If your ars* gets used to it then great, but seriously, dont shave a few grams for the sake of a shoot painful seat!

When are you fitting the gun turrets btw? ;)

It's on the classifieds now would prefer a px for a nice carbon ht would have to be a decent one.
Had sum offers on frame so may just let the frame go.

Carbon XTC composite frame from a few years back would be nice. Around 1200g. Like this one viewtopic.php?f=10017&t=12811860&p=17312331&hilit=Xtc#p17312331

Really stunning IMO. Not as keen on the newer ones.

I'd rather just have a Lurcher or whatever the O-O 29er frame is called, or just something like this.

I quite like the Lurcher too. Though it's not actually that light.
The Race 29er and the Planet X Dirty Harry are lighter though perhaps less versatile than the Lurcher.

Ah yes, it was the Race 29er I was thinking of.

That said, of all of them I'd rather have a Superfly SL, looks awesome.

Not to sure about the 29ers at the mo.
Was out on a ride on Sunday with a few lads who are riding 29ers bit of mixed reviews by them. Although these were budget type.

Would suggest it'd be ideal for your riding.

If its 29 then you need one of these

Id prefer it if you got the rdo full suss. But the hardtail will do ;). Basically im never ever going to be able to afford one of these and so the best i can hope for is to make others buy one and i can just perve over them!

Agreed, a set of SID World Cups would finish it off a treat! Think they worked out it was a whisker over £10k worth!
