Help me find the perfect frame…please??
Hello after coming back from the pyrenees I am looking at my current bikes and wondering if I should reassess my bikes and what i do. I currently have a titus supermoto set up with 160mm Fox forks and 150mm rear travel with a 67 HA and 68 Seat angle. I love the way it descends, mega confidence inspiring, it is a good climber but at 36lbs wears me down after 4 hours riding. I also have a Yeti asr-sl with 100mm forks weighing in 26 lbs but could make lighter, been great in the pyrenees, outstanding climber but not great going downhill, I seemed to get buffetted off lots of stuff.Posted 8 years ago
So I am looking for a frame new or older frame that I can pick up cheap or second hand that will weigh in around 28 to 29 lbs, descend well and be a good climber. As a rider I ahve a few injuries so would say I am a trail rider I will do a few drops but am no hucker,I will err on the side of caution but I am a descent climber possibly my strongest point, looking for an all day bike that will take in the ups and help me on the downs. I need full suss due to back and neck problems. I love the Supermoto for its descending qualities but it really is too much bike for me, would make a great alps bike, the Yeti is too racy for me but it helped me survive long days in the pryenees last week both on road and off.
Recommendations welcome…………..or should I stay ith what I got???!!!jebMember
Totally stunning, i owned,ellsworth ID, nomad, intense5.5, Blur LT, just fitted it with CK wheels, pike team air, fox rp2, it pedals crazy fast, best climber i had(maybe the nomad was just as good) and its slack headtube, is super when pointing the bike down.Posted 8 years ago
Just get it.rjMember
That’s a lot of recommendations. Not ridden many of them, but I have recently tried a Trek Remedy and found it superior to my Meta 5 in every way. Light, climbs well and I descended faster than I’ve ever done in my life (which is a leisurely pace for anyone else). I’m struggling to justify a Nomad over the Trek and I’ve always wanted a Nomad.Posted 8 years ago
