    Hardtails with 1.5" headtubes

    Hey guys i did a shearch and i couldnt find much . Im looking for somewhere to put my breakout for a while and i want a hardtail . Its a 7" breakout plus . Now i need a hardtail WITH A 1.5" HEADTUBE . I have the breakout so dont bother mentioning a frame with a standerd one headtube . I saw a banshee morphine that looked lovely but im not sure if it comes in 1.5" ?

    Banshee Morphine doesn't have a 1.5. The Evil Imperial does however as well as the Cannondale Chase. Those are the only ones I can think of off the top of my head but I'm sure there's many more.

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

    Nicolai has one too, can't recall the name...

    There aren't enough of these frames IMO. I'd prefer a 1.5 bike, if I want a 1 1/8 fork I'll get some cheap reducer cups...

    I think the Nicolai one is the bmxtb or something along those lines. There's one on ebay that's about to end at about $600 brand new.

    That's it...pretty similar to the Evil Imperial in that the top tube is actually two seperate box section. Nifty looking, especially since Nicolai does some cool paint and ano jobs. $600 is a steal considering that to buy it from Nicolai would require you to trade in bucks for Euros, so you'd loose quite a bit.

    The Imperial can run a pretty long fork from what I've seen. It'll be cheaper than a Nicolai too. The Breakout is an awesome fork...you now just need an equally awesome frame.

    I know there are more options, unfortunately I also know that I am retarded and can't remember any.

    the breakout is not meant to be ridden hard in 5 inch mode apparently, it'll bust the travel adjusters if ya beat it down in 5, good enough for XC though.

    Haro makes some REALLY nice 1.5 hard tails. They go for pretty cheap too! I know someone who picked a 1.5 17 inch Haro for $230.

    I've always wondered what a hardtail with a 7 inch fork would feel like!! That's got to be one hell of a killer combo for the super steep stuff. Even better than a dual suspension.
