In a moment of madness and against my better judgement I nearly sold this. Happily I saw the light and hope to hit the trails with it as often as family life and work committments allow. I've been out a couple of times since buying the frame and its completely different to an alloy frame. You don't appreciate how stiff a carbon frame is until you try it! Anyhow, here she is...

Brakes: Hope MONO MINI Pro with alligator aeries 160mm discs
Bars: KCNC SC Bone flat bar
Bar Ends: KCNC
Stem: KCNC SC Wing
Headset: Focus
Seat Post: Exotic carbon
Saddle: SDG Ti Fly
Front Shifter: SRAM XO trigger shifter
Rear Shifter: SRAM XO Gripshift
Front Mech: Shimano XT
Rear Mech: SRAM XO
Chainset: Race Face Next Carbon double conversion with TA Specialties rings - 40t/26t
Bm Brkt: Hope Stainless steel
Chain: KMC Superlight 9Spd
Pedals: Crank Bros. Eggbeater SL with titanium spindles

+ Focus Seatclamp, KCNC and carbon headset spacers, Jagwire cables, Titec foam grips.
It comes in at 19.8lbs - lovely.
Society is like a stew. You have to stir things up now and again otherwise the scum will rise to the top.
