The 650B Superlight is even nicer :-P

I agree

Eric is working on a quote for my wheels right now.

What do you recommend for hubs: Chris King ISO or Hope Pro II?

I think I'm going to try the cheap chinese rims first.
www.light-bicycle.com/wider-carbon-mount...less-compatible.html
As light as Crests and slighter wider than Flows (23mm internal).
Plus there is a lot of good feedback from actually test rides, stiffer than alloy. Here is the link to the MTBR thread, beware it is long but it does give alot of info, cross sections, pics and so on: forums.mtbr.com/29er-bikes/cheap-chinese...bon-rims-673410.html

Can use coupon code UK25BITS to get $102.99 ($376.57 shipped) off a scandal, and others.

Yep, I looked at those too. I don't like the geo numbers. The Highball has the exact numbers I'm looking for.

Could get a carbon on-one lurcher for the same price or a scandal for $250 less.

Our insurance company has "strongly suggested" that we tell you that Mountain Biking can be dangerous. If you're visiting this site it's very likely that you're already aware that if you insist on having a good time by riding your mountain bike, eventually you will almost certainly fall down and collect any number of boo-boos, dings and injuries, serious or otherwise, but we have to tell you anyway.

Mountain Biking is a potentially hazardous activity carrying a significant risk of bodily injury and even death. Mountain biking should only be undertaken if you have a complete awareness of these risks. You can reduce the level of risk by wearing a helmet and by riding within your own skill level.
