    Hi Frank

    That was fun to see your post in here

    As requested, here are some pics of my Carbon Rush. There are some minor diff compared to the TransAlp set-up. The KMC chain on the pictures was changed to an XT and the back gear cable was also changed from I-link to XT.

    Any comments?

    I am still interested in upgrade suggestions that will not compromise strength.

    Have anybody tried the Hope Mono Mini Pro?
    And, can the weight (295g) be confirmed ?
