Recently my Fox RP rear shock gave out (leaking fluid from the pro-pedal lever) and I decided it was time to service my lefty as well. The bike was down for almost 2 months. NOT cool. Time to get a new bike so I have a backup. Im loyal to C'dale since 89 so Im trying to find a bike in the 2012 line up that rides like (or better?) than my Rush 2. The bike I had before my Rush was a full carbon Raven. That bike was not comfortable for long trail rides. I ride mostly hard pack with a few drops, not many climbs (in Houston). Do you think the Scalpel 2 or 2 29er is a good fit? Maybe the RZ? I havent seen any weight specs on the plastic RZ.....

Thanks for your time.
