Quick aside. A bike can be too stiff. I sold my Klein and Serotta T Max because they were just too harsh to ride all day. There was an interesting article on Pinkbike recently where they mentioned a bit of frame flexibility can make you ride faster, as well as in greater comfort. Its always fascinated me how certain bikes have this mystical quality.
The Zaskar i test rode was taken off the short list pretty quickly. I didn't have any fillings, but i'm pretty sure they would have been shaken out pretty sharpish if i had.

Zaskars are for gnarly people.

Or larger folks that found the steel frames available at the time far too wibbly and wobbly.

I can rip at least two pages of the phone book in half.
