Hey all, first post here, but have been lurking for quite some time. Been drooling over DH bikes for a long time, but never had the bones to buy one, until now. I am, though, moving to a place where lifts aren´t an option, and I have no idea if there´re any DH/FR crews around (wrt shuttling). Well, I´m mostly focused on the descent, being an at times big mountain skier, and fairly good at it, but big mountains on skis require snow, and you don´t get that all year. Enter the bike. I am a 177cm/90kg male, plan to get down to 80-82kg by the end of the year, and stay there until next bike season. I live in N.Norway, steep mountains everywhere, but unsure of trails. The bike I´m predominantly looking at; Commencal Supreme FRV3 (fox), slack head angle, lots of travel, no idea on pedalability, and it´s not light. (all ok by me - I need the exercise). I love the geometry, and hear good things about the DH version. Are the DH and the FR the same frame with the rear shock linkage being placed a little differently? There is a lot of travel, and I´m frankly unsure if I´m going to need all of it. Why aren´t there mini DH bikes with 6" travel and 64deg head angles? Can I, in the case 7"/180mm is too much travel, simply shorten the travel? In case it´s not obvious, this would be my first FR full sus bike. Any advise would be very welcome. Yes, I´ve searched!
