    Smile New HT for Christmas

    I'm currently wondering about which hardtail frame to get for Christmas.

    I'll be mostly be doing urban and dj on it, no budget limit as of now for the frame, and don't want it to be as burly as a Morphine.

    After some research, I've narrowed it down to a few bikes: Transition Trail or Park, Keewee Progressor (where to get one in the US?), Azonic Steel Head, and Mountain Cycle Rumble. I'm still open for suggestions though.

    If anyone has any experience with these frames, know anything about them, or have any suggestions, then please reply.

    P.S. I'm not interested in any of the P bikes because a few of my friends already have them.

    "not as burley as a Morphine"?
    um, the trail-or-park is waayy stronger than the morphine. beefy 4130, 8lbs vs 6lbs easton? i'd say thats a given.
    um, sounds like you could be a candidate for a .243. sweet geometry (or so i hear) and its still super strong but lighter than the transition.
    personally, i rode a steelhead and didn't like it. but there are a dozen people who love theirs.
    yeah, i would stay away from P bikes too.
    never see anyone who deals keewee, that could be hard to come by.
    the Le Toy 4 is a beefy 6lbs street frame. its made by 24 bikes, which is a french company but fairly easy to get. it has nice adjustable dropouts.
    i could go on forever.
    mostly, i would say try to ride something before you buy but i know that in many cases that's damn near impossible.

    You are being judged by the way you post, whether you like it or not, and aolese conveys the fact that you're ("ur") not too bright.

    p.s. The video was uninspiring, repetitious, and not very interesting. But at least he took the time to make one, unlike so many other folks.

    A norco frame like the 4 hun or something or the sasquach how ever you spell it. a p3 is nice too but if you don't like those picks i'd goo with the stealhead.

    honestly, i was thinking about getting the .243 but the DOC saves a lb. and truthfull i wanted the evil name.
    wish i could tell you how the E13 sliding dropouts are but alas...my frame will not arrive until january.

    i don't think you can go wrong with either.

    yeah, i called evil and talked to them and then called unreal cycles. so i am getting mine through unreal.
    building mine up with parts from my kona roast.
    might go SS during winter and then go trail for late spring/summer. not sure yet.
    i am going to order a Sherman Flick in the spring. new 05 model with 6" of travel.
    i can't wait.
    its going to be rad. (and red...blood red!)
