Duncan rides an Orange Alpine and it may be rider or bike related but does literally everything on it without a worry, from XC to PORC....

Good to hear the alpine is a bit beefier

Have you thought about a mojo
I have 2
The hd 160 weighs 29lb
And the other one 27
The weights include droppers and pedals.
I'm 15 stones and they are more than enough for me :-)

Ibis Mojo's seem to be pretty good. I've never been that keen on how they look, but in terms of how they ride, they are very good.

I would say you can't look much past canyon's or YT's due to the value factor.....

Yes they are

the value factor: if you buy an hd, for the cost of an extra shock (£250?) and some limbo chips (£20) you can switch between 160 front and back to 140 front and back in less than 15 mins,pretty versatile for an AM bike that can weighs about 28lb. It also has the DW dw link which makes it a great climber if and when needed.

i dont think they look good either
