    Simple, concise, and true.

    Weight does not stop one from becoming stronger and fitter, attributes every climber needs, irrespective of weight.

    Interesting, and I'll look forward to more info. My initial thoughts, though, are that it looks pretty retro, the OS downtube notwithstanding. Most tube diameters are pretty small, and there seems...

    Unbelievable. Exactly what you set out to avoid in the OP, and you got a sh**ty $40 carrier in the deal, too, bringing your total outlay to, what, $150 to get none of the things you wanted?
