    Full sus

    I've always like my FSR XC (A1) but I think it's about time I change my frame.

    I've narrow down the the following frame.
    1. Stumpy FSR Pro 100 (m4)
    2. Santa cruz Blur
    3. Santa cruz superlight
    4. Titus Racer X
    5. Titus Switchblade.

    I'm using it mainly for trail and cross country riding.
    Will the blur and racer X be too hash to ride for someone that come from the Specialized FSR? The Swichblade and stumpy are basically the same rear design so I guess it's just about the same ride as my FSR XC.

    Please advise...

    Stumpy 120?

    Are you racing? If not, look at the Stumpy 120 for that extra travel.

    Compared to the FSR, and of couse depending how firm your shock is, the RacerX will feel about the same in deeper plush travel feel but less flexy and noticably snappier pedaling than the FSR. The Blur and Switchblade will feel smoother, pusher and faster accelerating. Superlight is more plush and faster accelerating, but not as smooth in the pedals as the others (some kickback) when climbing.

    I'm currently using a Marz 105mm fork so I'm thinking of sticking to 100mm rear.
    Is the Stump 120 pro too much rear travel to use a 100mm fork?

    I do not think so...

    I am running 5" front/ 6" rear, and it rides fine.
