GW - Come to Aberystwyth, I'll show you how a stiffee's supposed to be ridden (ooerr )
Aluminium hardtails - still relevant?
is this jey?
I have an AL-alloy Whyte 19 and an S-Works M5 hardtail, both absolutely sensational in the their own special ways.
Can't see the point of having a carbon frame if it's going to get bashed about on a regular basis.
I'd dearly like something in Ti though... one day!
This looks like the least jey Al frame i've seen in a while
my back aches just looking at it.
ide go with a Maxlite 120 i think personally.
Or a stiffee FR (neowm)
in the real world, off STW, youll probably find they are quite common, its just people around here these parts arnt happy if its not either "real steel springyness" (read: old hat) or worth a small fortune ti/carbon/bamboo/jelly composite.
Best value, tough as tits, get Alu (IM personal O)
I got a maxlite, I like it
Just built another XTC and love it. Ti is great but outlives my ownership span, carbons ok but I mince more on carbon.
