    Goblin frame for clydes

    Hello is the goblin frame strong and rigid enough for clydes. I have a GT currently and would like to build a new bike for XC use. The price of the frame only makes it very attractive. But a lot of frames are to weak in the seat stays.

    I just got a Seeker last week (Goblin frame, cheaper components), and when I told Jeremy my weight, he didn't skip a beat. The bike feels stiff under my weight and I get significantly less wrap up in fast sharp turns than I get with my older Aluminum frame or my steel road bike.

    My race weight is 235lbs.
