    unless you're loaded I say bombproof HT. Since you're downgrading from a 5-6" travel bike, most frames you find aren't gonna be able to handle anything a well-built hardtail couldn't. The benefits of HT's are also pretty nice too: cheaper, more pedaling efficient, and generally lighter. Ultimately it all depends on what you are going to use the bike for, but hardtails are way more versatile than a lot of people think.

    My X2 has zero standover with a Z150 on it, but it fits perfectly to ride with a 60mm stem. I like it, but it's a pig. :D

    Check out a new rear shock, I have had a few different ones and i think it makes a huge difference in ride quality on my x2 and x3. Smooths it out so much more.

    Peace,
