I never tried coil type springs, but I did put hairpin springs on my bike once...they didn't seem to do much...

But, they look pretty darn cool.

The load bearing capacity of the hairpins is waaaay less than the coil type.
One ride on mine and I switched'em out to coils because they bottomed out on every bump. But I ain't exactly scrawny either.

I only use hairpins. I found the coil springs to be too bouncy and they sloshed around side to side too much for my liking.

Shakedown88, where did you get your seat? or is it something you did up yourself?
