    Still not enough details. There are too many bikes on the market, and they're all good.

    Budget open? Are you willing to spend no less than $10,000 for all of the best components?

    You need to provide more details. Fit is something you can't get around, and only you can decide/figure out what fits.

    Buy the Stache frame in carbon. Add a Manitou Mattoc Pro IRT 120 fork and XTR 12 speed drive with two carbon wheelsets of different rim widths for 29+ and 2.6 tires.

    Top 3 Best Hardtail I can get right know out there 2019 ?-img_3020.jpg If your going to get a hardtail in this day and age you should get a pinion gearbox bike with 120mm of travel up front, modern geometry and a dropper! Ive just put over thousand miles on this guy and on a weekend trip in southern utah on very technical trails I've never had a better time riding then on my titanium pinion hardtail. I was able to clean everything because of the ability to shift gears on the fly and dump 3 gears to tackle a sandstone 40 degree boulder that I didn't see until I was 10 feet in front of it. Really is amazing technology would be a shame to just get another "hardtail". Just food for thought

    so confusing yet tempting too, MY question:

    Can the Roadmaster model be used on Trails or must it only be ridden on the Road as it's name suggests,
    or would that more depend more on the OP's level of biking skills and fitness?

    The moment you mentioned XC, I thought of this:

    Chinese open mold carbon hardtail frame (can read up on what's reputable among people into this stuff at chinertown)

    With parts from this thread:

    https://forums.mtbr.com/weight-weeni...0-1094616.html

    This is not an endorsement from me. I'm just simply voicing what popped up in my mind.

    If I were into hardtails, I'd be considering two kinds:
    - a short wheelbase responsive lightweight hammerfest-friendly HT (e.g. Honzo CR)
    - a long wheelbase stable and gravity-friendly HT (e.g. Pole Taival)

    Rather have multiple bikes, than 1 expensive one.

    Hypothetical person (OP) has a $9k budget for a hardtail and you link a Chinese carbon frame? Then follow that up with a steel frame that takes a 150mm fork and costs $650?

    That's funny.

    If you know nothing about hardtails why are you making bike suggestions in such threads?
    Rigid SS 29er
    SS 29+
    Fat Lefty
    SS cyclocross
    Full Sus 29er (Yuck)

    Stop asking how much it weighs and just go ride it.

    I don't think the OP is a troll. Looks like he's in Brazil and english isn't the first language the OP uses.

    Agreed, the thread is vague and the budget is vague but nothing the OP has posted makes me want to close the thread.

    Why's the OP buying three hardtails?

    Wish I had that kind of money laying around.

    OK, fair enough. I'll kindly see my way out.

    (This thread started shortly after I heard a bunch of Sock accounts were deleted and there was a bunch of new accounts starting very trolly type threads. This one fit the mold to a Tee. Feel free to delete my silly comments)

    Where do you find this bike and at what price?

    If you (OP) want huge bang for your buck (I have no idea what you actually want) this is the most popular factory-direct offering on the market right now.

    TanTan FM-199B

    - $450 + $75 shipping
    - 1020g for 19"
    - T800 carbon fiber construction
    - Every frame is tested to 130% safety standards
    - 2-year warranty, great aftersale service
    - Custom factory-quality powdercoat painting available ($50+)
    - 2 weeks from payment to delivery, worldwide
    - Scott Scale geometry
    - Suitable for 100mm-130mm travel forks

    In a double-blind test, 99.9% of haters on this thread would never know the difference between an equivalently built $3000 Scott Scale frameset and this $500 frameset. If they could, I'd love to hear specifics.

    I ride the 29+ version of this frame. Pic from a recent ride (with 27.5+):

    I built an NS Eccentric in 2017....extremely capable trail hardtail, boost spacing, works equally well as 27.5+ or 29er. Bike is essentially indestructible.

    I took a look and it looks like they only sell the frames in the EU. The US site only shows complete bikes. How did you get your frame did they ship to the US?

    Chain reaction cycles.com shipped it to me....very reasonable as I recall. $289 plus some amount for shipping...Iíd do it again ó maybe build a CrMo version ó but they are continually out of stock

    Yeah the NS Bikes Eccentric Cromo 29 on Chain reaction looks amazing. The Ragleys are real nice also. They had a Octane One Prone 29 on sale for $164 which looks like a nice frame. The pricing on Chain reaction is just to good.
