Re the paint job, that isn't the carbon you can see under the paint, it's more paint meant to look like carbon. The original Cadex frames were made from roving and unidirectional tape, they have no weave.

does anyone know what the frame weights?

do u think it would be possible to trying to add an A2DZ discbrake converter? will it take an 80mm fork? anyone tried that?


This frame weighs 1.660 grams
An 80mm fork will probably screw up the geometry; slow steering,
I think 63mm is the max you'd want to put in there.
As far as the discbrake adapter; ofcourse you can put one on, but
you'd better search for a post '97 Giant MCM with discbrake mounts

It should be possible to ride an 80mm's with some sag but, a rigid carbon fiber unit would probarly be better...
