I've got enough parts in the garage to build up a hardtail and was looking at the Inbred and Skandal 26ers for endurance/XC type riding. I wish the top tubes weren't so short though. The 20" frames I was considering only have 24.1-24.2" effective top tubes. Pretty cramped for an XC/trail bike, seems like it should be in the 24.5-25" range. Maybe it's a carry-over from the days of 120mm+ stems. I think I'd need a setback post and a huge stem to make this work and I'm only 6'2". Too bad because it seems like a great value.
