Cheap 29er hooligan hardtail. Does it exist?

I have a Honzo and its a great bike. A bargain at the reduced prices now. The 2013 has a bolt thru rear end if that’s important to you.
Started with a 120mm Reba but changed recently to a 130mm Revelation which has made a far bigger difference than I ever thought. If the trails ever dry up I’m looking forward to getting out on it more.
The Ragley Bigwig is due out soon and is cheaper than most of its competitors. Maybe worth a look?Posted 5 years agogreatbeardedoneMembersi-wilsonMember
househusband, really? I always answer emails, and have been in business all this time. I stopped frequenting this forum as much though, had better things to do 🙂
Chumba availability has been patchy (sorted now) but i have always been around 🙂
Sorry if i missed you for whatever reason.Posted 5 years ago
Genesis High Latitude has caught my eye before. It’s a definite contender. SS-ability of the Chumba is good though.
Thanks gbo but the Pinnacle and Voodoo seem a bit meh. Draped in low-end kit that I’d want to replace straight away
Anything else I should look at?Posted 5 years agonicolaisamMember
2nd Ride on the Stache today,seems very playful,rolls well,seemed to like the nasty rocky and mussy tracks i took it on.
I have a Nicolai AC aswell,so the Stache is a 2nd bike,I like it,was great fun,and worked my legs as i had become used to full suspension.Posted 5 years ago

Nicolaisam, meant vs the Ramin 1 at £500, not vs the Trek, dunno much about that tbh. cheezpleez, the Ramin’s a pretty ‘poppy’ bike for a 29er (esp if you space the fork out to 120mm) and if you want that in a 29er I’d look for a stiff fork, wheels, not too long a top tube / rear end, slacker etc. The most playful bikes will be the more extreme geometry bikes though, not the more readily available complete options. Depends what price you’re looking at – Pinnacle, Genesis are prob the closest around/at a grand, above that there’s more options, the honzo looks like a great deal at £1200. Sorry if that’s all stating the obvious )Posted 5 years ago
Had a proper go on a Yelli Screamy today and I now believe the hype. I’ve never ridden a bike that was so eager to get all sideways and unnecessary. F.U.N.
It’s convinced me that I’m after something with similar geometry. The Buzzard looks favourite at the moment but it’s looking likely to be a weighty old frame like the Honzo and I’d like to end up with something that’s not too much of a porker.
The Genesis High Latitude is also still in the running, although I’m guessing the frame is still chunky. Anyone know frame weight and if they’re warrantied to run a 120mm fork?Posted 4 years ago
