Hi. I want to look at building an Aggressive Hardtail but want some suggestions on a cheap frame (£100-150) to start with?

Want 27.5” wheels so I can swap stuff with my mega if needed

Any suggestions ?

Thanks

Phil

    Well if you want anything vaguely decent you're looking at used.
    Many 26" frames will take a 27.5 wheel and tyre, especially if they were originally designed to have a front mech.

    Nearest I could find new was a Brand X from CRC, reasonably modern GEO but designed for a 120mm fork.

    On-one is the obvious, Ragley, Cotic, Dartmoor.
    Have a look on Pinkbike, I just spotted a few, a Ragley Bagger for £150 and a Dartmoor Primal for £300 (with forks, dropper plus a few other bits) for example.

    I've bought quite a lot of stuff on there... like any classifieds it's caveat emptor of course, but never had a problem.
