- Recommend me a 140mm(ish) travel FS frame.
A vote for Blur LTc. Some may consider the geometry ‘old-school’ but I went from a ‘New-school’ geometry ASR5, to the LTc, and haven’t cared one bit. I think people get too hung up on all that crap to be fair. The LTc with 150 revs has a 68 HA anyway so its not like its vertical or anything! I can confirm that it rides superbly, a massively capable bike, that can really take big hits and drops, but still pedals well enough to fly on the flat and uphill. In fact I find it a far better climber than my ASR5, with far less pedal bob. I just can’t ride it enough!Posted 4 years agoAndreyEMember
Ticks many, many boxes. Rides very nice and very capable, and extremely future proof.
Can be set up with either 32, 34, or 35-6 stanchion forks, can have 140 or 160 mm travel with the same shock (different rocker plates), even accepts 650 wheels in sizes M and above.
And – have I mentioned it rides very nice and is very capable? And I’ve ridden Turner DW Spot, Pivot Mach 5/5.7, Mojo HD and loads of other top bikes.Posted 4 years agotheraggyoneMember
