I did love my mmmBop. 150mm Talas, 2×9 and decent wheels. Made me feel I could ride anything.
Only upgraded to full suss as I couldn’t keep up with a pal over rock gardens etc (he rides a Giant Anthem X2)… will probably rebuild it at some point if I can find the right forks.
No experience of those particular bikes but hardcore hard tails are much fun!Posted 6 years agokudos100Member
I have an NS surge and it is brilliant, the most fun frame I have owned. On singletrack and downhill it was supreme. Unfortunately I am just too damm tall to get away with riding a 15.5 inch bike for xc (even with a 450mm post!) I used it for everything and it is a brilliant all rounder if you are not 6’3 with long legs 😆
I will be stripping her down tomorrow, ready for sale, so if you are interested I can send you some pics.Posted 6 years ago
Debating whether to build a hardcore hardtail, are there any views on the charge blender or ns surge? Bike will be run with adjustable forks up to 140mm travel, 1 x 9/10 gearing and used for a bit of everything e.g. XC, trail centres, short evening blasts and DH days.Posted 6 years agoalexxxMember
I’ve got a full 853 dialled alpine with pikes that fits ur description to the tee! It’s excellent condition and all parts are practically new – I’m after £1000 for it as I only ride my downhill bike as I live in France now but my friend could bring it to the uk and post it 🙂Posted 6 years ago
