    Time for a new hardtail, help me decide!!!!

    Well I just got a buyer for my Enuro SX Trail, and I acually made a profit on the sale so i'm not all that sad. The bike just wasent getting the ride time it deserved.

    So now my only bike is a pretty beat up 05 P3 frame and all the components off a 05 Demo (fork is a z150 fr). I have been looking around for a frame to replace the P3 frame but there are just too many choices ! I ride my bikes pretty hard so I need a frame that can really take a beating. I pretty much need it to be suitable to do it all; FR, light DH, DJing and park/street riding.

    Here are some of the frames that I am considering, please feel free to coment on any of them or suggest some other frame.

    Astrix Union
    Avent Jibster
    Azonic Fiend
    Banshee Morphine
    On-One Jibster
    PCD Racing Kingpin
    Specialized P3 (06)
    Transition Trail or Park

    I really like the Azonic Fiend but you can never go wrong with a Morphine. Good luck with your choice!

    The Morphine is a burley bike. You can beat it up pretty good.

    You guys think the ToP with be "ok" with 150mm up front?? Oh and I will NOT be running this bike SS so the ToP would not be my #1 choice because it does not have a replaceable derailleur hanger.

    Any one know anything about the Azonic Fiend it looks like a nice allternative to the Morphine.

    If you aren't going SS then go for the Morphine.

    have you checked out .243 frames?
    i've only heard good things about them, but avail. might be limited.
    transition's t-o-p is pretty solid from everything i've heard, but if you're doing 'freeriding' or want something more pedal-able, i would check out their Vagrant; it might not be bike-park-able enough for you, though.

    O 150 mm. Banshee Morphine. Not sure how good it would be with 150 though.

    I'm getting a new frame and a 2007 36 talas and the frames I'm thinking of getting :mountain cycle rumble (currently in 1st), vagrant,mob,morphine,p3 (2006),fiend, union and a woodman frame.

    I cant find a faulr w/ the rumble and I think it looks the best. You shouls check it out. It also has replacable drop outs for added diversity. It is also bombproof
    If it works...... do it!
