    .243 FR or Transition Trail-or-Park

    I'm having a hard time deciding what frame to get to replace my busted aluminum hardtail. I definitely want a steel frame. I've narrowed my decision to a .243 FR or a Transition Trail-or-Park. I'm probly trying to get too much out of either of these frames, because it will be my do everything bike from Trails to DH. I plan on geting a Pike for street/urban/dj/trails and a 66 for DH next year to run on the same frame.

    Both frames seem to have similar geometries, but the .243 is a bit lighter (on the good side). On the negative, the .243 has a short seat tube (I think that I can squeeze out enough post for trail riding) and a shorter wheelbase (which isn't as good for DH)

    Thanks

    I don't have much experience with erther frame, buthte customer service at Transition is incredible. The ToP looks like a great frame and I think that is the way I would go.
