    Good deals on 29 hard tails?

    I'm thinking about buying a new 29er hardtail. Anyone know of any great deals going on?

    What type of conditions do you ride in? What are you looking for (carbon, alum, etc...)? What's your weight/riding style. Entry level or a good deal on a nicer frame? Check out SteepandCheap.com under their wheel wars, they have some nice frames on sale.

    Look in the 29er forum, been several good ebay deals posted on new Marin bikes.

    Mostly XC singletrack. Looking for Carbon. 185#, do some technical riding but mostly smooth singletrack. Looking for a nice complete bike, size L. I'm a big Niner fan and SteepandCheap does have an 2013 AIR 9 carbon for $800 so that's a pretty solid deal. Thanks for the recommendation

    The carbon "china" frames are pretty cheap.
    On-One lurcher from Planet X uk has cheap full builds.

    A good TA fork/geometry is more important than frame material IMO.
    The wheel is a extension of the foot
