Had a ride on a Santa Cruz TRa kitted out with XX1 last weekend at Glentress. Although it was a tad too big for me, I pretty much fell in love with it. Light weight, peddled well and the XX1 was great to use, and the geometry felt great.
Unfortunate there's not a hope in hell of being able to afford one for quite a long time, so what bikes would you guys recommend as having a similar low and slack geometry with shortish rear travel and a bit more on the front?
Yeti ASR 5 springs to mind, but its also too much cash. Nukeproof Mega TR maybe? Any other ideas?
