    So I made a bit of a left turn and ended up getting the Santa Cruz Superlight 29 R XC. My brother-in-law has one and I took it for a spin on his street and fell in love immediately. I love the low stand over position, the elevated chain stays, and it looks darn cool. Found a great deal on it so I didn't go too far over budget.

    Otherwise it 'looks' really nice. Happy to see the tapered head tube and 20mm front axle. http://www.bikesdirect.com/products/...mano20_600.jpg


    Contact them, they are real fast at getting back with emails!!! Seem like good folks, interesting business model. Most frames are made in Tawain or china with about a handful of mfg plants. I would GUESS motobecane basically spec orders their frames, then put stickers, then put components. Seems like they are about similar quality at about 15-20% less.

    bikenerds has some sick closeouts too. Big fan of the closeout stuff!
