    Short chainstays Urban HT?

    Looking for a hardtail that would stand up to street/dirt jumping. The catch is, chainstays should be as short as possible (yet not a trials type of bike) and the whole thing must be as light as possible. Any ideas/recommendations? Looking for used only because of a limited budget.


    Thanks!
    For the love of Oi

    P1 or 2

    I like my P1, slightly modified. I see a few people with them and so far they like them.

    Woodman, I second that. They have many models, freeride ht's to full on trials frames light and cheap too.
    The Elite or D-S at 2.1kgs and 2.5 kgs both have 400mm (15.75") chainstays.

    P1? No way, Those things are tanks!

    Woodman is the ticket!!

    What you're describing is a woodman elite to the T. I rode trials for years (still do) and love my elite. Light, strong, chainstays are 15.5 and tons of tire clearance. Gazza 24 3.0's should fit (I run Arrow 24x3.0's, 2.7 static width) but a chainguide cuts down on the clearance. Plus the chainstay bridge is so wide anything bigger than a 34 tooth puts the chainring out too far for my taste, but this thing is unbelievable, check it out ....lata

    I like my woodman elite. It does have short chainstays, real short. It's also fairly light too considering that you can ride just about anything on it. Btw, hi everyone this is my first post
    lets see if i can get a picture of of it

    Just got my woodman...

    I just got my woodman built up. I love it, its the nicest hardtail I've ridden. If you want short stays, a beefy frame and awesome geometry, I say go for this frame. Now you just gotta find someone who has it Took me a couple months to get my hands on this one.

    Wow, that's probably more Woodman frames than I've ever seen in one place before.

    Evil Imperials have a 15.5" chainstay setting as well. Nice and short. Sweet frames.
