- What's a good alround aliminium hardtail frame?
Look to upgrade the frame on my shop bike to something that I can use to go too glentress and also dart about town on etc.
Currently have a GT ruckus onepointzero which I quite like, however if there’s something better that’s not too pricey I wouldn’t mind upgrading it.
Anyone got any suggestions on what’s a good all round aluminium frame, if you have any photo’s that would also be cool!Posted 5 years agoGachetMember
Cove Stiffee, currently almost half price from Chain Reaction:
If the 17.5″ fits, I’d definately go for that. I’ve had one since last August built up with 130mm forks and fairly light but strong parts and it’s easily the best alloy hardtail I’ve ridden. Lightish, very responsive, climbs fine and is a great descender with the slack head angle. They’re not as harsh a ride as some people make out, although I run a 2.3″ tyre and plenty of seatpost showing.Posted 5 years agosmiffMember
wow the price.. i got an old one very much cheaper than that. new ones are slacker, probably (even) more fun, and stronger. mine’s scary light, feels like a coke can.Posted 5 years agoClobberSubscriber
Chumba HX1 here too. Very cheap at the moment.
Great service from Si at Progressive
The frame is really nicely made and finished. Surprisingly compliant ride for a hardtail, never mind an Aluminium one, but also stiff where it needs to be. I also think it looks fantastic.
I keep thinking I should just keep to 29er like my other bikes but I can’t bring myself to part with it…Posted 5 years ago
