If you had a national DH track on your doorstep…..
If i had a national dh track on my doorstep i’d be very happy! The 3 bikes id most likely have in my shortlist would be the commencal, a turner dhr, and the trek session 88. But there is just a shed load of choice out there… The new elsworth looks amazing as well. It does depend on your riding style a bit as wellPosted 8 years ago
lyons – interesting point about style.Posted 8 years ago
i’m a long time trail rider (20 + years !!!) , but need a bigger slacker bike for the DH course next door 🙂
The Nicolai and Chumba are proven designs.
the Nicolai is all about build quality and minimal maintenance….and I already own a Nicolai Helius which is exemplary….stevehSubscriber
twohats is right about sessions. I’d be wary if you plan to keep it a while.
I’d be looking at intense m6, santa cruz v10 or iron horse sunday. I’ve got a sunday and it’s the best dh bike I’ve ever had (including an intense m3 before it) corners like nothing else. If you’ve got a bit more of a budget there are some great prices/builds available on solid mission 9’s and plenty of people ride them pretty fast. A full solid can with good spec can be had for the price of a v10 frame!Posted 8 years ago0pt1calMember
Don’t be fooled with F.R.O label having ridden plenty of bikes…Intense build them tough and I’m 200lbs and ride my bikes hard….no complaints from me…not seen any issues with Socom or M6’s out on the hill…and I do see plenty of snapped, dented and cracked metal…if the 951 doesn’t work out I’ll buy the ION STPosted 8 years ago
