I know y'all hate em, but i dont really care :P
Looking for a lighter duty FR / All-Mountain bike, hit washington/whistler a few times a year, the rest is your usual, try not to hit anything much higher than 8-10 feet, usually. A little dirtjumping is always good, but once again, nothing too crazy.
I'm a pretty big guy - 6'4, so i do like the feel of a bigger bike - i'm currently riding a Medium '01 VPS drop with super t's, and it suprisingly fits me decently, albeit a tad small, but i cope fine.
I'm looking to spend around $2k, so i'm looking at things like the '07 Six-2, etc.
I also have a line on konas, banshees and scotts at cost +10 ish, which is always good.
I have the dealer looking into a 05-06 chap for me, in my size if its out there, which i'd be able to equip for around 2k, other than that, i've got no clue what to look for.
Whats the word? Preston FR, etc?
