It's a new year, and that means that it's time to choose a new BIKE for next season... I need help choosing though.
I'll tell you my problem. I am too slow to get the new Superfly... if that was an option I would be posting (boasting) about my next bike instead of agonizing over which frame to pick.
Since choosing the Superfly is out of the question, I have to pick between this:
Of course, you have to keep in mind that the pictures are only for you to see the FRAME. The bike I get will be painted differently and have completely different parts.
I had the 29er hardtail last year and it served me very well, so I wouldn't mind having another one of those, but the new HiFi XC looks pretty neat too.
The 29er I had last year was built up at 22.5 lbs and the new frame is .5 lbs lighter so that would be pretty sweet to race. The new frame is also stiffer in the BB and is supposed to handle better.
The HiFi XC frame weighs 2350 gr. with shock and hardware, close to a pound more than the 29er HT... but wheels will be lighter, and tires too and it's full suspension.
Anyway, you can check out the HiFi XC here:
