    Well I decided , I went with a 2018 Meta HT AM Origin (it seems to be better spec'd than the 2019), and I couldnt find a Nukeproof Scout 275 Race.
    The bike was on discount and cost me $879, and I picked up a slightly used Rock Shox Yari for $300, which is a massive upgrade over the Recon RL.
    Dropper and tubeless bits & pieces are ordered.
    I also moved my beer cap stem cap over from my Fatbike.
    The colour is absolutely awesome, and it looks even better with the full black Yari fitted.

    oh, and the bike rips, Im off to try it at a pumptrack this arvo.

    Decided going for a Meta too. Now I just can't decide if I keep my old high end parts and buy a frame only or a completely new origin bike with the Recon RL and the cheap stuff. To be honest I'm not sure if a hardtail needs Pikes on the front as it will be more or less a funbike to me.
    How does the formula rear hub feel or sound like, does it have enough engagement points for techy or almost trialsy stuff? The rear hub is probably my only "fear" with the origin specced bike as I ride trials a lot.
    Also if someone has experience about the Recon RL on the Meta. 150mm travel on the 2019 sounds pretty flexy for a 32mm stanchions.. Otherwise Im assuming Yari kind of feel damping wise.
