    What do the leaves look like? Are they thin, or really thick? Are the ends tapered?

    Never heard of them, but those two little tidbits of info will give ya an idea.

    Seems like the correct question to ask is "Has anyone ever even heard of them! /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    Can you get supersize fries with your Macsprings, and more importantly...do they have a drive thru? /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Do the leafs alternate in color? Yellow, Red, yellow, red...

    That is the appropriate question, but so far no joy. If we know a little about the springs, then we can give out a little advice.

    Hmm, I just looked into my vault of spring info and if I did my calcs right, that 5/16", according to my top secret spring manufacture info I have locked up is just a tad thinner than the manufacturers springs. I'd have to say that maybe you are onto something.

    How many leaves are in the pack?

    As for going out of town, I couldn't though I should of. I had Blazerfest last week and a race to cover in Nevada next week. I knew as soon as I woke up this morning I should have headed to the hills with the other NCBD boys that are going.

    I thought he meant the Mack Camelbacks.

    There is no way he'd want those back breakers! /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    One more question, what's the spring rate? Sounds like to me that maybe it would be kind of low.

    I'd try them. Got any more info on them like $$$$$?
