    Lightest DJ/Urban Frame

    Hey im new and i was just wondering what the lightest DJ/Urben frame is?
    I am looking at building up a new rig, im thinking..
    Chase 1
    Pike 454
    Mavic 721s or WTB laser disc
    Deity bars, stem, crank and seat
    Avid juicy brakes
    Sram 9 speed drive

    What im looking for is a very light flickable combo thats good for everything, and i dont want to go SS because i do alot of 4X, trails, but also urban and Dj

    What do u guys think, I want to hear what you guys would do if u were me,
    Thanks for your help
    Mike

    It really depends on how hard you want to ride. Sure, there is some light frames, but are they strong? I personally wouldnt go back to aluminum for urban/dj. But since your going to do alot of different riding, and you want it light, I guess it should be aluminum. So check out Addict Cycles. Thats what I would get.(if aluminum)

    there are a lot of high end steal frames that are just as light as the aluminum ones. one very light, but aluminum frame i know of is the Staats MTX...it's rated at 3 lbs 15.9 oz. that's probably as light as you're going to get without giving up strength. you can get them at www.go-ride.com

    If you want light, Deity stuff isn't what you want.

    for dj and urban the lightest you could probably go would have to be one of those carbon Ibis'....i think they'd suit all your needs well.

    stp is awesome and light

    buy SIC much better product then diety. and everything is designed right up in maryland. amazing amazing stuff. they got camodized too. if you wanna be all racialist and demand white or grey though, nothing a good can of krylon cant fix.

    The 10-74!
    Just what I was going to say. I wanted my next DJ frame to be steel, but I think rick has got me hooked . . .
    I'm out of things to say . . .
