edited March 2010 in MTB buying advice
Has anyone had any experience of these frames as thinking of buying the XC03???? I have heard that these frames are the same as the Brand-x sold by CRC and the Dirty Jo triple butted frames, anyone know if this is the case ????? Cheers for any info...............thought I would chuck in the On-one Inbred into the mix as well..........

    I loves my XC-01, anything in particular I might be able to shed light on regarding the frame quality?

    I think that when we here these stories it is because people just want a cheap frame to jump and thrash - so some inevitably break.

    The GT is a bit burlier and will take a longer fork.
