I'm in search for a reasonably light hardtail XC bike (preferably sub 10 kg w/o pedals). The requirements are: a stiff frame (aluminium or carbon) with racing geometry (not for racing purposes though), XT gruppo or equivalent. As my budget is somewhat limited :roll: (2500-3300 euros) and still want it fairly light, I'd prefer V-brakes. Weighing some 65 kg (height 183 cm), I expect no problems with flexible xc forks. Obviously enough, I've gone through the model lines from the mainstream manufacturers and some less known ones (like Simplon and Scapin). Personally, I find Koga's bikes are quite appealing (don't know the weights of complete bikes). Any suggestions?

Nice one. The best set of components I've seen in the price category. Goes to the top placings on my list.

Thanks for the tip. Have to start seeking some reviews on the bike.
