    I often ride the red route at my local trail centre – I ride a 7″ travel Santa Cruz Bullit, wear body armour and a full face helmet.

    (NB, my local trail centre is Fort William)

    Alpine 160 will do anything, so will a Five AM – leaves you set up for the Alps too. You might not get to the top of every climb first, but who cares if you’re not xc racing? Besides, with a reasonably fit rider, these bikes climb great. You won’t spend hours fixing them either, and they’re superb downhill on any terrain.

    Im currently having the same dilema, ive a perfectly good Ghost AMR with 120mm travel that is superb but… i want to start doing some mini dh so trying to decide if i should get the Canyon Strive.

    There’s no set rule – ride what works for you. Anyone who tells you otherwise is talking rubbish. I have a hardtail and a 160mm full suss, overall prefer the 160mm full suss – faster, more traction and therefore more efficent.
