Hello everyone!
I need to buy a new frame because my current frame is falling apart.
I have 180mm of travel on the front and 150mm on the back.
My budget is around 300€.
I am 17, i weight about 75 kilos and i'm 1,76 meters tall.
I am usually hitting stairs, drops, jumps or learning basic techniques.
I found 2 interesting options that fit me:
-Radon swoop 26" full suspension:

-Dartmoor primal 27.5 hardtail:
https://26bikes.com/shop/parts/frames/enduro-all-mountain/prod/dart-primal-275

What should i choose?
The 26" cheap full suspension frame or using my 26" wheels with the 27.5" hardtail and changing them and the fork after a while?
If you can help me decide or come up with any other suggestions i will gladly appreciate it.

I'd go for the Radon. But a new shock is going to bust your budget.
Thanks for the reply!
I already have a rockshox kage shock that matches the dimensions required for the radon,so i don't need to spend more. The ony things i need to change are the rear hub and the headset, because i currently have a 135*10mm rear hub and i need a reducer tapered headset .
