Ok, so I love Downieville and it is definitely the most extreme riding that I do with mostly xcountry otherwise so I don't need to overkill it with too much suspension travel. I had a Santa Cruz Nomad that ate Downieville's Butcher alive! I loved that bike, but want something faster and more agile for xcountry. I hate the looks of the SC Blur Trc, but afraid that the SC Blur XC Carbon doesn't have enough suspension. My question...I know that people can do downhill on a hardtail, so can't a bike with only 4" of travel handle Downieville?
