I would prefer aluminium or Ti, as i will be looking for 2nd hand and i just cant trust carbon 2nd hand.
Price range less than £1000 for the frame new.
I am looking for something racey and not too odd ball. Its not a project bike to look cool, its a race bike.
What is a lightweight 29er frame weigh? I guess titanium would be a good comparison.
I am looking for recomendations on manufacturers that do a particularly light race frame. I have a two 26" race frames, Kona Kula scandium frame which is about 1300g and a stumpjumber which is about 1450g. Both a similar market price, both 19", quite different weights.
In terms of geometries, i dont tend to go mad on the research into this as it gets way to confusing and time consuming. I have had so many 26" frames in the last four years I dont expect to get it right first time with a 29er.
What I tend to find something that fits the bill in terms of price weight, materials etc, then compare the geomtry to other frames, checking fork compatability and head angle as priority. And also just checking that it hasnt got some weird guinea-pig geometry and that it generally has good reviews in terms of teh handling i am looking for
The main want, in terms of geometry is a short top tube, (or effectively the bb to front axle distance), as i have a short upper body and long legs.
Anyone had experience of the 0n-one 29ers?
The air 9 looks good. Has anyone tried the on-one scandel? the geometry is very similar to the air 9, slightly longer chainstay length.
Also, any recommendations on a particular Chinese frame? Ive looked at a few on ebay and they seem to have crazy geometries that aren't explained well
