    Sette Razzo 29er

    I am coming from cyclocross, which I know a lot about (frame geo, groupsets, brakes etc.). But don't have a clue what to look for in a XC 29er.

    I am 6'-4" with a 35" inseam. I ride a road and CX bike with a 60cm top tube and 110mm stem.

    What do you think of the Sette Razzo frame. It has a 22" frame:

    Too steep of a head tube angle at 71.5 and designed for too short an amount of travel 80-100mm.
    Ride some Treks and Scott Scale models for a more slack HT angle at 69, and little shorter chainstay.
    Ride a Giant XTC to see if you like the steeper HT angle.
    Look at the numbers of a YelliScreamy to see even slacker and shorter.

    That Yelli Screamy looks sweet: Yelli Screamy - the 29er that handles like a 26" mountain bike frame

    The XL has a 641mm Top Tube Length (Effective) - which is good for my 6'-4" height and ape-like arms. Thanks for the tip.

    I just wish the frame cost was less than $650. Any knock-off frames with similar geometry that I could use to get my feet wet?

    It's sweet but I used it as an example of the "more" that is out there in hard tails beyond just a XC build. More of a one bike for all focus. You may not have a lot of heavy trail mileage but you're a solid rider already putting in riding time. So I would jump in a little deeper and save the time and money there is probably no need to expend on entry level stuff-- stuff that just makes the final choices actually cost you more.
    Another frame that is Yelli like in titanium is the Titus Fireline. Talk to Mike at Planet X about it.
