Plushest FS bike under 30lbs?
I love my Pitch.
It’s only under 30lb if I let it, it’s uusaly 35 or so. Still ride it all day, the 30lb limit is/was MBR nonsense.Posted 6 years ago
Not the greatest climber in the world, although it will go up some pretty rocky stuff with ease.
Others don’t like it.BreganteSubscriber
I find the Helius CC very plush – much more so than the Giant Anthem X. It’s buttery smooth and you simply don’t notice it working.
Oddly, I was just about to post the same. I’ve just come from a 150mm travel to a Helius CC with the same RP23 fitted to it and I am just astonished at how good the rear suspension is. Mine, with some fairly bog standard kit on it is 29lbs.Posted 6 years agomaxrMember
Thanks guys – there’s an Ellsworth dealer not far from here, I’ll try an Epiphany when they have a demo day (I nearly bought an Ellsworth Truth instead of the Tomac, can’t remember why not now). This is for mostly XC riding (no racing) with some roots and rocks – Surrey Hills.

Got to agree with the ninja there, you sometimes have to look down and check the rear suspension is actually moving on a Nicolai Helius CC.
Can easily be built to well under 30lbs too, with enough cash / careful part selection 25lbs isn’t out of the question. Not bad for a 130/140mm trail/XC bike when you think about it.Posted 6 years agoKryton57Subscriber
+1 for the El Saltmontes, plushest bike I’ve ridden.
The Transition Bandit was VERY comfortable too, good climber and superb going down, in fact I’m still mulling over buying that, albiet the Rutland ASR-5 thread has muddied my thinking process…. (though I’m not after plushest, but the most efficient in my case).Posted 6 years ago
