I'm currently using a C'dale F1000 frame and want to upgrade the frame to something even lighter. I've done some searching and narrowed my choice to the following two (in no particular order):
-Ellsworth Enlightenment (Al)
-Scott Scale Limited (CF)
The Scott frame is 1041g according to the weightweenies, but I can't find a weight for the Ellsworth. I have ridden the Scott at a LBS and the Ellsworth from a friend, and I must say, that I like them both without any particular preference.
Does anyone have any experience, particulary with the Scott Scale Limited? I have never owned or used a CF bike for any length of time and so I'm a bit worried about durability issues that I've heard about CF. I'm mainly going to use this bike for light to moderate XC trails and I'm a light rider (140lbs or so). And I'm hoping this frame will last me for at least 4-5 years.
