    thank you =)
    the "problem" of this frame is the limit of weight for athlete that is of 75kg... my brother is 67kg, and I'm 88...so I can't use this bike...

    The Nitrous is a pure race machine. Hope your brother enjoys it.
    Nothing to see here.

    Mavic EN321's are too heavy for this set-up. Use xc-717's or so; much lighter and also very reilable. Some lighter weight 2.2 tires should be enough for such a light-weight person.
