Santa Cruz V10 CC frame, w/o shock

$2000 USD
Frame has been ridden for 2 months, I'm selling to buy an XXL V10 now that they are available. Frame comes without shock, but you probably want a cane creek double barrel air anyway because you probably read on the internet that they're the bestest. Frame is white. In excellent, working condition, and shows wear typical of two months of use. Seat clamp and rear axle included. Warning: that photo is not a picture of my bike. Real photos coming soon. Buyer pays shipping, paypal accepted.

XC racers need chainguides? I thought no one ever needed a chainguide ever again?

Blenki's Norco Bike Check - World Cup DH, Lenzerheide
If everything could be 20mm front/142 rear the world would be a much, much better place. Here's the funny part though: 142 is apparently stiff enough for Norco's DH bike, but their full trail line up is going to Boost 148. HAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!

Ask Pinkbike: Whips, Carbon Rims, and Cracked Frames
Flow EX's on the downhill and 160mm bike, WTB KOM's on the 29er. 440 grams for an aluminum rim that costs $95? Makes carbon hard to justify.

So @tsheep- "well engineered" carbon rims should feel "more like aluminum?" If that's the case, then what's the argument for carbon? $900 per rim to save ~50 grams?

I didn't notice any problems with carbon rims until I went back to aluminum. When I made the switch back it was mind blowing. Aluminum rims track so much better. Night and day.

Carbon rims are not significantly stiffer than aluminum in the vertical plane, they're stiffer laterally. Changing suspension setup would create more compliance vertically, but wouldn't really touch lateral deflection. Remember when Fox redesigned the 40's lowers to incorporate additional "compliance" aka flex that their athletes requested? You want some degree of lateral deflection. Stiffer is not automatically better.

Carbon rims are too stiff. That's what you were feeling.
