Amsterdam....

- Rijksmuseum
- van Gogh Museum
- red light district
- Heineken museum
- city centre
- Haarlem: indoor circuit www.machheemstede.nl
- Leiden: Naturalis (one of the largest collection historic wildlife)
- Zandvoort: racetrack and beach
- Zaandam: there is a small 19th century village

Just PM me if you are looking something specific (I do live about 35km from Amsterdam)

I'm searching spring rates and I found 2 different spring rate chart, but they are not match each other...:-/

MRX-4X
Grey front as 37.2 (really old chart, dated 2004)

MRX-4X
Grey front as 42.2 (I think this is more recent)

Anyone got better idea which one is closer to actual?

The second one, Paul used an actual tester to determine these rates, not manufacturer claims or calculations based on the specs. Those are actual, real world rates.

Any chance to know the "actual" spring rate of lighter spring? Purple/LightBlue/Blue?

Looking at the other chart, they are spot on as far as the order is concerned. The difference in actual rate is probably just a different tester or testing method.

If you are trying to compare them to springs that are not on either chart, you're going to have to make a tester and try it for yourself.
