Ok then, i've decided to get a new frame soon and im torn between these two frames:

1. A1 Adamant

2. Echo HiFi

So which one is it to be and why?

Can people post some of there fully built Hifi's because I havent seen many and like the frame and want to see it built. B)

thanks

thats my hi fi

I had it a month, I just hated it. my friend has it now and everytime I go on it I jut cringe at how nasty it is.

I cant imagian the A1 being nicer, infact I recken it will be worse due to the shorter rear end.

even if you try a high bbe bike, you might like it, but its after a couple of weeks time that you begin to dislike it.

I really reccomend either an ashton justice, echo control, onza limey, they are all really nice frames.

hey again ali, seem to be following you at the moment. lots of posts after urs or vice versa.

anyway. I LOVE MY ADAMANT, its great, really enjoy riding it, and i have never had more fun. My toxsin was good, it was a great bike, but mainly for taps, which i like, but not as much as hooks and sidehops. Also in my opinion is much better for natural.

Both of ali's above comments are opinions, and i know i disagree. Ali is an awesome rider, and knows what he is talking about with regard to GEO and bikes in general, however i think its each to their own on this.

I LIKE HIGH BB RISE, its good. better for the things i like doing. but, if you like tapping then dont go there. its not a bike for taps. im just starting to get there, but is difficult. also dont go with such a high rise stem, i have the low HIFI stem on my bike and its LUSH

Ive decided to not go for a high rise bb, so i'll probaly get a Echo Control, i dont want to make myself get any worse by trying to get used to a high rise bb. Mabey when i go for a ride with someone who has a high rise i'll try it out and see, but untill then i'll stick with the normal bb. Plus i've heard that alot of people that have gone for a high bb have switched back pretty quickly.

I feel guilty now :$

I never managed to get the hang of taps on my hifi, but sidehops, pigeons (wheelswaps) and hooks were all nicer.

The main thing for me was just the feel, it wasnt "fun" to ride, too twitchy. With normal frames I feel you can spice things up easier, things like backwards manuals, spinny stuff etc. I just felt that things like that were not as suitable on that frame.

If you like to just do standard moves, then high bbs can be nice, but they just arnt for me.

I might try a high bb now (i know i change my mind alot) but I'll have alot of time to get used to it because I wont change my frame when I get it for a while, so i should be able to learn taps with it. Whats the problem people are having with taps on these high rise bb's then? Is it just the feel of them or is it something different?

p.s. I think i'll go for the HiFi because I love them holes at the head-tube

please don't get a frame based on looks because at the end of the day it's how it rides thats more important. You'll look much better being a good rider. I suggest trying high bb frames before buying but if you genuinely think that it'll suit your riding than go for it, it does look pretty damn good ;)

HIFI, i really am starting to love mine it just seems to get better the more i ride it i think once your used to it (this may take more than a week or two as it is a big change in riding style) you will like it you just have to give these high bb frames a chance.

i think the reason there have been so many people not liking the hifi is because they simply havent gave the hifi long enough.

hey guys,

i agree with ben, give it a longer chance, the ride style is very different. You will need to give it a chance. Anyway no pics of adamants in this thread so thought i would add one here

i always tend to go off chrome frames, such as the hi-fi, i am bored of silver but anyway, heres a black een

christ the more i see the adamant the more i love that sexy beast. the only thing i would say is id like to see it in sliver, only in black is depressing. if they started selling em in silver it would help people like me cos im shit and i scratch the f**k out of my frames, actually my cranks take the most hammer but it would annoy me getting scratches on a black frame.

By the way what forks you got on there Ben@hulltrials?
