    Just taking a poll to work out some geometry and size issues..

    Whats the best hardtail frame that you have ever ridden?
    -What size? Sloping top tube?
    - Frame material?
    - Your height? Your inseam?
    - Any special features of the frame?
    - Front suspension? Rigid fork?

    With that, you don't even need a saddle. You can sit confortably on it.
    With the proper stimulation, you won't even need a seatpost. Imagine
    all the weight that you can save.
