I currently ride a 2005 Specialized FSR XC, but I just don't like the way it handles. I'm looking to sell that bike and to purchase a hardtail mtb to be used for XC based, technical, rolling hill-type single track. Something that does not require a lot of maintenance but is a lot of fun to ride. I'm looking to spend $1,200 or less. The reviews for the Santa Cruz Chameleon seem very high, as do those for hardtail Stumpjumpers. I do not do any serious jumping but would like a bike that is durable. I weigh 195 lbs and am 6'0 in height. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
