Hi im new to mountain biking im only 16 and the bike i have got now (a piece of s*** Saracen ) cant realy take much abuse and i am into single track and a bit of downhill. I was wanting to build a bike for around £1500 and was wondering what frame i should get. I was looking at a 2005 Orange MsIsle just wondering what your thoughts were or any other decient frame.

Thanks Jonathan.

you have got a nice budget so this should be easy. first question, full suspension or hardtail? hardtail will naturally be significantly cheaper.

Orange makes great bikes...

Hmmmm.... said:
I'm after a realy decent hard tail that can withstand a fair bit of abuse but still fairly light.
Orange makes really great bikes and if you can afford one, I'll never try and talk you out of getting one.

One thing to consider: At 16, you may still have another 7-9 years growing to do. Any bike that you purchase now may be too small in a couple of years. Then again, that's a great reason to get a another new bike....
