Recommend me a good full sus frame guys!….
Well to keep this thread short, im looking at building a half decent bike for the summer rides around the woods and local trails ect ect….
Nothing too heavy! i don't do big drop offs. I like fast singletrack. You get the idea 😀 I'm only after the frame at this stage, this way i can build my own bike with the parts i desire 🙂
Should i go carbon? Who knows, if you could give me your opinions that'll be great!

I would prefer to find a frame that i would like, then search for a second hand version. this way i could save alot on budget wise. And for the travel – nothing too long, 5 inches max!
I like the look of the blur! im going down to rutland cycles this weekend to test a few bikes out. Theres just so much to choose from!Posted 8 years agotazzymtbMember
I would also add:
Marin mount vision
felt virtue 2007- version (it was the lighter more xc version)
voodoo canzo- the non-halfrauds version with the DT swiss shock
Kona hei hei
gary fisher hi-fi
have owned/had decent playitme on all of the above and they are all very good- the marin was brilliant but a bit chunky. The felt was truly fantastic, but a string and glue back end and big rocky bits of peak district made a bit nervous!Posted 8 years agoz1ppyMember
I'd suggest a 4" travel bike if it's you first full susser.
Boardman are fine and cheap if you strapped, Giant Anthem is touted as the 'reasonably priced
carracebike (see the killer deal on the X3 on Paul's Cycles or you could splash out an buy the carbon version), or a Santa Cruz Superlight, as there ace bikes*
Can't see any argument to go for Carbon frame, as most seem to cost you an extra £1000 and only losses a few grams of weight (no other reason to avoid them though).
* I don't own any of these bikes, but would happily own any of them.Posted 8 years agoianvMember
Boutique bike prices take the Pi"" at the moment. Go for a previous year model from a big name to get the best deals. eg:Posted 8 years ago
