I am currently riding a 17.5' Trek Liquid 55, mainly ride singletrack trails and very light free ride around Bristol and Cwmcarn. Just occasionally feel that it is slightly too flimsy and that a bad landing could crack the frame. Been considering the 07 SX trail as a replacement frame but a bit worried about it being a bit too 'hardcore' for what I do. Is a Liquid 55 ok for that type of riding or would I benefit from a medium sized SX trail?
Also, don't want to get a new frame and immediately have to buy new brake hoses as the ones from my Liquid are too short, should most of it transfer across ok?
Thanks for you help.
