I love those Coyote HT frames - hugely underated and were a bargain.

I had a HT3 (horribly orangie colour) a few years ago, it was brilliant little hardtail.

I bought it with tatty paint for £20 after seeing it hung in a friends garage. It is really nice to ride, Ive never had a full sus bike so I dont really know what im missing but i cant see them being anywhere near as rideable as a lightweight hardtail.

Heres a few more pictures

Good looking frame, scrubbed up well. Nice mixture of functional parts. A proper XC rig :wink:
