I need some advice.I can get this frame for what I think is a real bargain(R3500.00),the frame is still in a good condition but I don't know much about these Carbon Full suss frames.

What do you guy's think?Is it a good frame and a good prize??

Not a fan of carbon MTBs but it is a great price. The alu version of that frame will be around R5500.

Why aren't you guys fans of carbon MTB's? The frame will basically be for me, so.... I'm not (tooo / thatEmbarrassed) heavy and will obviously not do super technical routes at the speed of a freight train at full steam....

pro's and cons please....Big%20smile

Dont do it! If i were you if i were you i  wouldnt buy it (btw: what are the details of the owner of the frame, i'll buy it!!!!WinkLOLLOLLOL) (Jokes, go for it its not that much, just make sure everything is intact, always nervous about secondhand mtb bikes, they do generally take a beating, all depending on the previous riders riding style)

as far as riding style goes it makes no difference its the terrain that we ride on that makes the difference

Skatties, daai teels en bank pas mos nou glad nie.... julle gaan vir Oom Hennerik erg ontstel LOL Hy het n sensitive dispostion vir kleurskakerings.

 

nochain, daai Scott Scale 20 Carbon frame v my is nou in sy derde jaar en het nog geen moeilikheid nie. Twee SabieX's later en sy ry nog schweet. Ek verstaan nie lekker whatsup met die hele anti-carbon-MTB-establishment nie? Die beste MTB in my opinie - die Specialised S Works Dual susser, is n Carbon frame - nie gelyk of dit vir Sauser laas jaar op die epic te veel gepla het nie.

 

Kan christie jou nie dalk met n integriteits toets op die lasplekke help nie? Anders kan ons daai pers lig van Psycho wat hy vir sy home made movies Wink gebruik, vir n goeie purpose aanwend en kyk of die frame haar-krake het.

Rad summed it up more or less . You may be a very carefull MTB racer but there comes times when you got to go over the rock or jump the gap and if things goes wrong I fear you may break more than just a leg . I must admit that I have not heard of a lot of carb MTB's breaking

If you just scrape the surface it can lead to a crack with all the pounding a bike takes. And if you are not riding a MTB hard, then you are wasting your time.
