i give up. i'm resigned to starting my weight weenieness over with a new platform to build on. to that end, i have the option of going with any frameset so what's lightweight out there that doesn't need to be ridden like a ballerina? i could transfer my xt m775 3x9 drivetrain and xt m785 brakes or not. wheels are a 26" set of dt to dt coming in at 1560g so i'm thinking they're fine if i stay with that wheel size. if i do change, i'll probably stick with 26 or maybe 650b, but not interested in a fs niner.
also, i've got 100mm of travel now. i'd want to move up to 140-ish travel.
Making that jump from the 100-120mm travel range to 140mm travel makes it much harder to keep it weight weenie.

Re: frame recommendation?
Yeti asr5c is a 4.75 lb 26er with 140mm travel rear. Definitely doesn't need to be ridden like a ballerina either.
