Ok, so brief background I've raced motocross for about 15years but due work and life in general getting in the way I don't get to race as much as I'd like.
So I'm wanting to get myself a bike to help keep fit but mainly for fun, inbetween/when I'm unable to go racing motocross.
I will be riding basically whatever and where-ever I can, and being from a motocross background you can be sure I'll be trying to jump of anything I can.
With this in mind I've been researching bikes and frames to see what best suits what I'm after.
First up is the Cotic Rocket. It sounds pretty much ideal, surprisingly good at climbing and a real blast on the descent providing tons of feedback and jumps well.
My only real concern would probably be the bolts in the rear triangle that stick out a bit may catch on my legs.
Then I came across the Mondraker Foxy XR, and the forward geometry really intrigues me especially as it's geometry more inline with what I have on my motocross bike.
Reviews of it seems very favorable, with it providing a very direct feeling/handling and also a very capable rear suspension setup.
A complete Foxy XR is simply far far too expensive for me to consider but, I can however buy a frame for £1500 (though I'm not sure if it comes with a shock or not which could be a deal breaker), which is roughly the same price as a Cotic Rocket frame would cost me.
So I'm looking peoples opinions on both of these frames to help me decide which is going to be the better route for me to go down.
