I was undecided between black or white for a long time and actually held a white spring I still had laying around from another bike next to the Sled. It's more the theme of the bike I'm looking at than the spring/shock standing out.
I dropped it off this morning, black it's going to be.
Just to clarify, you removed the lower mounting point so the entire shock assembly could swivel, used a spring compressor to remove the perch, and then slid the spring off the shock, correct? I was a little misled when you said you could do it without removing the shock, and was like. . . how is that even possible lol
