while we're on the subject - can any of you tell me what spring rating I need to stiffen mine up sufficiently. I weigh about 84kgs (13st) and find the 600lb spring too soft - how much should I go up by? I think the shock is the stock Aftershock. Also what is the effect on the geometry and/or travel of moving the shock up and down the ladder?

I'd have guessed that was your bike Ed - stem,seatpost and gripshift combo! Nice - always wanted to try a San Andreas.
