Thanks for the responses.
Basically some of the black runs at Degla are pretty rough, and I had a go on my mates full susser and it felt nice. I'm not an amzing rider, but I pedalled everything at Degla, which wil be important with a full susser. Can't say the same for some other folk there, too many Bronsons and Orange 5s being pushed!
I am happy on my HT round Cannock, with 140 Revs, yes there are a lot of braking bumps, but I hit everything as fast as I can. At degla I found myself scrubbing speed off, but I've never been before so didn't know what was the other side of jumps etc.
Why Santa? Well I just love them, but I am happy to hear of any other frames people would like to recommend.
