Hi guys!
Im starting to look at potential frame sources for my new MTB build during winter time price drops.

Project will be around carbon frame in fully rigid or front suspension setup depending on wheel sizes I will finally go 26, 27,5 or 29er.

Frame sources so far:

http://pedalforce.com/online/index.php?cPath=21_100088&osCsid=66012a8bd7d81b64900ca6a5b2f5d1a3

Any more suggestions of some new affordable but reasonable frame shops like those mentioned?

As a side note im 187cm with 93cm inseam, so 21' is my target size.

    Nooooo! Building is for winter not the bike :D!
    Winter offers better prices for components and I also ride less to have time to ski .. so its time for another build :)

    Chinese carbon frame via ebay, well made (do your homework) and will come out at circa 1100-1150g.
