Looking for some opinions on the best aggressive hard tail for trail riding? Looking for something that will allow a 5" fork, head angle around 68 or so, and just a good all around ride.
Look forward to your thoughts.
i'm on a santa cruz chameleon and it's pretty freaking fun.
it has cam mccaul's old slopestyle fork on it (which probably only gets .25-inches of travel, but sits like a 4 or 5-inch fork), 30-inch wide bars and aggressive tires. it's a hoot, but i will admit, i miss some squish when things get really rough.
depending on what you ride regularly, maybe a steel frame option could be fun and more forgiving?
The Chameleon and the Transition AM are the two bikes I have been looking at, and thought maybe all the rippers on here might have some sleepers I didn't know about.
You running all 3 rings?
Hope all is well man and enjoy the winter.
DONT FORGET ABOUT THE SINISTER RIDGE......... I HAVE A CHAMELEON THAT I HAVE BEEN RIDING FOR 6 SEASONS NOW WITH MILES OF SMILES......
