    You could also consider a Ti hardtail, $862 for the frame, and with some very careful parts picking you could build it up for under $2500 and have it be 23lb or so.

    21lbs and it's even a 26". Bet you could get it for $2500 or less. Parts spec is a bit of a mutt though, needs a M980 crank and some custom wheels IMHO.

    I really liked the long 27.2 titanium post on my old titanium hardtail, really took the edge off the ride. Most 31.6 alloy posts ride like a brick.

    I'm a bit disappointed maxxis came out with a 26x2.8" DHF/DHR2, when a 26x2.6 or modern casing sizing 26x2.5 would be plenty big. I've got a 26x2.5 shorty that is huge.

    What kind of rim damage do they have? It can't be repaired some how?
