So im looking to build up a hardtail that weighs under (or just about) 15lbs. So whats popular right now?

    Requirements are, under $900, hardtail, Aluminum, want enough left over for something like XT/X9 componentry.
    Wow. Just....

    I REALLY hope you're kidding (well... I should say attmpted humor).

    Ha! The Scott Scale LTD, a top-end carbon hardtail, has XTR and weighs in at 18 pounds. It costs $8000 to boot.

    Good luck drilling all those holes in your frame.

    Anything under 16 pounds will be both incredibly expensive (Actually, anything under 20 will cost a lot), no matter how old the components, and also not be capable at anything but the road. Also, 15 pounds is UCI weight limit for road bikes, just so you know....

    How long have you been biking again?

    My comment was plenty helpful. I attempted to make you aware of your own foolishness. Apparently, I failed.

    In the world of rhetoric, that is what would be known as an ad hominem. It is generally considered a fallacy and often reflects the offender's apparent incapacity for intelligent speech.

    I also want proof of your statement that you're more than my life. I doubt in that becuase, well, I've never met any adult who would go by the handle "elf'.

    That's a hoot. If you're worth so much, then why do you only have $900 to spend on a 15lb bike? And why did you erase everything you said?

    As blasphemous as it may sound, theres other things in life more neccesary than bikes, especially for a student, i erased everything i said in an effort to avoid pointless conversations such as this.

    Its time to drop this post, move on with life, and go spend time with you fam.
