    2:1 Xct 4

    Has anyone got a 2:1 XCT 4 ?
    if so what do you think of it? what similar bikes have you ridden or considered ?
    Also does anyone know the weight of a medium frame ?

    We rode the 2.1 XCT at interbike but I'm not sure if it was the 4 or the 5. The guy at the booth said it had 5.5" of travel but it had the Curnutt air shock on it and the Foes site shows only the XCT 4 with the air shock.

    In any case, it was stiff, relatively light, and generally was made really well. It was hard to assess its ride charactistics completely because the shock was sticky and almost totally none responsive eventhough we were getting full travel. I don't know if it was needing some service or we just had something set up wrong, or it was just broken.

    I can't imagine a manufacture putting out a shock that behaved like that and thinking that it was anywhere close to acceptable.... so I gotta think something was wrong.
