Trek Frames have lifetime warranty, and the components are pretty good.... Same goes for specialized...

i totally agree... pinkbike forums are becoming more useless everyday... the point of test riding is to get an idea of what YOU like, not what others tell you to like... i know there are still shreds of intelligence on this site... but we're not going to find it in these forums...

Nah, I spent alot of money on it, ti springs,ti boxxers,x0 ect... biggest weight loss was by using cotinental super sonic inner tubes on 2.5 single ply big earl tires. I miss that bike now......

oh boy that'd be a super fun bike
i really did like my session, just not it's retardedly excessive weight...especially considering i'm quite pinner

Fit a shock with a 2.75 stroke and hey presto, you have a session 8. Thats what i did, it doesn't lift the bb height enough to notice..

Seriously, it's ok the wheel normally has a inch and a half to come in to the seat tube, when increased the stroke it comes in at 3/4 of a inch,

you just successfully voided your lifetime warranty

Nah, unfortunatley i voided the warranty earlier by fitting a set of boxxers to it, so didn't really matter. lol
