I am finally getting around to picking up a FS rig. I currently ride an Access XCL frame and am going to transfer most of the components on to the new rig. My budget for frame and shock is around 700. I consider myself an aggressive XC rider and have the intention of getting back into racing later this fall. I am also 6' 1" and weigh 185lbs. Also I need to stick with a 26" wheeled frame
Currently I am considering the Large Sette Ace with Monarch 3.3 from Price point (479), Large '08 Titus RX-1 with manitou Radium (699), and also a 19" Kona Four Deluxe with a RS Ario 2.2 (640).
All of these frames are one form of a 4 bar link from what I can tell. I have heard that the Sette and Kona might experience some brake jack given the pivot point located on the seat stay, is this true? I am open to suggestions if anyone has some better deals to point out. Thanks
