My first two "real" mountain bikes: 2001 Bullit and a 2007 Heckler. I loved them and rode the heck out of them...then I got greedy for a "better" multi-link endurance bike for 24 hour races, etc. My last few multi-link bikes have been nice, but require a lot more work to keep them running "fresh" and quiet. They are lighter, faster uphill, and do not exhibit brake jack. But...I am starting to long for the value, durability, simplicity, and low maintenance goodness of another SC single pivot.
I really like the Solo, but that would open another can of multi-pivot worms. I really like the Bantam, but cannot believe the frame is that heavy (Heckler weight). I kind of like the Superlight 29, but would like a rear thru-axle, 5" of travel, and 27.5 wheels.
I know some of you have almost "insider" info regarding SC. Is there any news of a 27.5 frame that would be somewhere between a Superlight and Bantam? I am a good 3-4 years out from buying a new bike.
