What 160mm (ish) FS frame?
Not sure about the Blur but 140mm would be fine travel wise, Covert not sure about either although I’m guessing the Mojo HD would be much like my DW 5 Spot (but lighter and more travel) so might be worth tracking down a ride on one of those, although it’s £2400!! I didn’t plan on selling an organ to fund it.
Trying to get a test ride on the Nicolai is going to be a struggle I think and same for the Rocket (without travelling 200 miles north), already had a go on my mates SB66 which i really liked.
and yes the Devinci does look wrong in carbon, in ally though looks OK.
El Guapo – yes stupid value for money but I’ve already got the kit to go on it so would rather have a nicer (read: posher) frame.Posted 4 years ago

Why would you weigh a frame without a shock? They’re all a bit porky.
You could get an Ibis Mojo HD or Transition Covert carbon frame for around the price of that Nicolai (with a cheeky LBS discount).
Nicolai can be had online for a lot less. As for the shock, that’s how Nicolai quote the weights, ‘cos they offer loads of different shocks. And how Sicklines weigh a frame, presumably for the same reason.Posted 4 years agoHob NobMember
Are you on the Carbon 66, HN? How do you find it?
Yes, in short, I like it.
The combination of a long TT, low BB, slack head angle & short stays is what I like. I’m riding it quicker than any other bike i’ve ridden so far.
I’ve said a few times, the early reviews were probably a bit off, combined with the odd full builds from Yeti caused some confusion. It’s not a long legged XC/Trail bike, it’s a properly agressive AM bike if built properly. If you don’t ride it hard, it’s not that great, but when you do, it’s really good.
A lot of the reviews are starting to reflect that now. It’s not perfect, but it’s pretty damn good.Posted 4 years ago
