- Lightest HT frame for xc racing?
Dirty Harry is great, but I am sure it’s a rebranded Chinese frame. Lots of choice from the Chinese direct sellers, or go for a 2nd hand Scott Scale if you can find one.
The frame is not where most of the weight is – if you start stalking the classifieds now though you’ll be able to build a 9kg hardtail for £1-1.5k with some nice bits on.Posted 3 years ago
Next year I’ll be looking at doing quite a lot of xc stuff so looking now to start building up a nice light hard tail to throw around,I’m a bit in the dark as regards to Hardtails these days and there seems to be a good choice.Posted 3 years ago
Probably only looking for a 100 mm travel on the front,any recommendations apreciated.
Are you race weight and race fit – to the point of podiums in reach? If not buy a decent frame that’s not stupidly expensive and concentrate on improving yourself first, you’ll get much more out of that than wacking £1000’s on a bling frame for the sake of 100gms first time up.Posted 3 years ago
Don’t know iff to go 650b or not,I was thinking 26″.Posted 3 years ago
Thanks for the advice kryton,I haven’t got loads to spend really so would like to get it right first time,although with my past ventures I’ve always ended up with a totally different bike to what I thought I would end up with.
