Remember Scott makes DH bikes. I loved my Genius (not a dh bike, but still, would bang again).Basically looking for something with similar fitment geometry as an XL V10 29er, but since the Dutch royal family doesn't think I'm rich enough to own one of those, I'm looking at other options.
490ish reach (this is also dependent on HA and front-center measurement).
Easy shock access
Strongly prefer something with a lifetime warranty and not something exotic. I expect to have this for a long time with use 3-4x a season.
Not racing anything. Just beating up bike parks with it.
Slightly concerned with how sluggish a high pivot 29er will be with a lot of travel and weight.
TR11 is a strong contender. Between sizes for L and XL according to the numbers though.
The Propain looks really good, but might be too exotic if support is ever needed.
Nukeproof also looks good, but shorter warranty coverage.
Jedi? Can't find much about the new ones.
It's been years since I looked at everything that's out there in the DH bike realm. What else am I missing here?
I don't think they make anything bad.
