u dont judge bikes on travel (most of the time)Something Clever... said:I don't think they need to do any weeding out... The only trail bikes I see mentioned above are the Blur LT, Nomad, and Heckler. The 4x should be used for slalom (4.5 inches of travel)... The VP-Free for freeriding (8.5 inches of travel)... and the Bullit for freeriding and maybe hardcore trail riding (7 inches of travel)... They are making a line of VPPs and a line of single pivots. Not everyone can afford a $1700 (or higher) VPP frame. Especially since their single pivot frames with a stable platform kick a$$.
