Which frame? The manufacturer should list the weight limit. And a light guy could just as easily crack a frame with a bad crash or landing as a heavy guy.

Not "were a girl", more "like a girl"

 

Was, is, am, like, it's all the same to me. If the girl fits, wear it.

speaking of weight, whats the lightest aluminium frame ? How close does it come to carbon in terms of weight ?

[CAPITAL]e[lowercase]asier to digest is to drop some body weight, than to buy a Tupper bike and worry about dropping the frame[FULLSTOP]

I'm 105kg and I ride an Ibis Mojo (std, not SLR). I ride it hard and although I'm careful on my landings, I'm very confident to cross up over jumps. It also depends on what type of riding you're going to do.

 

But with today's technology and understanding of carbon fibre, I don't think you have too much to be concerned about. I used to fly RC helis, and I'd imagine the stresses that I put on the frames and blades (both were cf) far exceeded what I can do relatively to an mtb frame.

 

I was also sceptical of cf frames, but having seen what the material is capable of in other fields, I'm not concerned. Just investigate the manufacturer's warranty before buying.
