    Wrecker, I apologise.

    Accepted. Just don’t be such a dick in future.

    recommending a few (very nice) bikes with rear suspension

    Did you not see the thread title? The OP? What makes you think he wants a hardtail? What sort of numpty therefore would recommend one?

    I currently ride a 180mm Bullit for everything apart from road and it feels a bit sluggish on up hills but it’s so much fun doing downhill and jumps on it. I’ve noticed that its making me a bit lazier with line choice and on drops though so I’ve started using my hardtail every now and then and am considering a longer top tubed HT which I can use for everything again. When I get back on the HT it feels really stiff and hard going, riding a FS all the time softens you up I think as I never used to feel this rough riding HT!

    I’ve previously owned a pitch which I really liked, but now have an alpine 160 which I like more on the descents, but have yet to climb anything big on.

    For me a pitch with u-turn lyriks works really well as a do it all, great bikes!

    Sure did read it, that’s why I suggested a Pitch. I can understand you thinking that I suggested a hardtail to the OP though. You couldn’t see the whole post ’cause I was waving my willy in your face and obscuring your view 🙄 You could read that bit again if you want. Let it sink in maybe, then call me names if it makes you happy.

    Sorry Dom. For what it’s worth, I really don’t think there’d be much in it for any of the bikes around the 150-160mm mark. They may ride slightly differently, but they’ll do what you want of them. Spec, value for money and warranty/back-up are the things i’d look at.

    No worries – ST Forum is the one that most goes of tangent shall we say!

    Thanks for input – I agree im sure all are capeable i guess its what there built for!! I may plump for used if im honest! Make me a good saving……Although Carbon Zesty 2012 has my eye at 2800 – Light and i guess 140mm may actually suit me better if i really think about it.

    To many bloody choices and too many nice bikes!!!

    I’d have ordered the YT by now. Blingtastic and the weight and geometry look really promising.

    Suspension looks very Zesty/Spicy to my untrained eye.
