Islabike is a weight weenie Gaz - you should like it, paint chips easily but the bike is lovely.
Daughter has a hotrock and that is nice too but a bit heavier with the forks.
I've also got miniken's old Trek MT60 sitting in the shed if you want a cheap deal, just needs brakes and some re-building, perhaps a new BB but I've never striped it down. It is heavier though with the pogo stick front sus. But is infinately adjustable (even has 2 pedal holes in each crank) - lasted mK from 7 till 11 - never raced or rallied
Knowing you though, I would recommend a self build with an old hot rock frame - like I did with miniKens 46er.
