    Thanks!

    It's definitely one frame that I haven't had the urge of dumping and trying something new next season (unlike my two previous 26er AMHT). Love my build, the way it rides, but could use better tires for wet/mud, the Ardents are great in the summer, fall weather not so much. Although an exact replica in titanium would be killer too, it could lose a few lbs but I don't see where I would make the cuts, everything's pretty much dialed.

    Your titanium N9 replica is pretty sweet too.

    ditto-er, although the carbon on one 456 will probably be my next AMHT.

    choosing between 3 hard tails

    I need to choose in the next 2 or 3 days, one of these 3 hardtails. I do not know enough yet about the components to make a good decision and could use some advice. If all three were your size and setting in front of you which would you choose and why or why not. THANKS

    Nope, too busy riding.

    Took it trail riding yesterday, then took it to the bike park today. Dirt jumps, pump tracks and a dual-slalom course. It was awesome on all of them. I may even dump my DJ bike. This was nearly as good at the park and way better to ride there and back.

    I'll get to that stinger later.

    Hey, I have an old 2002 Raleigh hardtail, it currently has an 80mm Rockshox Judy II on it that came stock with the bike. I have been looking at forks with more travel but wasnt sure how much bigger I should go. I have read that you should only go 20mm over the factory size. I was looking at maybe a Rockshox fork with 140mm of travel, but I wasnt sure if this could potentially weaken my frame or cause any other damage. Let me know what you think, or if you have any recomendations.

    Its been a while since I posted any pics... + I just wanted to show it off some more... nice looking bikes everyone. I'll never get rid of this bike, partly because I can't afford another frame and because I love it so much. Only thing more that I could ask for is a dropper seatpost and a softer spring...

    Hi! I'm about to upgrade my XC bike and use as an AM bike, but i can't decide in some of the parts.
    Which one would be better? a Rock Shox Sektor RL Solo Air (2013) for 300euro or a Suntour Epicon X2 Rl R for about 220 euro? Both are 15mm thru axle.
    The other thing is that i can't decide that a Shimano Deore (M596) brake would be enought for Am or not.
    I don't know if my frame can handle a 150 mm fork but the geometry would be the same as an on one 456. (not the same but very similar)
    Could you help my a little bit for me? When my bike is complete i will post it up to this thread.

    Could you dell us more about the frame you already have? I believe it is not very wise to change the geometry of a frame which is designed for xc with longer fork. It could be dangerous heat tube breaking.
    Some frames, like cotic Bfe can take a fork from100mm to 160mm. So what is your frame?

    it's not a popular worldwide frame, it's just a hungarian made alu frame with quite cheap things on it. I measure up some things in advance and write it down here. If the geo changing is really dangerous, i could put in the epicon (if i buy that) with a 120mm setup and when i get a better frame, for example a on-one 456 or something like that then i could switch back to 140mm. Could you recommend me some not so expensive frame? I try to change as many things on my bike as i can, cuz if a would change everything i could have rather buy a new bike. Now i have new wheels, stem, handlebar and i will buy new fork and brakes.

    ok. 71 for head angle is very common for xc. Am have less. A longer fork I believe will not give you what you expect for. In my opinion keep your money for an am frame. On one 456evo it is a very good choice for it's price.
