As the title says really, post your agressive hardtails!

120mm min travel, single or double drivetrains and strictly front suspension only!

Just about scrapes in with the minimum requirements and seeing as it's been Alp'd for the past 3 years, I think hardcore status should be given...

My Evil Sovereign. Slightly different since this photo (taken away the back-plate for the guide once I learned to trust the Works ring), but not by much.

Production Priveé Shan in Gulf 917 colours. Does anyone really care about the specs? Just in case, Revelation 150mm forks, Pacenti TL28 wheels on Tesla hubs. XT groupset. Have since put a KS Lev post on there too. I guess a future upgrade might be one of these trendy thick-thin chainrings and drop the guide.

There's some mighty nice bikes in this thread already. And lots of fun ones.

Classed as cheating? 130mm adjustable travel sits at 100mm double chain setup but rides happy at full travel (130mm travel in this photo)

If I was ever to make a change from my C456, I'll seriously think of a a Privee Shan in this colour - love them - and your is very nice.

My carbon 456 with 150mm revs. Love it but still hanker after a cotic soul or Bfe. Thinking of selling and trying the steel frame.

I feel very underspecced compared to most bikes on here.

Possibly going to change to a Cotic BFe or Stanton Slackline 631 frame with Revelation fork over winter.

Been off the bike 2 months now, Can't wait to ride again!

Keep the AM Hardtail porn coming guys, I wanna see skinny tubes.

I'm very tempted to rebuild this beasty soon(ish), really miss having a stupid big hardtail thing. I only need some forks and drivetrain bits...
