    Cool-blue Rhythm XC race steel hardtail 26er frame?

    I broke my old XC race steel HT frame while ascending a gentle hill with my dog running by. C'est la vie.

    I like to "race" XC events on a steel 26er hardtail. I'm a wee bit curious about a 26er carbon hardtail, but seems like that's paying a lot of money to finish mid-pack. Maybe the carbon ride is that much enjoyable over a crmo frame?

    please recommend a "light" XC race steel HT frame for under $1500?
    Not all-mountain. Not FR. Racing for the intrinsic joy of it: Could careless about trophies, but will accept cash prizes or useful swag...if)

    Just for XC race, for example:
    Downieville XC
    Leadville 100 miles
    Nappa Valley Dirt Classic
    Annadale 31 miles
    ...etc...
    The state that separates its scholars from its warriors will have its thinking done by cowards & its fighting by fools.
