What is the best full sus xc frame?
I currently have a xtc team(nrs) and its light, well built and rides like hard tail while soaking up the rough stuff.

Get out of it you!

But he is right, everyone is different and your terrain may define certain aspects of your bike.


That sai, i rode my mates voodoo canzo the other day and my what a bike!
It feels quite neutral on the trails but with that comes predictability.
Its not out and out xc though at 140mm on the fornt end (with rock shox u turn though).
It was also very light.

Too heavy Chris
I like light weight bikes, the teocali weighs a ton

Only with heavy bits, the best is not the lightest don't forget. Intense spider appears to get very highly regarded as a contender. Also the mongoose Canaan, bitd a mere 4" travel lol

The terrain the bike is being ridden on will dictate which is the best bike

I have to say that my Cube Sting HPC Pro is the best XC full suss bike I have ever ridden

It's lightweight, agile, climbs like a goat on speed, descends like a bat out of hell & rails singletrack like no other bike I've owned

Pics & spec in the link in my sig below...
