    Xc, trail, endurance fa frame

    I'm looking to pick up a soft tail frame this year and move the parts from my 23 pound steel hardtail with an xfusion velvet to it. This will be my only bike and a do it all sort of bike. What frames should I consider besides giant, Santa Cruz 5010, and Rocky mountain thunderbolt? My rear wheel is a 142/135 axle.

    I picked up a used bmc four-stroke. Love the bike, and it uses 142 rear, and they haven't changed it much in a few years.

    Intense Spider is in that 5010/Thunderbolt class and good deals seem to be available. I love mine, use it for what you're describing.

    The spider is an awesome bike. Carbon ones are boost, but you may be able to get an adaptor. Great deals on the Intense website!

    The Pivot Mach 4 looks nice, too
