What is a GW spring? I find very little difference between the settings and would like to soften my ride. Can you provide a link or a part number for what you have? Do you have to change the shock as well?I really didn't find any difference whether it was on 2, or 20. In the end, I decided to change the spring to a GW progressive spring. The bike rides much better. I have the preload set to 2. I weigh 245lbs.
