If coil rates baffle you or you want to verify your current set-up this is the calculator for you.

Press on the orange bar to expand it then enter the suspension leverage value yourself or by pressing Help! which will guide through the process. Notice the blue results bar now displays the wheel frequency. Press on the bar to display the results in more detail.
