Bicycle Fork Guide
Spring, sag, damping, and travel are all words used in conjunction with bicycle suspension. The spring is most often a coil spring, and is used to absorb jarring shocks. Air filled shocks are often used instead of coil springs because of their light weight. Sag refers to the amount of give the suspension has; how much it lowers under the weight of the rider. Damping refers to the speed of the spring. Travel is the total distance the suspension can move. More travel generally allows for bigger bump absorption, but less efficient pedaling energy.
