View Full Version : WTB: Light & fast 29er hardtail, size Medium

I've discovered that the one bike missing from my quiver is a sub 22lb 29er hardtail. :eek: As such, I am trying to find something both race and trail worthy. My first thought is carbon, so I am considering bikes such as the Niner RDO carbon, Cannondale Flash carbon, etc, but also would consider Ti, such as a Lynskey, Form, etc. I'd prefer complete (at least XT or X0), but would consider frame only or frame/fork for the right bike. I like the new tapered steerer tubes, QR15 axles, and 100mm of front travel. I like BB/PF30. Steel is not out of the question, but it's got to be able to build up to my target weight without breaking the bank.

I am 5'10" and fit on most stock "mediums" with an ETT in the 23.5-24" range.
