Nice. Bar the Spinergys. Can't stomach them. But nice indeed!

@letmetalktomark,
to put your mind at rest mate I had exactly that frame and rigid for over 2 years and I'm a 6'6", 18 stone clumsy tw@t. The frame's an agro sponge, soaking up any harm you want to give it and a lovely twangy ride.

The most important thing to me is how stiff my BB shell is and lateral stiffness.

I reckon anything under 6/7 pounds odd is fair enough. My lightest steel mountain bike frame is somewhere under 4 and a half in a 19". That is fine for me, and it flexes in a pleasing way.
