Looking For A New Frame

Postby NCHANT on Thu 17/May/12 8:11pm

Hey guys,

I've had my 2008 Kona Stinky for about 4 years now, and might look at finally getting a lighter frame. I'm happy with all the gear from the Stinky (Marzocchi 66's, Hayes brakes etc) so looking for just a frame.

I haven't really kept up to date with bikes for a while, so what would be a good frame out there at the moment?
I'm not biased towards any brands, just looking for a lighter bike with at least 7" of travel :)

Cheers!

I quite like the look of the transition TR250 at the moment

A Morewood Kalula would be worth a look

You might want to make sure the frame you get will fit the rear wheel hub i.e. if you have a 135x10mm hub, make sure the frame is the same, or get a new hub or wheel.

You should look in to a newer model giant faith or reign x if you can. Nice light frames. the Reign X only has 6.7" of travel i think, but is still a demon of a bike and would be perfect with 66's

Thanks guys, those Transitions are damn nice bikes! Same with the Morewood, but not sure if that is in my price range.

I'm comfortable going up to $1000 for a frame, new or 2nd hand.

Just found this frame, thoughts? http://www.amazon.com/Commencal-Supreme ... B5MAYZF81U
