    Was having a gander at these: based on your extensive knowledge of DH bikes, which one do you recommend, assuming I can flog one of my MTB's to an unsuspecting Arran or Mr h?

    how many inches do you currently have at the back Stevo?

    Didn't post last night as I was supporting the local economy :D

    Only 6....it's enough for most of what I ride but an extra couple of inches would help :)

    Science adjusts it’s beliefs based on what’s observed.
