Hi

Just needing some inspiration or advice...Got about £50-£70 to spend on a frame and forks...want it to be as light as possible not too fussed about the brand as it will probably get a respray. Which way to go...steel?, Alu?, Ti! (yeah right!)

What would you be looking out for????

Doug

Yeah I had seen that but a bit on the wee side! I need an 18-20" frame something suitable for a 6ft3-4ish guy with a 33" inside leg...

Would be very interesting although, like you I am 6ft3-4 so fear its a little small (and possibly fragile for a 16 stoner too!)
