The coil spring provides a smooth consistent feel 100% of the time with 0% of any hassle.

Optional Springs for Dorado Comp (sold separately)
The Dorado Comp comes stock with the Medium Coil Spring (blue), it is far too soft for most Surron riders and you'll need to purchase a stiffer set of springs. Use the tuning chart below to determine the correct spring rating for your body weight, bike, and riding style. If you are a fast aggressive rider you might want to go up one size in springs.
NOTE: Charged Cycle Works has modified this weight chart to include the extra weight of the surron so all you have to do is use the first column of your body weight (including gear) to select the correct spring rate. NOTE riders approaching 200lbs with gear should not purchase this fork (Sorry Brian), you are better off with an air fork which can ramp up to higher weight support as there is no spring option available for your weight.
|Weight (lbs)||Rate||Stripe Color|
|110-133||Medium||Blue (Stock Spring)|
Installation Instructions for Surron:
Out of the box this fork will not fit the surron steer tube with the 1" tall roller bearing adapter that comes on the OEM surron. You must swap your upper headset to a Cane Creek 40 ZS44/28.6 or similar zero stack headset (NOT INCLUDED) which reduces the steer tube length by approximately 1/2". It his highly recommended you take this to your local bike shop for proper installation!! Most of the bikes that come into our shop with aftermarket forks were not installed correctly and by installing this yourself you might cause permanent damage to the fork, your bearings, headset, surron frame, or even your body! This is not something you want to risk by DIY if you are not an experienced bike builder. DO NOT CHANGE YOUR LOWER HEADSET BEARING, YOU WANT THE STRENGTH OF THE OEM SURRON LOWER BEARING.
Installation Instructions for Talaria:
The Dorado does not fit the Talaria without removing the large spacer on the bottom of the head tube. This is not recommended as it will drop the front of the bike by almost 1" negatively affecting the bike geometry. We are working on a solution for Talaria and do not have one at this time.
