    Need help with a New Frame

    Okay so here it is...I need a new frame to replace a 4 year old Jamis Dakar. Needs to be FullSus, for general XC, epic type riding. I am 5'8" 165-170 and ride aggressively. That means I like to run over stuff and think any bike (even rigid) is capable of 3-4 foot drops. (some days not every day... )
    Now the bad part is I am on a budget so unfortunately no high end boutique stuff (it will have to wait) I am looking at a Kona Kikapu deluxe for $600 and want to hear if anone out there has a better idea.

    I will consider just about anything - I am pretty open minded..

    Thanks

    Duh, guess I should have put that in the post???

    I was looking to spend around $600, I guess $800 would be the MAX

    So to recap FS - aggressive XC - 600-800 bones

    Thanks
