Which frame for XC 12-hours marathon?

Hi there - i am into road cycling but been recently considereing getting a XC bike to train to finish a 12-hours race in 2008.

My idea was build a light XC bike - get a light hardtail frame, put a nice wheelset and a light suspension - oh and v-brakes not discs, since they're heavier.

But the question is, which bike/frame to choose?

It seems like all the nice frames these days are for disc brakes only...

If i end up going for a frame with disc brakes, would the Klein Attitude XX be a nice choice for XC marathons?

What I got...

Havent had it installed yet but but the reviews are awesome and the price was outstanding at $149 USD + Shipping.

Lightweight...I can pick the whole frame up with the tip of my finger. V-Brake Compatible
