As i've just bought a new AX Lightness stem will have to just look at these frames.

I like the idea. They stand out from the masses of modern look alike mtb's

So you've just spent your 4 or 5 grand and entered ya twelve hour endurance race in an area with quite a sandy soil and it lashes down all that sand goes down the back of that stem and starts wearing away the carbon (over quite an extended period of time)! What kind of warranty issues would that bring up? I really like the look of the LOOK hardtail and full susser but not sure I could part with the cash for it :(

I think it would look better with some low riser bars!

That must be a problem they must have considered surely?!

Does bugger all for me, I have to say. But then I'm not a racing whippet any more, and that's who something like that is aimed at.
