Switching from HT to full suspension
I just got a new job and I'm thinking of starting a new full suspension project. I've only ridden hard tails in the past and I'm interested in a full suspension frame that has a stable pedalling platform that will climb similar to my hardtail. I was thinking of a Santa Cruz Blur xc/lt with the VPP suspension, or something from Intense. Money isn't a huge concern, but I don't want to spend all my money on a frame and not be able to put quality components on it. I do mostly XC riding, but I'm looking to get more aggressive with more travel. I'm very used to my SS hardtail so I probably won't run a 3X9, but a 1X9 drivetrain. I'm thinking 130mm of travel front and rear. Your suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
