The G170 is a beast and its heavy. Mine is about 16kg with strong alu rims, DH casing and tools. I wouldnt want to pedal that thing around all day long.

If you ride that stuff with the hardtail, go with the S150

Good point. To get to the Grade 5 trails at my local trail centre, I do have to ride for about 5kms.

Thank you for the help.

The 170 is a lot of bike. If your riding 75%gnar 75% of the time I’d go with it. If you can ride all your trails on a hard tail with confidence the 170 is overkill. I have mine built up at 33.5 lbs and I would not want it is a 50/50 bike

No info here. Traveled mine to 170 up front. 180 seems a bite high, also considering BB height.

Is this bike easy to convert the front travel to 170mm ? And if so does it still ride nice ?? Thanks ????
