    If I was forced at gun point with my family held at ransom, the Highball.

    In reality, neither.

    Are you asking which is the least worst? because the Best Choice would obviously be a 26er 😡

    What were your requirments? As your list is quite varied.
    Must ask if you’ve considered

    4 Genesis High Latitude
    5 Whyte 729 (929)
    6 Kona Taro (2014 looks a better spec))
    7 Canfield Nimble9 or Yelli
    8 etc etc..

    or even this kona

    Can’t believe why people have such difficulty making their own decisions.

    Makes you wonder

    I’ve got three girlfriends in mind which should I go for?
    Julie, 5’4″, blonde, 36 chest, from Essex
    Kylie, 6’4″, ginger, BIG, from Scunthorpe
    Ting Tong Makadingdong, 5’10, beard, from the Philipines.

    Are any of the three bikes green, if so don’t go for that one.

    Buy the cube great spec for the price then 6 months you’ll know if you like/dislike 29er
    Go buy the highball frame and swap it all over and sell of your cube frame.
    That would have be my choice if I hadn’t already got a 29er and found It not my cup of tea.

    I’ve been looking at buying a new mountain bike these are my choices that I’ve got it down to:

    1 Santa Cruz high ball 29er
    2 Ragley Bigwig 29er
    3 Cube Reaction 29er

    help!!!!

    So are you saying not to buy any of these?

    Yep I didn’t 😀
    Though the Highball was the only one in my list that you’ve included.
    TBH the Ragley’s a tad lardy (like the High Lat) but might have more ‘feel/give’ than the ali Cube/HB, for me they were too staid geo wise (spec ain’t everything).

    Maybe the Highball if pushed, or maybe the Ragley.. even now, I’m not sure what I’d choose again. It’s ‘ard to pick a winner, and test rides aren’t always that easy to get!

    I can’t believe the cheek of it. Coming on a mountain bike forum to ask opinions and advice about mountain bikes.

    Please try to think how your actions will affect others before making such reckless actions next time.

    Are you under the impression that people on a mountain bike forum might actually want to talk about mountain bikes?

    Your sort aren’t welcome here.

    Your sort aren’t welcome here.

    Thank you for you’re excellent advice, but I’m afraid this time I’m going to ignore it. My post was simply a comment on the often fruitless “what xxxx should I buy” posts that are so common here. What socks. What arse grease. What stem. What screwdriver. What tyre. If people find it difficult to assimilate information and come to a decision without the often misplaced advice of the collective then I bow down.

    Buzz1110 good luck with your quest, but you now have extra eight bikes to consider due to the advice given to you. I’d still have a Santa Cruz, wanted one for about 25 years but never had the spare money.

    I’d wait for a Santa Cruz 650b hard tail. Surely got to be one soon. If you want bigger wheels that is.

    Russians? Or do you mean Persians?

    Or am I less street than I thought? 😉
