I know this isn't new to MTBR forums, but I hadn't heard of it (and many of the reviews are recent). So as not to hijack my other (slack head tube angle - Yelli thread) I am moving this here:

Airborne Bicycles. Guardian
I will likely throw on a Velocity A23/ SRAM X-9 wheelset and a 2004 Marzocchi Bomber 29er Fork (100mm travel) that I already have.
