    Lightest FS frame for around 1K

    Hi I was considering the Titus Carbon Rockstar 29 at 6lb, but then I saw the Salsa Spearfish at 5.31lb don't know if that with rear shock.
    Do you guys know of any other Light FS frame.
    Or is the Titus superior to that salsa.
    I just want a FS for comfort around I rode my wife HT and I think a FS would suit me better rocky area.

    Thanks.

    New $1000 FS frames of any weight are pretty rare, do you already have a 29" build kit that you were going to move to this new frame or are you starting from scratch?

    From scratch. I mention around 1k I might be able to go up another 300 but I don't feel like spending 2k on a frame.

    I just saw a fs eBay Chinese for like $750 claim 4.7lbs with shock should be right about 5lb.

    I'm asking in case I miss another manufacturer wights for around 1k

    Buy a complete bike and sell the parts you do not like. May be cheaper in the end than buying a frame. Did this with my Anthem 29.

    FWIW my large Spearfish with RS Monarch was 5.698 lbs. It was far less than 1k. I'd think the prices would be dropping on the 13's soon due to the new frame design coming out.

    I'd say one of the Chinese Carbon fully frames with an RT-3 might come in at that price point or pretty close.
