- Which steel xc hardtail for racing?
A Soul would be pretty good in my opinion if you definitely want steel. Only the Scapin would be lighter out of the frames mentioned, and with 100mm forks it's ace racey geometry (same as the Soda Kate Potter races at World Cups and the World Champs). Despite what's claimed about steel frame weights, we've measured a few and nothing comes within 1/3lb of a Soul apart from a Rock Lobster, and the RL has some 'interesting' handling characteristics if the last one I tried is anything to go by.Posted 8 years ago
