    Best All Mountain Hardtail 29er ?

    Hey Guys and Gals,
    I need some subjective advice I am looking to buy a 29er hardtail frame and would like one that I am not intending to race (but lightweight is always nice) but to take into all mountain territory, rocky and rooty or technical riding. I need one that has a wider rear tire clearance so I can fit a wider tire on the back. I previously had a Ninerbikes SIR9 and had alot of rear tire clearance issues with it (couldnt fit a Kenda Nevegal comfortably on it, it would fit but as soon as a wheel came out of true or I had some mud it was rubbing). Any and all advice is greatly appreciated!
    -Dave

    Canfield Yelli Screamy or Nimble 9, Kona Honzo, Banshee Paradox, Transition Trans Am 29, Chromag 29er are all on here many times, and all seem to have great reviews. Read about these bikes, or just put them all in a hat and draw a winner.

    No, Rocky. It's Simon Bar Sinister.

    Or unless he was referring to the Simon Bar, formerly (?) made by Sinister.

    That's funny +1. Although I might have to sell my Yelli now since I have this bad visual of Justin Timberlake.
