    Hope Slack Hardtail In SA

    Hello Gents,

    I am fairly new here and just recently started riding again. I has been about 7 years and I came from a BMX(8-12) and mx(12-18) background(currently 25). Looking for a new HT(riding a shit giant revel 29er) that can handle some aggressive riding and equal abuse.

    Wondering what LBS y'all would suggest checking out( i have been to a few) that would carry a decent priced ~1300 27.5 HT in our area.

    PS- I have been looking at the DB SYNC'R but cant find it in a store.
    THanks,
    Dan

    Probably won't find a syncr in any store but I highly recommend it. Awesome bike. I have a 2017 and went on a whim when ordering it (didn't do anything but research and watch YouTube videos on it the few there are) and glad I did. I did get the military/corporate discount thing which was part of the reason I went with it over any other bike but even without that, I'd still be happy. Nimble, light, well spec'd, very fun.

    Thanks Man I ended up getting a tokul 3 from action bikes on sale for like 600 and i have been loving it. It is a plus bike and just a blast to ride. Needs some thicker tires though as i have punctured my sidewalls like 3 times already

    That's going to be a challenge with plus tires. If the sidewalls are thick enough to resist punctures, the tires (at this technology level) are way too heavy. That's the reason I don't have a plus bike now. That being said, If you feel like subbing a 29" wheel in with regular tires on it, you have that option until tire technology catches up.

    I ran 27.5x3 Nobby Nics on my Ragley Bigwig for just under a year, never ripped or punctured; though I was just getting back into biking then. On my Yeti SB5+, I ran the stock Maxxis Rekon 2.8s for ~6mo and finally slashed them landing on a sharp as hell rock. Both offered great grip on rocks, but not always the best leaning over in loose gravel/sand.

    I'm going to give Minions a try next, looking for more of a squared off tire.
