    Though not a World Cup, but this is the general look/geometry of an XtC frame with the skinny 80mm SID. Yes, it is a bit "flexy" but would work just fine on most single track in my area. The SID is light but sad to say that it only has a few more days on this frame before it gets replaced by an F100. Just waiting everyday by the window for the local FedEx guy to stop by my house.

    Yeah they normally sell for $1000 Aussie dollars.

    $750 Canadian is $836 Aussie, you're getting just over 15% discount of rrp which seems a pretty reasonable deal to me.

    Google '750 CAD in USD' or use xe.com. Google says CAD750 is USD699.95.

    This is my 2005 Rainier built from the frame up!

    My build is all parts from ebay some new and some used. The only part I did not install is the headset as the frame I bought all ready had one pressed in. Everything else was done by me with only a few minor problems, a few scraped and bloody knucles, a bunch of cursing and a few tense moments with the spouse when she tried to help.

    Frame- Giant Rainier
    Headset- Aheadset
    Fork- Maniotu Black w/adjustable travel 80-100 (not sure what year)
    Stem- Bontrager
    Handlebar- Bontrager Crowbar
    Crankset- Truvativ Blaze
    Front Der.- SRAM Gen X
    Rear Der.- SRAM X7
    Shifters- SRAM X7 Triggers 8 speed
    Wheelset- Sun Rhyno Lite w/ XT hubs
    Cassette- SRAM PG850 11-32
    Chain- SRAM PC58
    Rear Brake- Gator Mechanical (so far works great with no problems)
    Front Brake- Gator Mechanical
    Brake Levers- Avid Speed Dial 5

    its a large frame @ 21. last i weighed it was still @ 23lbs with the big culprit being the wheelsets and tires. had the hydro cables cut yesterday (around 20 grams or more saved) and got some Alligator Serrated rotors (less 40 grams from the original Avid wavy pair).





    will have the carbon steerer tube cut to about 8 1/2 inches soon to shred off at least 15-20 grams more.

    probably build the Am Classic-X317-Revos (should hit 1400++ grams) wheelsets this weekend and see if i can hit the 22 mark (i know,its a long shot)

    Oh the SID, hmmm being a 170lbs rider thats wimpy on technical DH sections,it seems fine.havent noticed the infamous "Flex" on the SID.i guess im not riding hard like before. but i have to admit, i really miss my old Reba which can be banged around without any worries and i miss the floodgate so much.

    This is my 06 Giant Yukon, was a 24 speed but upgraded to 27.

    Upgrades:

    -Rockshox Tora 318 Solo Air w/motion control,
    -Deore fd,
    -SRAM pg9770 cassette,
    -Shimano HG73 chain,
    -Truvativ Firex LR cranks and GXP bb,
    -FSA Pig headset,
    -Crappy Kalloy stem (but so much lighter than stock stem),
    -Easton setpost and WTB saddle- currently fitted with Geax slicks.

    As of tomorrow I am upgrading to a Jamis fs, but this bike has been great.
