I'm loving the BFe275's, Stanton switchbacks and Ragley blue pigs. I want a steel riot bike to show up full sussers at Enduro.
Any more options, the Vitus VXR is very bang for buck also.

What would you chose??

Up until recently I had a Bird Zero. Best HT I ever rode.

A Transition TransAM would be pretty high up on my list

Never ridden one, but like the look of Orange P7, I do like my hardtail frames more traditional in design, no frills but means business look.

TransAM looks insane albeit more basic components.

I just built this, have to say its rather fun and has the added bonus of saving my bearings / shocker on the full sus.

Also, strangely, it has an amazing level of grip. Its a Ragley Piglet, currently £215 for the frame on crc down from £400, The Blue Pig is cheap too

Sadly I am now! They only have 16" ones left!

I mulled it over for quite a while, didnt want to spend Stanton or Cotic money cause I already own an xc bike, and this is as well as, nearly went for the new On One Dee Dar but the name and strange back end welding put me off.

Goes like stink like, up and down, is a bit of a revelation!

Cotic sometimes do flash sales as well, take the price of the Bfe down to sub £300
