azonic steelhead if you want low price with performance and banshee scirocco if you want light weight with durability.fsdjer said:I am looking to buy a NEW hardtail freeride frame under 500. I dont do anything real big, light freeriding. What frame would u suggest? I ride a fs now and want to go back to hardtail for some unknown reason.
I'd guess that it's you.NRTH SHORE said:is it me or does the tubing look a little on the light side.?
I will second the Trail-or-Park recomendation. I have one, and its a lot of fun. Check it out:the kid said:Look up Transitions trail-or-park. You can put an 8in fork if you want it. It also has a life time warranty. And lastly it is cheap 400 bucks. Not as cheap as Azoni_c but worth looking in too
Right now it is set up with 3 piece chromo cranks, single speed, and a 5" travel fork, but I am actually considering putting gears on it and making it more of a trail bike. It will work fine for the occasional XC ride. The frame is heavy, so its not a XC racer by any means, but it should work great for trail riding. I actually just went on a 10 mile "road" ride (crusing on a paved path) with it last night, set up this way. The geometry is really nice for trail riding, I have done a few XC-ish rides on it (Single speed).I mainly much use it for DJ, urban and park stuff. Over all, its a really fun bike.fsdjer said:[
Showtime: How do u have the trail or park set up? How does it perform. Would i be able to do the occasional xc ride on it?
