 We had a guy show up on a rigid singles speed to this weekend's enduro/xc race thing (2/3 down- 1/3 up/flat pedal) and wipe out the field. Something like 10th out of 155 total riders. Granted the trails were relatively smooth, but still, and absolute monster performance/troll.

 There are not numbers enough for me to adequatly prop this rigid hooligan. I have just recently bought a Kona Honzo trying to smash the trails in the same manner as my suspended hardtail - this is a completely different ballgame! This exemplifies the massive work of the front suspension in relation to the rear suspension. Massive kudos to the rigid ripper...either you are a ripper or you get caught by the reaper

 My own bike is a mullet hardtail with a 130mm fork/ 29er on the front. Fork is at zero sag, really like it. Stable geometry and just enough give in the front end, much better than a longer fork and smaller wheel. And yes I ride some gnarley stuff on it.
But @tamarin08 is on a whole other level!! Huge respect not just for riding the thing and doing so well but for approaching things differently and getting results. Nice one lad tup

 Given that the two (ahem) gentlemen who set up Sick have long since abandoned it and it's been delisted as a company it's safe for the few who actually got one to show them out in the open.

 Love how the UK really embraces the Hardtail in it's pure 'fun' form and what it can do. Until recently, the hardtail on 'this side of the pond' has been relegated to cheap 'first bikes' or hardcore XC crowd. These are some nice rigs indeed.

 @kcy4130: They let the company go bankrupt and ran away with their tails between their legs. Unless someone can dig out evidence that they never intended to deliver product (as opposed to being clueless, arrogant, incompetent and unable to deliver product), it's very unlikely anything criminal will come out of it. Likewise it would be difficult to sue them since Sick Bikes no longer exists as a company.
.
Planet X bought the production run of frames Sick left unpaid for in Taiwan and sell them as the Hello Dave and Tik Tik. According to Planet X they introduced Sick to the guys in Taiwan who make the On One steel frames, so they bought the frames since they knew they would be solid. Sick leaving Marino high and dry was a whole other drama those idiots kicked off.

800 pounds is a lot for that frame. That being said it's probable they pumped up the frame price to sell more completes. 1700 pounds seems okay for the GX model.

 I ordered a Moxie from the Pipedream website. Alan is great to deal with, and very helpful. The Gen2/3 is a serious machine. If you are into the Enduro Hardtail thing, then you can't go wrong. I personally now ride the Gen1 Moxie, as I felt more comfortable on it and it felt more balanced. But either way, you can't go wrong. Steel is a great hardtail material too, I ride with 2.3 tires and it is surprisingly smooth even on rocky terrain.
  • 2 0
 There is always a way to get a UK frame here, it just comes down to economics. Occasionally I do see Pipe Dreams on the PB buy and sell too. Additionally, you would probably prefer a steel frame (such as a Moxie or other option) than the other frames you listed. This is certainly open to debate, but those folks that have had steel frames can provide more insight than someone touting the weight savings of alloy. Lots of options available in North America, time to dig in and nerd out before pulling your hardtail trigger. And yes, hardtails are a rad edition if you already have a nice FS.

 The fork offset on that stooge looks huuuge. weird choice.
  • 2 0
 80mm offset. Paired with the actual HA of 66 degrees it gives an effective HA of 63.5 degrees. 2 forks in 1. Fast/crisp handling of the 66 and monster truck confidence of the 63.5. Great choice - I love it!
  • 2 0
 @tamarin08: Slack head angle has 2 positives effects :
- Longer front-center/wheelbase which reduce otb and gives the bike better overall ability to clear obstacle with less speed loss. On this particular point more offset effectively gives you a touch more of that effect.
- More trail which result in more cornering stability/more self centering forces/less "twitchy" feeling. On this regard adding offset will reduce trail which will make the bike more twitchy, in effect it has the centering forces of a bike with around 69° HA.
Personally i think winning front center VIA offset is not so good, if i wanted 63HA i would have gone 63 with standard offset.
  • 3 0
 @Ajaj191: good to know. I've ridden a number slack bikes also read about 'trail' quite a bit and understand what the numbers should mean. However, for some reason, the Mk4's trail numbers don't add up to the way it handles in reality. This is why it's so important to demo bikes before you buys them. Pretty sure the fork rake wasn't an after thought to create a longer front center - frame and fork were designed as one. Gotta also consider the angle at which the rider/bike mass is being pushed through that front axle.
  • 2 0
 @Ajaj191: the offset on this was designed for 2 purposes, to reduce wheel flop and to speed up the steering. On a rigid bike it makes sense for the front of the bike to be as agile as possible so you can change lines in an instant. It wasn't about gaining a longer front end. Despite popular belief and what most marketing managers will tell you, this geometry isn't twitchy in the slightest. The lack of wheel flop makes a huge difference, as does the fact the geometry never alters through sag. But this is a rigid bike in a field full of long travel hardtails, so it needs magic tricks and a damn good rider, which it has. The fact that @tamarin08 finished 2nd speaks volumes for his skills.

 They are all using different mudguards, but I think that’s the Crud mudguard or the Mudhugger

 actually something (or all) on that stooge looks so right, that all other bikes looked like they missed the point (i say this owning a (brilliant) moxie)

 The point I was making was about the last bike. The Storck. Enduro race, in the mud, on a full xc build with xc tires. To each their own I guess. @optimumnotmaximum:

 @Deadclmbr: I broke my trail bike the day before an enduro, so I pulled out the rigid, Walmart level, 26" bike that I converted SS just to go and have fun on. It was absolutely miserable. But less miserable than staying at home.

 Thanks for some perspective. Pinkbike and Strava have made me a snob. I’m ashamed. I’ve ridden literally every piece of machinery at my work that has wheels just for fun. That’s all it is about. I hope the dude on the Storck had a blast. @JSTootell:
