    Yeah it's light with a bunch of light parts, but what does the frame weigh?

    Oh, 1100g.

    Another frame on the market. Internal cable routing or not, looks good. Frame only option? Price? Less then the eBay unbranded stuff or more? Is this designed at a high level of engineering specificity to frame size, strength to weight specific? Sorry for the geeky questions, just want more info. Thanks.

    Nice spec no doubt. But much more than a no name Carbon from China. (which you can get with internal routing $4k seems a little steep but again it has a lot of the right parts. But I think you could build one yourself for less. Though this is a lot less work. I think it comes down to do you like to tinker or not?

    Oh me lika da tinka lots! Just thinking about an XC race bike on the affordable side. Carbon frame, niner fork, any carbon post, bars, stem. Formula RX, Crest laced to chub/e13 geared. Maybe under 3k with lots of discounts, flea-bay and Craigslist shopping over time. It's going to be this route or a R.I.P. as my next project.

    I am seriously thinking about this bike. wish it was a little cheaper tho.. I was thinking about doing a chinese carbon build but, frame warranty concerns me a bit. Also the price difference wouldn't be that big for a comparably equiped chinese carbon build.. right?

    Anyone know if they're selling the frame separately? I'm currently on an Access XCL 9.7 29er with upgraded parts. The aluminum frame on mine dropped down to below $100 last year. If they drop this carbon frame to a really nice price, I'd switch to it in a heartbeat.

    A warrantied carbon frame at a Chinese carbon price with local support? That would be a no-brainer for me!

    I bought the Stealth 4.0 a few weeks ago online while it was on sale for $1399.
    It's a great frame and overall a pretty good value at that price (with full Deore). I don't really like the red paint scheme but guess it's cheaper to paint most of it rather than have perfect carbon weave over the entire thing.
    A couple of things I wasn't happy with were the stem/handlebar/grips and some minor grips with the gearing. But otherwise no remorse after a few weeks.
    It's a fast cross country rider and I threw some slicks on this and went on a blazing fast road ride too.

    just looked up the spec. isn't the Tora TK a coil spring fork? kind of defeats the purpose of lightweight carbon IMO, but goot price for a carbon bike! do they sell frame only?

    Except for the fact that he bought the whole bike for 1400$, and can sell that tora for 150, buy a Reba for 300 and have a 1550$ Carbon bike with a real fork. Add a set of wheels and he's off to the races!

    stumbled on this- looks like a good deal for a well spec'd CF HT.

    Add a set of wheels, another $500, add a better seat post, pedals, better seat, xtr components all around, and he's at $3000ish. Then add a rock gouge to the carbon frame after he grazes a boulder...carbon for mountain riding...not good.

    Has anyone tried the fork that comes on the access stealth 2.0? I currently use a Rockshox reba xx29 with the lockout and was wondering how the Fox's lockout F29 "fit remote" might compare.
