    Hi guys. I have a 2014 Surge Evo and I am a little worried about the welding quality of the frame since my 2 first frames suffered from welding porosity but the 3rd one seems to be OK at least visually.

    Other than that I really like it.

    Cool-blue Rhythm On-One 456

    Another On-One 456! I missed my Ragley so much that I bought this two months after arriving in the UK. 150mm Revelation, SLX drivetrain (3x9, gross), Deore brakes, 200mm front disc(!!!), 2.4" Mountain Kings, 720mm Nukeproof bar, Nukeproof flat pedals. Haven't had time to ride it yet. Depending on what the trails are like in Sussex, I plan to reconfigure the bike. Maybe a 2x9/bash setup, 30mm stem, dropper post.

    It's interesting to note what a decent fork can do for a mediocre (at best) hardtail frame. There was a picture of this work-in-progress in an earlier post, but here's an action shot with the addition of the XT crankset, XT brakes and a E-Ten 100mm lever dropper.

    I hate 650b because it's not as fun as 26 inch wheels and because it doesn't have the rollover ability of 29 inch wheels.

    I believe as long as you RIDE Up the trail then RIDE Down then you are ALL Mountain and that makes your hardtail "all mountain" Yes?

    RIDE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I think it's more of an xc (perhaps trail) bike. Fork looks to be 120mm, angles don't look very slack (hard to tell from picture tho), egg beaters, saddle bag, no dropper post, racing ralph on the back? If the guy is going to rag on other people for posting non-all mountain bikes in this thread he should do the same.

    Nice bike though. I just don't see how it can be classified as all mountain and it's ironic the guy jumped all over someone else for not posting a proper AM hardtail.

    OK so there are "specs" involved in-order to qualify as All Mountain? I thought lots of slack and travel was for downhill gravity riders, shuttle type with full face helmets?
    I assumed All Mountain is XC with lots of long UP and some jumping and technical down hill with tons of braking?

    I guess so. Ask the All Mountain Police that get their panties in a knot whenever someone posts a bike that isn't gnar-worthy enough. I'm just calling out hypocritical behavior.

    Did you notice that the bike that he called out for being not "all mountain" was a full suspension bike with slick tyres?

    Also, I don't think the name "All Mountain" doesn't have credibility any more. Neither does "Trail". "Trail" is any mountain bike, if you ride it on a trail.
    I think there should be four categories of mountain bikes.
    Recreational- sub $900 bikes that have similar geometry to a XC bike, but costs less and has lower end components.
    XC- (Cross Country)- steeper HT angle, longer chainstays, 80-120mm of front end travel, hardtail or Full suspension
    Enduro- 120-170mm of front end travel, dropper post compatibility, room for wide tyres.
    Freeride/Downhill- 180 and up suspension travel, full suspension,

    Good points but one could argue that the lower range of "Enduro" say 120-150 is actually "trail" and "150-170" is "Enduro (previously known as All-Marketing.)"

    A really good bike doesn't exist for new under $700.
    No all mountain bike exists for under $700.
    Unless you buy used.
