If I was going single pivot (as in no linkage stuff to wear), would be a 5 or new heckler. But then they would cost a fair bit more than your cake!!

IMHO cakes are not ideal for anything. Mine was stolen after i'd had it 18 months, in that time i'd nearly been put off mountain biking completely
It was riding the old clockwork again that put the excitement back into the sport.
I now ride a ti hardtail and its fantastic.
