    whats a good freeride

    hey i really need a new freeride bike but i'm having trouble desiding what bike to get, i want about 7 inches fround and rear, nice components that will hold at whistler, i would like it to have good pedaling on flat grounds but its not a must, any suggestions?

    There are dozens of bikes that fit your description. Narrow it down a bit for us. Price would be a good start.

    hmmm. Kona stinky. a bighit...not too good at pedaling. An SX trail, it has 6 inces in the rear and front, but it's whistler worthy and pedals well. also there are many more... just gotta luck. if you don't have much money look at a haro extreme.

    Scour any LBS's in your area for clearances on last year's bikes, you could probably find a Stinky Dee-lux for close to $2k. But yeah, sales on things like the '04 Bit Hit, Ironhorse SGS (DH-Team is 2k at supergo), maybe a Bullit. Is the SX Trail really $2000? I thought it was way more.

    ...and has a super laid back seatpost. And if I'm not mistaken, a single pivot suspension design directly actuating the shock, as opposed to the linkage system used on the Giant to help reduce bob... ah well.... looks pretty at least... sort of?

    asx....

    I was going to suggest the asx, and then who ever it was's deal sounds really nice. I'd check into that. If not that, I'd have to represent my bike's company and say get a Kona. (stinky dee on clearance sounds good)
