In both of these cases the change of the spring preload had a dramatic effect on the behavior of the spring, so the conclusion is that to even think that all that spring preload does is changing the sag appears to be completely false.

Its not really that simple....but yes,it will affect how the bike rides because you need to overcome the set preload before the spring will move.... all other things being equal, more preload is a harsher ride
