So I'm thinking of building up a fun shortish travel bike just to have fun on doing some 4x, trails etc.
I've been looking at 4x frames as they seem perfect for this (the long versions for that extra versitility), commencal meta 4x, transition double, santa cruz blur 4x, banshee rampant, and they all seem to be around the £400-600 mark which is a fair bit for a second hand frame.
Then I spotted the Nukeproof Rook which is about £640 on CRC for a new frame. It is classed as slope style frame, but you can play with the geometry by changing fork length (110mm-160mm) and you can get a long version.
Has anyone any opinions on the above frames or even the NP Rook? (which is rather tempting considering thats new rather than second hand)
