well, you are riding the knolly with a spring for someone around 13 odd stone..
still only running a small amount of compression low and high speed its about how i would run it with a 400 spring anyway.

you cant 'even out' having too stiff a spring by simply running less damping.

whyd you want to change? just trying something else? tr450 has a more linear leverage curve to the knolly which has quite a ramp in the last bit of travel. so apart from your fatboy spring that might be the sluggish feeling youre getting.
i want to change for the sake of changing might end up just getting a set of new forks instead though

its not been anouced yet but orange are in the process of designing a carbon frame most likely a five and a 29er

would be so sick

orange just realeased the 29er five called the four (only has 4" travel) also they realeased a 29er hardtail and carbon road bike.

to be honest theyve dropped the travel to 4 but you might as well add another inch with those big wheels

the whole point is the extra 3" of wheel adds the 1" travel taken away from the shock/fork.

again,not uncommon, 888 stems can be used fine without mounting it to the crown if the steerer clamp has enough stack
