    New question here. Question concerning Cove Handjob

    I've been looking at possibly building up a Handjob.

    I have a few questions if anyone could give me some info....

    I'm planning to build up a hardtail for aggressive/technical XC. Not really freeriding, but a little more abusive than traditional XC.

    I'm a fairly big guy, 200#, 6'1".

    Does the Handjob fit the bill? Or should I be looking at another option.....

    I think so...

    I had ordered one but it was too big and I exchanged it for a stiffee. It was pretty burly and heavier than my Kona Explosif frame. Good tire clearance too.
    I got some bad ideas in my head.

    The Handjob is not approved for DC forks, and I wouldn't want to put anything longer than a Vanilla 125/130 on it. It has plenty of tire clearance (I'm running MotoRaptor 2.4's and it looks like it could fit Timberwolf 2.5's). It has a compliant ride and maintains traction better than the average Al HT on rooty climbs. It isn't as tough as a DMR HT or a Stiffee or Chameleon. I would grab it over any of those for long, rough rides but not for sessioning.
