    A good 200mm front suspension hard tail.

    I'm looking for a bike that would have at least a 200mm front suspension and a hard tail but with a reasonable price of 900 to 1200.

    well isnt that like a ton of travel for a hardtail?
    i almost put a marz 888 on my hardtail but realized how supid it wuld be...not to mention it would snap my frame.
    Unless you make or modify a frame, i dont think you'll find one- it would have to be custom built

    I see a lot of person riding a Evil Imperial frame with 200 mm forks... but it all depends on your frame .... I would not try to put a 200 mm frork on my hardtail

    Whos the one who can't spell? Why use incomplete words when you are using a keyboard? Aolese is ghey.

    200mm fork is overkill, and beyond that most frames aren't made for such height at the front. You are limiting yourself to bike like the evil imperial which can take a long fork. Makes for a very difficult ride with lots of rake.

    The OP may want to check out the new Specialized P.All Mountain. I saw one in the shop the other day and it was pretty cool.

    http://www.norco.com/bikes/mountain/...il/rampage.php or http://www.norco.com/bikes/mountain/...tail/manik.php

    the manik is a little over your budget, but its the closest thing ive found. 160mm travel. if you put anymore on, get a FS bike

    ths sluggo is closer, and also, not to be mean, but there are other bike companies besides norco, just like you can order from places other than jenson and even with shipping it will be cheaper sometimes.

    i know theres other companies, but sadly enough, my homepage is www.norco.com and tthe reason i prefer to order only from jenson is because they charge you duties, then they pay it, so when it gets to my door, theres no unexpected costs.

    also, i find Norco has one of the best varieties of bikes. ive looked at other companies, but Norco always has something to compete with

    so why do i see people that always support companies like specialized, but no one complains? since i joined this forum, my expeirence has atleast multiplied 4 times. i have learned a lot on here, and sometimes im just repeating stuff ive seen, but in my own words (yes, i know what plagarism is, but cant spell it).

    let me ask you this. would you tell someone, go buy a *enter company name here* *enter bike name here*, just because it looks cool, or has good components? ive looked at Norco's a lot, so im telling people theyre a good bike because i can back that up.

    you always tell people stuff because you can back it up (i hope), so thats all im doing.

    yes im 14, yes im a Norco fan, but i have more expeirence than you think.

    well the P. bikes are very nice. the forks are stiff so you can do the drops (i mean you can hit 10 foot jumps and they dont bottom out, even rough landings) the P. all moutain has 130mm travel, so thats too much. the P. 2 is a great choice
    look at that, i backed up a P. bike!

    It's not about intelligence. It's about your incredible lack of experience.

    One example among many:

    "the forks are stiff so you can do the drops (i mean you can hit 10 foot jumps and they dont bottom out, even rough landings)"

    Add a disclaimer to your posts. You're not helping folks by post bad advice based upon very, very limited experience.
    then why have i seen my friend hit a 10 foot jump and land really badly, and the forks didnt bottom out? yes, i wasnt the one riding, but i still have experience, since i saw it. and dont even bother saying seeing it doesnt count. it does. i experienced the happening of it

    i said its plausible, maybe you should think too. need a definition?

    a rough one is possible but higly unlikely (atleast thats what i was told by a teacher), and it makes perfect sense. ever watch mythbusters?

    pete, if you were nice, we wouldnt have had this arguement. someone has sent me a message notifying me that some of what i was saying wasnt very good, and were very polite (sorry, but unlike you) i may now resign from giving advice here on bike forums, and only take it

    unless of coarse im 90%+ positive that im correct, or should voice my opinion

    that was a mistake, and no disclaimer. i see people make that mistake all the time, they miss something, so this evidence is now...o forget the court term, it just doesnt count.

    i mean, if someone wants help with some simple trials stuff, ill see if i can, depending on what it is. usually its help learning something, so i tell them how i did, if i never learned it, i might suggest a video (not of me, im not like you, im not full of myself)
