Bloody nice bikes mate, too lightly built for me but would be awesome for a lighter rider , a bit of part swapping between them :) i think id rather take my chances on a bare seatpost than go near that speedneedle :thumbsup:

Those are Tune Speed Needles, if I'm not mistaken.
Why Britney, I think you're right. Still a sub 90g saddle on a mountain bike (or any bike for that matter) is funny stuff.

Marcopelle75,

I've been looking at a couple of those frames for my next 29er. Would love to hear your thoughts on how they compare. Any favorites?

Thanks.

Marco, I thought I needed a doctor. But I suppose for every sick person in the world there is someone sicker. I would love to ride every one of those bikes.

it is a bit counter intuitive, but light saddles are better on mtbs than road bikes. I have ridden on a speedneedle off road, and it is fine, but then I put it on a road bike and it just about ripped me a new one. I think it has something to do with how much you move about and are up and out of the saddle on a mountain bike.
