    What you really want is a 4 or 5" trail bike......

    .....that comes in about 32 pounds and can take a beating.
    Don't discuss.

    Actually I do . . . I keep spending all my available funds on big gravity sleds, though.

    I have one and it's great...4.5" of travel, 30lbs, and DH geometry...can't go wrong with that...well, except when climbing up, not going to win any races with the bike but just wait until the trail points down.

    You don't know how good it can be until you have something moving in the rear!

    Nearer to 34# vs. 32#, but I'll hold onto it a bit regardless.



    When someone makes a simple single pivot with the same sizing and geometry, methinks it will sell well. IMO, a Santa Cruz heckler with a two-degree slacker head angle would freakin' kick ass.
    I believe the clouds in my coffee more than the weatherman on t.v.

    5.5 was DOA before it got started. 575 is where it's at and 7 is coming on strong .

    I'm just saying it takes more skill to ride with only 3.5" than it does with 5.5" hehehe
