    Is a NOS Giant MCM carbon frame a bad idea?

    xp from wbtb....


    Looking for a lightweight carbon ht, and the Giant MCM comes to mind; easily found on eBay. Should I stay away, and is there a better alternative that weighs about the same and is a good price with a good rep in terms of durability? I'm a cheap bastard and see no sense in buying a new Scott hardtail when a Giant MCM gets the job done.

    are you a lightweight? I am a bigger guy (186 at the time) and was on a team that rode these a few years ago. The only guy that didn't break his frame was 130lbs and we were riding in the midwest. I would look at the new xtc carbon it is a lot stronger.
