Enduro / All mountain frame for near enough £1000?

Can anyone recommend a frame for around £1k that could handle moderate DH runs whilst still being able to pedal uphill? Something like the Orange alpine 160, but a frame/rear shock combo only as I have some other components from my last bike ready to fit.

Could possibly look second hand too, so if there are any that would be around £1k used i'd be interested in hearing opinions of those.

Thanks!

    Nukeproof Mega?
    Titus El Guapo, £800 with a Cane Creek DB Air...?

    That's where I'm thinking of putting my money once the old student loan arrives next week :lol:

    A fair deal, but hardly an enduro bike, too steep and the shock setup compromises performance. A good deal if you want a long travel xc machine, the enduro would be a better bet. Also I'm not surprised that frame is on sale, for a huge brand like specialized the price of that frame is extortionate!! But I bet some numpties payed full whack for it because of the name.

  • So, nuke proof mega am and the Titus el guapo both look good, probably swaying more towards the mega after reading some reviews. Not much in it though. Then I noticed the cove gspot for sale on CRC for less than 1200...

    Can't find many reviews of the gspot, would anyone recommend one?
