Why? Because it has become passe to do so? If so, that's somewhat retarded. If the OP has only been looking in B&M shops then he won't have come across Canyon yet and it ought to be brought to his attention for consideration.
OP - a sub 12kg full suspension bike is going to be very hard to find regardless of budget. If your intended purpose is for use on the trails of Ballyhoura, say, you probably ought to go for something that's a bit of an all-rounder. The Canyon Nerve XC 8.0
might be the only sub 2k sub 12kg full suspension bike out there and fits the all-rounder bill. A friend of mine has the Nerve X 6.0 and is delighted with it. TBH, if you're not already familiar with the componentry of bikes then you probably won't even notice the difference between the 8.0 and the 6.0. You will however notice the extra €500 you'll have left in your pocket if you go for the latter. I have the hardtail Grand Canyon AL 6.0
. Lovely build and I can't have any complaints.
Whatever you decide on, good luck with it.
