its hard to get lefty hubs where i am and imposible to get someone to build one so thats out of the question
Then import import some from the US!

Do a search for custom wheel, I'm sure you will find someone willing to build you a nice set...

I personally would get the Rush 800, it is probably worth the extra money and in the long run will save you alot.

Edit: Looking at the 800 and the 600 specs, the main difference is the 'upgraded' LX drivetrain on the 800, the crankset, the rear shock with rebound adjust and egg beaters.

These changes aren't major, and I'm not a huge fan of the LX drivetrain (with dual control shifters).

Every part on those bikes are heavy.. including the fork (the more expensive lefty forks are awesome..)... If you are after a light bike, i'd possibly consider something else.
