    I’m just playing around with the idea at the moment but I may be in the market sometime soon for a new hardtail frame to fit a 160mm Lyrik R coil fork.

    I’m after something cheapish, new but doesn’t have to be this year’s model, that can be ridden on trail centre type trails for a morning without completely killing me.

    Would most likely be transferring most of the bits from my current hooligan hardtail. Tapered/44mm headtube is essential, as is 26″ wheel fitting.

    As I’m only thinking about it at he moment price isn’t a huge factor but the cheaper the better is preferred, <£300 would be marvelous, much less would be perfect (yes, I’m a tightwad).

    Was originally thinking about something like a 456 but the forks are slightly too long for it.

    Any other suggestions?

    Cotic Bfe is £330 RRP, there must be a dealer who’d do you one for £300.

    I’m sure you’d already considered that though.

    Nope, hadn’t TBH, thought I’d ask around first, see what the great & good thought was worth while & ‘cheap’. 😀

    Would 10mm make all that much difference on a 456? For the price of them, I’d be inclined to chance it if I liked everything else about it (and there are enough second hand to take a punt).

    Over budget; Stanton Slackline 631 (£385)

    Cheaper than that, BFe and 456 are the first that spring to mind. Maybe an NS Surge?

    I’d push the boat out and spend the £400 On One want for the new 456C. It’s much better than any of the options suggested above.

    +1 for the blue pig. I used to have one and absolutely loved it. Only got rid to build a banshee spitfire.

    Must admit, i’m quite liking the look fo the Blue Pig.

    If I was going to really push the boat out I’d consider the 456Ti rather than the C but I think they’re both out of my ‘cheap’ remit.
