The Hemlock came with 100mm rocker and a reasonably slack headangle.
Orange - why no short travel 26" single pivot bike?
this works for me, pivot m4x
very low, very slack. r 100 f 120, 12.7/66 ish longish front/short rear
Got one coming for a test ride to replace my 5
Hmmm... That St4 looks familiar on eBay...
The superlight isn't particularly slack is it?
I always thought the Saracen Ariel should have gone to 120 not 160
rocks don't always make for good trails.
Peak district springs to mind
.......... there is zero flow...
There's plenty of flow, you just need to ride them quicker.
Can be difficult when the trails are clogged with out-of townees minceing down them complaining about a lack of 'flow' though. :p
Orange used to make the Blood - 127mm rear travel, slack, low, tough.
Best bike I owned up to the point it got nicked....
OOOhh look a thread for the same old names to spout the same old bollocks.
How very STW.
Just maybe some one wants to ride a bike that you don't.
No need to try and make yourself look big by trying to shoot them down in flames because you can't see a use for what they want.
Though i'm sure there are a few bikes out there that aren't made out of old filing cabintets that fit your bill OP.
I have a Superlight with 120 Reba's full XT and Hope hubs and Stan's rims 70 degrees headtube and 25.5 lbs. Just brilliant cope's with all the UK mud and all the trails and singletrack I ride and totally bullet proof a real classic they always say in the mags.
Morewood Zula - soon to be available in 650b as well.
Well I built my old Turner Burner up (although obviously not a single pivot) & It's not as slack as I would like, it also has a very high bb & not much stand over height. I have only given it a spin but I don't think it will be a bike I will enjoy, but a low travel FS is on the wish list, I'm just undecided if it should be a 26, 650 or 29er, this choice malarkey just isn't fun considering the money involved
