    FS02 question

    Hello I was buying a 2014 FS02 but don't have a chance to test ride one. I am looking for an all day comfortable bike, ride trails , single track. Is this a comfortable bike? I have a 26 hardtail alloy at the moment, and have tested a Cannondale scalpel 29 1 and a specialised stump jumper as well as pivot 429. The BMC is a good price and looks appealing. Any thoughts from owners? Thanks. (At the same price I can get a Cannondale trigger 1 2013 in alloy so that an option too).

    Nobody? How about a different question? Did anyone with a four stroke test the FS01 and FS02 and find the FS01 so much better that they had to find the extra cash?

    FS02 question

    FS is quite good. But I think that the comfort depends mostly from sizing. FS has quite low front end and quite long top tube. I'm 191 cm long and L size frame. I had to swap the stock 70mm 6 deg stem to 110mm 17 deg stem to get comfortable position. Bikes with higher front end are easier to setup for comfortable ride. But it depends on you size and riding habbits.

    I've got the FS01 and it's a great bike; I use it as an XC/Marathon bike but I've ridden it on plenty of gnar. Takes some time to get the shock and fork setup dialed but it's great on long days. You can make it plush or super efficient.
