    ... and if we just ... Looking for a hardtail frame please ?

    Need something versatile to run a 100mm-140mm fork , something that's decent and will hold up . I love ripping thru single tracks with roots and some light rock beds. I do like some downhill as well but nothing crazy or extreme ( I don't race or compete ) .. What can u guys recommend for a budget of 400-600 ? If that's doable .

    Also I am running 26 inch wheels with a 2.35 wide tire up front if that helps . I like the whole wide tire thing

    Loook for a Santa Cruz Chameleon. I got mine used but like new for 275 and run a 100-130 revelation but it can take a longer fork. I've run 2.35 nevegals on it.

    Look at the last 10 pages of the AM HT thread and visit the websites for the bikes you like.

    You can check Ragley's lineup if they are even out yet. I had a first-gen Blue Pig and it was pretty hard to beat for the price. I sold it only because my wife limits the number of bikes in the garage and a HT wasn't 1 of my top 2 bikes. Otherwise, on-one has a few offerings. voodoo makes nice frames from what I've seen but I think they tend to be more XC geo.

    have fun
