I am also looking at a good value for money with performance. I have had a look at the Scott Spark 29er expert, which if u could get it would be around R27/8k. It is a Carbon dual sus....claim 11.5kg. The one up is the Pro....better spec.

Have had a look around, Giant, GT, Trek, Spez.....but am totally lost. Scott seems to be best deal for a carbon and weight. Handling.....I have no clue, coming off a ht 26er, they feel very foreign....

The new Silverback Storm carbon 29er. Storm1 10.6kg will go for +- 23k and Storm2 10.8kg for 20k, both got Stans ZTR crest wheels. The frames look superb with metal protection in the right places, a triangular down tube and some give in the rear triangle along with the narrow 27.2 seat post will add some comfort.

Harder on the smooth stuff and as gets steeper then worse, but easier on rough, rolls nice and able to keep a nice steady cadence.

Many guys r very happy with 2x10....I may just b slow to accept changes, I like options. Also gone from rapid rise to standard at the back, I am definitely a rapid rise fan and changing is a huge annoyance, keep on wrong gearing, not sure if SRAM do
