I have my 09 Specialized Rockhopper all built up, but I don't know if the frame is up to the task of getting thrashed by 265# of me. Don't know if its a good test or not, but while standing over my bike, I tip it 25-30 degree from vertical, and apply power to the ds pedal, I am pretty sure I see the bb area flexing, and the chainstays flexing also. as it appears that the gap from the cs to the rear tire changes when I put power to the pedal.
I am looking for a stout 29er Hardtail bike frame, going to be running gears with front susp. fork.
I am thinking the Kona Big Unit might be my best choice for a stiff frame.
