What were the coiled spring/colour designations?

....red was standard (medium)

I have a set of "blue" - were these hard or soft?

Well - long story. I picked up some rc36 with red in (thought these were regular medium spings - I cant imagine that pace would have fitted soft spings as standard) but after taking the my current proclass apart - I realised that these were red too.

My old pair of springs that I originally took out years ago were blue. so I popped these in thinking somewhere along the line I must have got mixed up. So now I have blue springs in and they feel no different.

Arrggh.

Blue = soft?
Red = medium?
Illuminous yellow with pink spots = hard?

Gawd - I think they are a different fork to mine - mine are the original coil sprung RC36 (a bit simpler than that!)
