Got bored on the weekend

I'd picked up a carbon frame a while ago to lose a bit of weight, give a bit more cockpit space and provide a more compliant ride than my XTC. Swapping all of the parts across took a few hours and with the exception of a seat-post shim ($5 from CRC) everything just transferred straight across. I don't think there are any parts from the original Giant left (maybe the stem) so it's a bit of a 'grandfathers axe'

I haven't tested it in anger yet but it feels very good and is more responsive that the old frame. It's about 300g lighter than the old setup which was by no means heavy, I think I'll get rid of the UST tyres now and go for broke on weight savings
