Session, Podium or Shocker?

One point I forgot to mention, the Shocker (the 2010 and older for sure) do not have an ISCG tab so you are stuck using a BB adapter. I tried mounting a an E Thirteen with Saint cranks and I could not get everything lined up. I ended running Race Face cranks and everything worked out ok.

What about the 951? I know that's a pretty good bike

And you want durability right??? Hahaha not your best option there. I saw last weekend in whistler a 951 with 2 snapped chainstays and he snapped it on "Fade to Black".

Is this a common issue for the 951's?

951's dont have a great rep for lasting very long, I hear they crack alot.

dude its a FRO frame...That stand for for racing only. The bikes desinged to be a 1 or 2 season frame. stick with the podium, session or cove. They are pretty much the nicest frames you can get your hands on that will actully last.

Yes but then again isn't the session a "FRO" frame?

Of the three frames suggested, i'd go for the podium

But another option if you want a super durable frame is the TR450, i've heard they ride really well

well ya thats why the session is so light. I dont know for sure but I do know intense means it when they say FRO so stay away if you vaule keeping your bike in one piece if you ride alot. Like nobble said knolly is looking right to me.

That may be an option, but personally I think the hole where the shock goes through the seat tube is butt ugly, which is why I don't like these or Commencal's (usually)

Just saying thats for sale in cali.

Probably a bit late now to post but I'm really interested in a knolly but my only concern is it's sluggishness through tight sections and ability to jump. Could anyone tell me how bad these problems are or if the bike makes up for it in other ways? Thanks!
