    Caffeine frame weight ?

    Does anyone know the weight for the Caffeine frame.
    I am looking for a light, quick hardtail to compliment my full sus marathon bike and was thinking the Caffeine + Fatty shok would make a great base for a light build up.

    What is the feedback on the Caffeine in general ?........ideally I would like a Taurine but
    realistically I'm thinking the Caffeine is probably 95% as good for much less money.

    Thanks for any help, and advice.

    Nisbo.

    We should make this link a sticky, or have the file on the site. (although it doesnt list the Caffeine 26 frame weight)

    http://www.cannondale.com/bikes/07/c...ke_weights.pdf

    If the Caffeine 29'er frame is 3.2lb, I would guess that the Caffeine frame is 3lb or less which is pretty light.
    I would have a hard time justifying a Taurine when a Scalpel comes in at less than a 2lb difference at the same price, and the new Scalpel is supposed to be a 1/2lb lighter again.
