The Bolt is a bit of a porker & I think only 4" but those Soda look very nice
Orange Blood alternatives
The whole thing about the Blood was that it was stiff and strong and built like a downhill bike and so it was heavy but didn't have much travel and so they only sold about 10 (unsurprisingly because most people think it is rubbish and pointless). But, if you get it, very low, very slack and tough then you love it. There is nothing good about them except they are great fun to ride. If I was only allowed only one bike (God forbid) it would be this one.
Always wanted a blood, but the 27.2 seatpost put me off.
Have a look at the chumba xcl. Shit customer service, great frame.
A Cove perhaps?
Owned a blood, nomad and nomad 2, all really similar feeling with the nomads having a bit more travel / plush
All great fun, still own the blood if that has any meaning
Yt industries play?
Yeah if you're worrying about weight you dont know what you want.
The bolt is a brilliant frame.. it's no slouch.
There are some 853 bolt prototypes floating around. I am very excited
