .52 in my dunes bike but it is unridable anywhere else it is so stiff.Before I would try stiffer springs in front I would put the fork tubes all the way down to the top of the fork cap to raise the front end a little.Then try using 2.5 wt. fork oil at 130mm from the top.That way you get plusher action on the little stuff and even with the lighter fork oil it will stiffen up more toward the end of the travel.Then try going to my lower sag numbers[120mm and 140mm].The pds 4 has plenty of stiffness to keep it from bottoming.
