Right, sold my hardtail early this year to get a full suss (which is great). Last weekend i punctured the lowers on my forks in wales :cry: so this week my mate lent me his hardtail to ride the local trails and i have to get another one!
I want a fairly light and sturdy steed but havent got a big wedge at the minute, so was thinkin of buying bits and pieces when i can and build it up. Seeing as the exchange rate is so feckin good against the $ im wondering if i should import the frame from the states as i may be able to swipe a bargain?
Most of the riding is gonna be fairly flat forest trails and im trying to learn to jump abit better so a strong frame is essential and singlespeed maybe an option.
To be honest i aint even been riding bikes for a whole year again yet so my knowledge is limited but im very practical and keen so any ideas of frames or even whole builds would be much appreciated.
Get your dog off my lawn!
