    I don't suggest pikes unless you're dirt jumping, so get either a mazocchi 66 or Z1.
    Always having fun!

    Either a 66 or a Z1 with 150mm travel or possibly a Fox 36 of some sort, either of them should be great.

    I rode a Gspot the other day, but found it hard work on hills - the lads ride Moments and I had struggle keeping up with them going up hills........not a problem going down! I'm debating wether to get Gspot and build it up with Fox36's but I have to run a triple chainset to get me around tracks (Im unfit!), how do you guys find the Gspot as an all mountain bike?

    The bike I rode had 66's on it.........found it nose dived on jumps! strange feeling that!

    Just a little input, I just installed an 06 Z1 Light on my Norco and simply love it and highly recommend it for almost all types of riding.

    I'm running Pike's on my G...love them. My mate runs Fox 36s on his Nomad and actually prefers my Pikes for two reasons:

    1) Pikes are lighter
    2) The maxle is a great 20mm axle system on the fork - quicker than unbolting the 36's
