Dont assume anything over the Internet. If youd read all my previous comments, youll see that ive been saying weight makes a big difference to how it rides, but so does geometry and suspension layout. It all adds up though. The only bikes you can truly compare weight wise are 2 exactly the same frame and suspension set ups with 10lb difference in weight. Untill then it could be any manner of things making it feel different. My new bike is either 150 or 165mm rear travel, with the same 160 fork that was on old bike with 160mm rear travel, and the new one even with 10mm less travel handles rocks and roots far better, because its a better suspension design. Your two bikes could have different intended uses, it could be a long travel am bike vs a short travel dh bike, which would feel completely different even if they weighed exactly the same

I dont understand what your saying? Are you agreeing with me or disagreeing? And just for reference, 2 suspension platforms can feel completely differently due to kinematics, meaning similar travel amounts feel completely different or ride completely differently over rough terrain.

Yeah but presuming the rider is actually competent, more riders would be able to ride the big hit faster than the session without killing the rims if nothing else

Actually, a lot of dh bikes ability to hold a line is the suspension, its the amount of negative travel they have (once sagged back up to full extension). Its why vpp is a very effective dh suspension platform, because they typically run a little extra sag by design.

No it isnt. Various people have said once you go under 34lbs with a dh bike it feels too light. So how (on a v10C or session 9.9) is it not the weight that makes it feel sketchy? Like, the exact same frame but theyve dropped a few pounds (easily done)
