    Yes. Cove G-Spot is a solid mount. But I gotta tell ya that I'd personally go for the Transition.

    i checked out the transition, out them alll im leaning towards the dirtbag, but the build kits aren't specced exactly to my likeing with hussefelt bars and cranks, also the pedels and rims, not liken them.... so how do i get the dirtbag with the stuff i want but keep it around 4 g's? plus i'd be goin with the totem kit, dhx5 and sevens, x9... so thats already $3600, and if yor wondering why this spec list, its because i want the bike as bombproof and agile as possible for the money.

    you could always buy the frame and build it your self you should also look on ebay i know there was a dirtbag on ebay for about half the normal price

    A Yeti ASX would actually work quite nicely.

    or a Cove G spot would be great too.
