- What Temp Trail/AM Frame to Buy?
I got a Saracen Ariel 140X for £350 off of EBay. I run it with Lyriks usually set at 150mm. It came with 3 sets of dropouts so you can run anything you like at the back and I took 3 1/2 minutes off my PR round Cathkin Braes last night, although admittedly that’s coming from a pretty low baseline.Posted 4 years ago
Looking for opinions here.
I might need to send my Liteville 301 in for inspection to Germany and it means I’d need something to stand for it for some time.
Mainly looking at S/H market since the frame will probably be for sale after LV is back.
So, ideally it needs to accept Marzocchi 55 @ 150 mm, have rear thru axle, and be pedalable too.
Currently thinking of NP Mega, Mondraker Foxy (if I get hold of the thru-axle version), maybe Mondraker Dune.
Any other options I’m missing out there? The thru axle requirement puts many good frames out of consideration and closes a big chunk of S/H market, but the more interesting it becomes 🙂
Any advice (and if you have anything to offer too!!) is welcome.
Thanks!Posted 4 years agothisisnotaspoonMember
What size are you after?
I’ve a medium Pitch which I’m looking to swap to a large. Hardly used, shock was custom tuned by LOCO for rocky stuff and a 90kg rider.
If anyone’s got a large/19″ tuner 6-pack, enduro, pitch, ariel, or other frame dsigned arround 160mm Lyrics, in similar condition, let me know.Posted 4 years ago
