OK I just broke it down and I don't really have a preference anymore. I like SC and Rockmountains because I have rode them. All bikes have downfalls and strong points, problem is I can't buy them all and ride them to get an idea. There seems to be a diversified array of different frames being ridden in here, so some help on picking a new frame. Coupe of others I've been looking at is the sinister 9, karpeil army (yes I know it's not being made anymore). I don't need a front der. per say, but would be nice. I like to ride campus, DH, huck drops (flat or transition), go fast and glide through rough terrain.
