    2015 Norco Sight 7.1 or 2015 Trek Remedy 9.8 or 2015 Trek Slash 9.8

    Hi everyone! I currently own a 650b 120 mm carbon FS. It's very good for weekly rides that are mainly XC. I don't feel confident though when I travel to ride in more technical trails and coming down the hills. I mean slightly modified trails with mid level jumps and kickers. I'm 1.78meter/90 kg (5.8'/198pounds). I even considered a new 29 Remedy. It's going to be my second bike. Any advise including a frame size would be appreciated.

    If you have a great 120mm xc/trail bike already, I wouldn't go Remedy or Sight as they aren't enough of a departure from your current bike. I would look at the Slash, Reign, Transition Patrol or a Pivot Mach 6, Santa Cruz Nomad or the new HD3 from Ibis if you don't mind dropping slightly more coin.

    Thanks a lot! My LBS sells Trek. But its geometry is more downhill oriented than Pivot or HD3.
