    Kinesis Frame Decission

    So, some time in the not so distant future I'm looking at buying a new frame. I tend to ride fairly aggressive XC, for anyone who knows it the harshest route I push at the moment is the Follow The Dog Route at Cannock Chase. The frame that has taken my fancy is a Kinesis XC Pro 3 with carbon seat stays (Products | Maxlight | Xc Pro 3 | Kinesis Bikes UK) however I was unsure of how well these stays will handle any punishment? I'm fairly new to the whole carbon on MTB's so any help would be appreciated.

    If anyone has any ideas for other potential frames, I'm looking for something fairly light, in the 350-450 price range and that comes in white (personal preference)

    Four hundred ponds is a big chunk of change to spend on a frame. Why not go "all in" with titanium:

    Titanium is a nice idea but for my level of riding maybe a bit over the top. At the moment I can't really afford much more than 400 and reckon I could get a lot more frame for my money by sticking with aluminium.
