    DH Frames with 135 rear & 73mm BB

    Are there any DH frames still with a 135 rear & 73mm BB?

    I have a Demo 7, and would like something lighter, but if I can reuse parts, then all the better - I know the Intense Socom will take a 135 rear - are there any others?

    Not exactly WC DH, but the Transition Blindside and Scott Voltage FR.

    Yeah, I know I won't get a "proper" DH bike, but just wondering about options.

    Might just have to bite the bullet. I like the look of the Voltage, mind.

    Not much of a change from my Demo, though.

    The Canfield Can-Diggle is pretty close to a full on DH rig. I believe it meets your prerequisites as well...

    Socom and you can spec the 951 with 135 rear end. Chain line isn't that funky.

    orange 224 evo has been for years. 2010 has a new swinging arm that makes it even stronger.

    But don't Socoms have 83mm BBs?

    Edit: my bad, it's 73mm

    I think the Sinister R9 fits the bill, if you can find one.

    +1 on the Sinister R9
    If you get one see if you can track down a 'cali link' for it. It's a shorter seat stay that drops the bb and slacks the head angle. Mine rides like a whole new bike after the new link came in this spring.

    It is? Cool - that would be pretty high on the list then, it's as "proper" a DH bike as I've seen with 135.

    Not a fan of the Chumba, looks wise - seen it get a pretty bad review too.

    The review is probably based on the old geometry. They make, and I made my own, a link that lowers the BB and brings the HA to 64.
