    I would quite like a prophet but sadly cant afford one at the moment not even yours. I think the with RP3 it would go nicely with some Pikes.

    I’ve not read any of what’s gone before, but I love my Hemlock with the wee rockers. I know what you mean about wanting to boost off the little lips – my old Prophet used to absorb them too. The Hemlock lets you boost off them though and I’m guessing that’s down to the progressive rate that Cy has designed in.

    Liteville 301 and build it up to suit. have friends that use them in XC races and others that have them as freeride bikes.

    or a liteville 901. light enough to go up hill and a beast on the downs.

    I do like Syndicates 4X.

    Ended up getting one of these in the end as it ticked all the boxes I was looking for…

    Now with Black Reba 120 maxle’s, Sram drivetrain, XTR brakes and white ST bar end caps.

    You mentioned the 4X but why not the LT version of the Blur – it will take a 160mm fork & can be built up pretty light. I run a Fox TALAS 140mm on mine which I drop for techy stuff & then reset to full travel when I need it. I have Hope Pro 3 wheelset with 180mm disks F & R with full XTR (flash I know but it was an Insurance payout so I thought what the heck) – all in weight is about 26.5lbs I think..

    Nice Rush. I guess you saw the review in DIRT?

    What size did you get?

    Went for a large and yes it was the review in Dirt that swayed me, done the 50mm stem and riser bars. Its exactly like they say. Only ever feels short of travel on very high speed rocky stuff but for most of what I do its great. Rode down some vertical stuff last thursday and it felt very capable and confident inspiring. Even managed a few jumps and drops, obviously I wouldn’t take it off any big stuff but for trail obstacles and popping it off natural jumps its great.
