Decent spec for an all-rounder. You certainly make the most of it by the sounds of it. Nice touch with the seat post too.

Bad-ass AM hardtail right here. Aggressive set-up handles everything from hardcore Bulgarian DH courses through to gentle bimbles round local trails. Might change to lighter tube up front and swap the DHR minion on the rear for a ignitor with harder rubber to make the ups a little easier. Hardtails are a bit harsh when the ground gets rough but affordable and super low maintainance. Picked the frame up on ebay for around £40. Low standover height along with low front end and short stem makes it useful on the jumps and a true all-rounder. I'll give it an 8 since the wheels don't match.
