- 120mm Hardtail choice….
Hi there, long time mountain biker, first time member
I am trying to find someone who will let me ride a ragley piglet, I have been wondering about a new frame for a while and since putting 120mm RLT Ti forks on my orange, the extra length over the old 100mm just does not feel quite right on the frame.
I have been pondering over a steel hardtail for months now and think the new Stanton will be too slack (no pun intended) for the all day rides (please correct me if you own one and I am wrong), have also considered the Genesis Altitude and transition TRANSAM…
any thoughts and comments would be much appreciated.Posted 6 years agoKryton57Subscriber
I have the Genesis Altitude (now Latitude).
Superb bike IMO, a live ride that gets more capable with more speed. MBR are testing the base model as one of thier Longtermers and are loving it – final conclusions in next months copy IIRC.
I run mine at 120 for every day use and racing, most recently at SITS.
It just doesnt have the kudos of the Soul, and is definately more made for XC than AM, which is where the Soul will beat it with a bigger fork.Posted 6 years agotakisawa2Subscriber
If budget is tight you could do a lot worse than a std Inbred. Seriously, they ride lovely at 120mm. I had a Soul & a second gen Inbred, both run at 120mm, & although the Soul was obviously a pound lighter, the Inbred was just as good to ride. I’d probably still have one now, be it not for my new found preference for my clown wheeled Inbred. 🙂Posted 6 years ago
