Hey guys

My choices so far are - Litespeed Ocoee, Curtis XC 853, Cotic Soul or Soda, On-one ti 456......are there any more I should consider? I'm trying to stick with a 80/100mm fork set up.

I'm quite a powerful rider that weights in at 15 stone, 6' 5" and I ride XC. Would titanium or steel be best for me?

    Titanium would be better if you could afford it, but don't get a Ti456, get a Tinbred instead.

    I'd look at the cotic personally, really nice bike.

    Blundell has that Litespeed and it looks the nuts!

    Litespeed is my first choice at the moment (great looking frames). Although after seeing this from a danish forum....


    .....has put doubts in my mind! I can't read danish so I haven't a clue how it happened. Some sort of front impact I'm guessing...... though i don't know how the carbon crown survived!

    that has to have been ridden into some immovable object at high speed with enough weight on the bars to stop the wheel rolling over. i wouldn't worry about the frame.
