i want something i can thrash dh and plough through things when the mood takes but also something that wont sanitize the southern trails too much.
i have a HT and i've already got a FR bike but its a bit burly for most of my riding. (bloody great on steep rocky trails the lakes mind)
i think i need something adjustable from 4-6" lightweight and capable of taking a 6" fork. (moon on a stick?)
cotic hemlock would be great but A)they are bloody expensive, B)a bit prone to bending/snapping by all accounts, and C)i was told my riding 'is not suitable for this frame' by cotic - which confused me as i figured it would suit me bang on.
so what else is out there suitable for general ragging down hills/wales&lakes epic rocky descents, jumps/shore and occasionally a bit of uphill etc bearing in mind i'm no freeride god but i love a bit of jumpy/droppy rockgarden fun - thats why we have suspension right?
anyway i 'need' a new bike and i need some inspiration as to what to get. not bothered by brand just one that works and wont cost me a kidney.
