    To me there is a clear differece in the quality of the front and rear triangles. The front is obviously very impressive. The rear doesn't have offset chainstays, the welds are OK (welding Al is difficult), the machining/manipulation of the yokes and dropouts aren't really special, the rear pivot area looks huge. I think that is why the weight is not lower, plus it really looks beefy - looks like a 5-spot. So, the fact it weighs at least 1lb less than that is impressive.

    Thanks for all your compliments!

    On the weight issue:

    1. The weight is including: integrated headset cups, seatclamp, shock ect. The weight of the bare frame without shock is claimed to be 2250g, and by my calculations is a real 2250-2280g depending on the weight of the headset cups.

    2. This is not meant to be a superlight frame, the headtube, toptube and downtube is huge. And the frame itself is, like Anders said, tested to be one of the stiffest frames availiable.

    I have not planned to build it superlight, but hope to break the 10000g line, with the help of other german carbon parts

    I agree that the rear triangle could be nicer, specially a disc only version would be good.

    Regards

    I question the durability of a Carbon frame for mtb use, but that thing sure is pretty.
