    New question here. Frame Recommendations (I have a limited budget)

    I can only spend 250-300 dollars.

    Azonic Evolution II '04 $239 removeable drops, no seat collar included


    or
    Mountain Cycle Rumble '04 $279 removeable drops, seatpost collar included


    The build will be mainly used for "All Mountain"
    light drops <5' and gnar trail

    I have a Vanilla RL 100 that I am changing to 125 soon, Hone 170mm crank set, and RhynoLite XL wheelset w/ 2.25 TrailBears

    Please give your opinion... You all seem COR3, and I appreciate your opinions!

    How about going full suspension? I got a Norco Fluid for sale. Great trailbike, tough as nails and 5" travel to help smooth out those "gnar trail"

    Here's a LINK

    I have a 03 Giant AC1 frame I could sell you for $300 shipped. Check out the link in my signature saying "Got AC1?" It has adjustable travel from 4/5/6" which allows you to quickly adjust what sort of ride you're doing from XC to DH/FR. It's quite the fun bike to use to earn the downhills so to speak.

    is making a comeback.

    Turns out that five years of not mountain biking, really makes one strive to get back to it.

    Thanks,

    both of those look cool, but I am 6'1" and would need a Large in either.

    I am pretty sold on a HT though due2 low maintenance, and I will mostly be trail riding the bike

    Mine would fit you pretty good. (if you are interested in FS) I'm about 6'3" and used it for xc/all mountain type stuff.
