    AM Hardtail?

    Looking for a very strong hardtail. I don't want to pay for a TI, but a company that has good geometry and builds tanks. I don't care about weight, my friend has a fuji that's like 30 lbs and its a beast. I have looked at the TransAM but are there any good frames that aren't steel?

    Ragley Troof - updated version of the mmmBop, Al, slack front end, 1.5" head tube, takes a 160mm fork, has ISCG mounts and will supposedly take a 2.5" tire. Should be available in February sometime for around $500 for a frame.

    I own a mid 2000 Chameleon. Its a great frame with great geometry. Its pretty beefy but yet light enough for 25lb bike.

    I think I'll probably just go for the Chameleon, it's a fan favorite and it's Al

    Are you buying new? The Chameleon retails for $599 and comes with a EBB (one of the things that swayed me away from it). The Ragley Troof retails for $470 and looks great for the price and its features.

    What about the mmmbop? It looks pretty nice for the price, granted it can only run up to 150 but preferred 140.
