I've come across a good deal on a 2009 Stiffee frame.

What are the main differences between that and the latest frames? Is it worth spending the extra money on a newer one?

    no core changes but I thought you needed a fully?

    We were discussing it, however due to the points raised both in my previous post and elsewhere I have decided to go for a custom build hardcore HT, which I could switch frames at a later date.

    Did the older Stiffee frames not have ISCG tabs?

    The newer ones don't have them either.

    Oh fair enough, looks like it may be a good deal then.

    Never really heard anything about them. Will do some research.
