- Best Short Travel FS Frames
I’ve got a Kona Four Supreme frame for sale if you are interested ? Only selling ’cause i bought a Spicy in the Summer and now have too many bikes !18 in with a Fox RP23 shock that has been recently serviced by TF tuning .Still built up but can be stripped in next to no time .Actually been out on it today and still like the way it rides but room has to be made !I’m after £300 plus postage (or pick up if nearby ) for it and it’ll come with an FSA headset as well .Posted 8 years ago
If you are interested e mail me at

just wondering what else was around. I don’t think I’d fancy a big bouncy bike.
I thought like that as well, but I was out on a LaPierre Zesty at the weekend and it was surprisingly good. Not too heavy, climbed really well and obviously made mincemeat of the stuff I’d have been walking down with my Prongy. Also had a shot on a Morewood Zula with 100-130mm forks, which was very good too.Posted 8 years ago
you might miss having to bend down to use the propedal lever though…Posted 8 years ago
giants good, but the OP did ask for best…
check out the first user review on mtbr for the Anthem X0:
“great suspension when combined with RP23, climbs very well though not as well as DWlink frames”
and you don’t get the RP23 with the X4.
“Not as stiff as others”
“there are weaknesses such as mentioned above and wide side to side flex at the rear triangle”
“The Mach 4 also pedals like a hardtail while this one needs the propedal on to be almost like a hardtail.”
Never put propedal on with the flux and it never bobs, even out of the saddle.
Frame weighs a lb more than the giant though, so the build will be more expensive for a light weight.
The Giant is outstanding for a cheaper build though.Posted 8 years agomeesterbondSubscriber
I picked up an Intense Spider FRO for a pretty reasonable sum from the classifieds a month or two back. Climbs really well and although I’m still adjusting the suspension etc I’m already loving the VPP…
I’m not sure there is a ‘best’ out there, but it’s started me thinking about a Tracer when I come round to replace my 5 Spot..Posted 8 years ago
