- New Bike Build: Which Frame?
Yeti – heard way too many horror stories about them direct from owners.
Santa Cruz – overpriced IMO and they’re always a bit behind on geo. Way too much anti squat on all the ones I’ve ridden (admittedly not the Megatower).
Specialized – that’s silly money for a frame from a mass market brand.
Personally, I’d be looking at something like a Geometron at that money.

I’ve looked at the smaller niche brands, thing is I keep my bikes for a while and I don’t want to take the risk on one, they go belly up and I can’t get spares, or they simply stop machining the parts as they make new bikes.
I want carbon, I want a known brand and it’s between these three, well teo. The Yeti is out. Read some absolute howlers about them tonight.Posted 1 month agoTraceySubscriber
Abigale will need to throw a leg over a couple of the sizes before we make any decisions. Also need to move some stuff to make more room in the garage after adding a Stumpy ST to the fold.Posted 1 month ago
Abigale has been putting it through its paces in Wharncliffe for the last couple of weekends and is enjoying it.
Had to go medium as the large felt too long for her.AkersSubscriber
I heard mixed reviews on the Megatower. I rode with a guy recently who rode a Hightower LT, he demo’d a Megatower and hated it. The ride on Cruz’s always seems to be marmite.
Any reason you’ve ruled out the likes of the Ibis Ripmo, Pivot Firebird 29, Nukeproof Mega 290c and Orbea Rallon?Posted 1 month ago
