I have a 6 year old 5500 and I'm thinking of a new frame. I have updated all the components. I still want the cushy ride but wonder if there is something lighter like maybe the 5900 or a Merlin extralight or what have you. Please give me your suggestions

The 5500 frames - OCLV 120 - are still very fine frames in their own right and great value for money, IMO. At 1093 odd grams for a size 60, are you going to get/need anything much lighter? Add to that the ride quality and many other strengths and I would think you don't need to look any further. But that said, a new carbon Nag would be sweet!!!! Good luck.
