More a musing than looking to buy one but it’s something I have looked at before.
There are plenty of lightweight, racey, fast paced looking 100mm travel frames around but what about one that you can run a longer fork on and just arse about with?
I had a Hemlock a while back but didn’t get on with it. I also had a Meta 4 but this was too long and lardy and with 140mm Pikes on seemed a bit of a chore.
The only option that really stands out is for a 4X frame but then you’re compromising on a frame that you can actually ride distances.
So if you ride a BFe, Apline (Dialled) or something like that but want a bit of travel at the back (but not too much) what options are there?
