    FTM for XC

    Is anyone riding/racing a FTM for XC racing? I know it is a solid all arounder, just looking for some feedback from those that have had some success with it.

    I've raced my FTM Carbon in XC and Endurance events. As far as success goes, I rode it in a 3rd place team effort at a 12hr event, a couple top 10s in sport class XC races.

    Carbon FTM frame is almost identical weight to the carbon X so you can build one up very light and it also has the most XC like geometry out of the 140(ish)mm bikes out there (steepr headtube) so you should be good to go if you need the extra travel.

    Thanks for the feedback! I did notice the geometry and was surprised how close it was...
