    Anybody own a Carver Ti O'Beast?

    I am considering upgrading to a Ti frame. I have not found many comments on MTBR about the Carver Ti O'Beast. Anybody have one and care to comment.
    Thanks.

    Guilty ! Great bike, no regrets or issues. It has done everything i wanted from it, geometry feels great for dirt. I have been running Buds on Margelites full time since getting them so no clearance issues with 4.8" tyres either end. Been riding this now for well over a year
    Medium frame weighed in at 1710g if i remember correctly.

    If you click on the bike name in my signature below it will take you to the original thread, i dont run 47mm rims anymore or even 4" tyres, once you go 4.8's you cant go back.

    Here's a couple more.

    Hi, can any of you guys measure the lower chain stay clearance or has any of you tried to use BFLs on clown shoes? I plan to get an o'beast but just wondering if my existing rims and tires fit.
