Where do you do most of your riding?Posted 4 years ago
I have a SOLO and its a great all rounder, went to the lakes this week and Borrowdale Bash was a lot of fun on it. Makes trail centres fun too. As for throwing it down super steep tech stuff, think the travel limits you. If thats more your thing and perhaps want to go to Alps etc, then Mr Bronson is your weapon of choice.
Is £2k for frame?
Trek remedys are looking pretty capable machines for 2014 too
Only turned off by the fork. My last 32 was pants and these 34’s have been slated by almost everyone.
The 32 are too Flexi but are nothing like the 34’s.
The model that has been slated were the 2013’s and the new ones have a changed damper. I have the 34 Float CTD TA and like it a lot, getting it tuned in well (but STW knows I am wrong 🙂 ) coming from a 36 and 55’s the stiffness is not that of a DH fork but it’s not on it’s still very stiff though
Not heard much bad about Bronsons, the RM altitude is a great bike. I tried the 750 Alloy one which was good but not as good as the Blur LTc I got instead. However the top end carbon is meant to be a better.Posted 4 years agoJCLMember
This is the only 650b AM bike I’d consider http://www.norco.com/bikes/mountain/all-mountain-enduro/range-carbon/Posted 4 years ago

The 2014 Range Killer B is designed for aggressive (tick), wide-open all-mountain(tick) riding. Featuring category-bending capability(tick), the 160mm Range is both an enduro race rig(tick)[b](tick)[/b] and the ideal backcountry(tick) accomplice
Certainly scores highly on the buzzword scale 😉Posted 4 years agoMintyjimSubscriber
I’ve just ordered the cheapest Canyon Strive, should hopefully arrive next week…10 year guarantee, amazing price and I frequently work near to Koblenz (their HQ) so I’m not sweating about aftermarket support.
I really debated the whole 27.5 thing simply because if you’re ‘forced’ by bike marketeers there’s very little you can do, but then I’ve got enough quality 26″ spares (and decent Shimano kit) that a 1×10 26er cheapest Canyon worked for me. First brand new bike in a loooong time so I’m excited.Posted 4 years ago
No idea which wheel size is better, it came down to whole life (of ownership) costs for me, couple with a decent geometry.ant_mtbrMember
i’m surprised no one has mentioned the new Mondraker range yet? the 2014 stuff is amazing! The dune is a very different bike to previous years and has certainly grabbed a lot of attention since its release!

In reality this is like every single other ‘spec me an all-mountain/enduro/trail-bike/mountain bike/mountaining mountain bicycling bike’ thread, minus the 27.5 wheels.
Get the Bronson/Solo, I imagine Santa Cruz have got their carbon sorted now with the revised pivots, 5 year warranty, free bearing replacement, it should last you 5 years and even longer unless they bring out another wheel size or invent some more buzzwords.Posted 4 years ago
