I have the older model meta 4x and its the business!

The new one looks even nicer, and if i hadnt just blown all my overdraft on a new 4x bike, I would be thinking about getting one.

I'd offer to buy it, but my Supercross and STP are going for sale. I'd like twins for bikes for once lol

Meta 4x and an Absolut Ti (or not, dunno yet)

They're discontinued are they not ?

No bueno IMO for anything discontinued. Knowing my shops they wouldn't even bother trying to order one.

Think I'm probably going to get a tazer vp and use it as a trail center bike as well as for some of the rougher stuff

Why dosnt anyone use horizontal dropouts with gears? I know itd probably be a pain to align the wheel etc but is there any major drawback? Might get a two6player or something and stick gears on it for 4x

Might as well just buy a phantom for that money, fairly similar and vertical drop outs, just my thoughts though

Yeah that would be the better option. Two6players seem to be much more common on the 2nd hand market though

You can pick a phantom frame up new for £180 ish, that is pretty much a bargin in itself

Meh, suppose so. Would have to deal with mech cable routing on a singlespeed frame as well. Will probably go for a Giant STP though as I'm cheap. Razz
