    Pick a Frame Any Frame!

    I guess I don't know a dam thing and want some advice.
    I heard a lot of variations but not sure which story to believe.
    Some say I should get a 8" travel bike some say I should get a 4" travel bike.
    I have no clue, the people in my area use the range of 4-8 and none of them seems wrong, but which will be most right for me?

    I am a light weight guy who isn't very strong but full of energy, weigh 155 and stand 5-10.

    I ride trails with a lot of rocks and unforgiving ledges.
    You have to keep up speed and the front wheel or the big rocks & trees will send otb.
    There are a lot of uphill's with 1-2' tall rocks to hop up on the way.
    Need something that can go up and down the same gnarly all mountain sections with some drops up to 4 feet and some jumps here and there.
    I can't be so tired by the time I get to the top, that I'm un-safe taking on the down hill run. lol

    I am unlikely to buy a pre-built bike kit, so lets focus on the Frame not the latest kit-sale-price. I prefer to pick my components separately.

    Knolly Chilcoltin
    Trek Slash / Remedy
    Canfieldbrothers The-one
    GT Distortion / Force

    They all look good to this noob. haha

    you made another frame about the remedy and slash, either of those would fit the bill. remedy might be better because you are small.
