Sorry, just assumed from your wording that you were gonna get a frame and build it up.

The 2006 Enduro is a great frame. Slightly shorter travel than the SX, (as far as I know) but you could happily ride it on regular singletrack without feeling that you're lugging around far more than you need to.

You might want to check out the 2008 Specialized Pitch Pro as well.

Giant have the Trance, Trance X and even the Reign for people who want some kind of all rounder. The Anthem's not really aimed at "one bike for everything" riders....

The Fuel EX8 is a very, very nice bike though.

Re: Stumpy or Blur LT

I have a choice, a Blur LT 07 frame or an 08 Stumpjumper Elite complete bike. I would have to put my old 130mm Mazz drop off forks on the Blur LT. If you have kit worthy of a Blur LT lying around the house, go for it. The fact that you're talking about putting a Drop Off on it suggests maybe that i...

the honest answer is that the spec is a bit better on a hardtail compared to a full sus (at pretty much any price to be honest) but in my opinion, depending on what you want to ride, a full sus will give you a better ride The spec on the Malt 4 isn't just a "bit" better. It blitzes the FS...

Specialized Pitch vs Marin Rock Springs

Greetings All, I'm in the process of choosing an all-mountain full susser, and I think I've narrowed it down to two: the Specialized Pitch Pro and the Marin Rock Springs. To get an idea of how the Pitch rides, I took an Enduro for a test ride and loved everything about it, except for the fork, which...

Yes, roadies blow goats - MTBers blow each other. It sounds like you're saying gayness is worse than beastiality. Sounds a bit homophobic, perhaps you're a repressed homo. Anyway, considering the female MTB population is growing steadily, I'm quite happy with that situation.... the name comes from ...

To be honest, I think a certain MBUK mod, who shall remain nameless, shouldn't have been a mod on MBUK, let alone this site. Childish banter one minute, banning people on a whim the next; one set of rules for his mates, another set of rules for everyone else. With any luck, we won't see any of that ...
