Default Nimbus or original coker frame which is lighter?


ok I have a 29 inch inseam, and I ordered the Nimbus 36'er with a T7
handle, what would I have to do to ride it without difficulty.... or
can I ride it without difficulty, without modifying it?

Which cranks are you intending to use?

enough I may by 89mm

I'm just switching from the Coker to the Nimbus frame, so took a minute
to weigh both:
Coker: 864 grams
Nimbus: 1141 grams

Both measured without bearing holders or seat post clamps - just the
frame. (Well, the Coker frame has two of Darren's flame decals still
on it, but that's noise, not signal, eh?)
