    The Sette certainly is nice, but way too expensive for an overweight catalog frame.
    sorry for roasting on your ebay carbon, when I past this same time this year on this original frame I bought I will be happy. As for weight yours is more accurate than mine. I was thinking about a ebay carbon, but bought a sette because it looks nice and is half the price of a trek oclu carbon frame. 1500 USD

    I'd buy a Serum frameset if it wasn't so heavy....
    My 17" PHANTOM came in at 2.452 pounds (1112.2 grams)

    awesome! I would make mine lighter, but I ride my components hard, just don't want to be replacing to many things. My rims crossmax st are bulletproof, a little heavy, but will never taco.

    I just picked up a 19" Serum frame and weighed it on my cheap luggage scale and it came in at 2lbs 13oz. I will weigh it again after Xmas on a better scale, I had to put back in the box and hand it over to the wife to put under the tree

    OP I just bought the serum elite from pp and I was wondering how you like it?

    Also, do you find that you get cable rub in any particular areas on the bike?

    Its a great racing frame. The stance is long, it feel's like you are stretched out father, at least farther than my old bike. Its light, and very stiff, the characteristics of carbon. Looks good, but I have been riding some trails the last few days after our 5+ inch of snow here in Gwinnett.

    Cable rub as usual, at the top part, where the cables are, along the side where the hydraulic brake leads, some parts touch the frame. Mostly along the hydraulic line. The steel cables are routed inside of the frame, so no cable rub there. I use "Lizard Skins Clear Frame Patches" everywhere I can. I have 3 on the head, some along the hydraulic line, and a few near the brake cylinder area. With the patches, you can protect your costly investment, at least that is what I hope.

    Quick update and kudos to PricePoint. I managed to pick up a stick and rip the rear derailleur off, nothing damaged but the hanger. Called PP up and they sent me 2 replacements - no charge.

    That's servicing the customer.

    I currently ride a Specialized Rockhopper, weighing in at 25 lbs. The component list is pretty good, generally its all trail/xc spec. Would this frame make sense as an upgrade of sorts? I have a feeling its handling is very xc oriented and I ride pretty much the core definition of "trail riding".

    That is what my old aluminum frame bike with roughly the same components weighed. I think the frame was around 5lbs. The problem with Sette is their resale value, it is absolutely horrible. Since it is not really a name brand, selling a older phantom took forever, and it was 19lbs 26" sold for 1500$. It had less than 100miles on it, in mint condition.

    I would keep your current bike, and get a 29" specialized, santa cruz, or niner carbon frame. I know that they are expensive, but they will keep their value. You then have two to pick from, rather than just upgrading the frame on your current ride.

    Too expensive, I cant afford that. Poor college student here, plus I have the components to build up a fairly nice second hardtail with the speccie frame. I'm kind of thinking of a dual suspension frame too just because I've never tried one but finding good cheap ones is very hard.
