    Hardtail Decision

    In the market for a new hardtail frame, open for any suggestions you forum goers have. What would be a decent hardtail frame at a reasonable price that is good at handling the abuse freeriding can throw at you?

    I think steel is the thing for you. Just trying to minimize your options. It is much more forgiving and easily fixed if you broke a weld. New or well maintained used.
    Good luck.

    what type of riding do you consider "freeriding"?

    if you don't mind smallish DS-style geometry, the .243 frame is a good one. same with the Balfa Minuteman.

    Mainly ladder riding, nice size drops, urban, and dirt jumping is what I plan on doing.
