Just e:mailed a bloke who had a 19" curtis frame for sale about a month ago (I was interested myself at the time), will let you know if he still has it.

What about the Transition TransAM, Ok Cro-moly, but uber nice and rare. A bit over budget but another truly stunning looking hard hitting frame in some lovely colour schemes!

or....

Orange R8, 853 in disco black - 19", or blue and white in 17" and a penny under budget

I like this a lot but think I'll need a small unfortunately. Do you know when they stopped making the 26" wheel version?

Bikepedia says 2005. I sold a 90s one, another one of my stupid stupid decisions. If that one was a 19" I would be on it. Still want a 29er though, and that is the frame for me. :)

The Rock Lobster mentioned is a steal as well. Lovely frame.

Thanks very much for all the help and advice. It's happened a bit quicker than I planned but the right frame came along and I grabbed it :D

Cheers again to those that took the time to reply and PM me.

I didn't want to jinx it but what the hell. Thanks to Casper (and Suburbanreuben for putting me in touch) a Dekerf Implant will be heading from the Netherlands to Cornwall in the next few days :D

Cool bike. Not something you see every day, and should handle some abuse!

Yep, can't wait to get my hands on it. Think the first plan is to start saving for a new paint job to do it justice.
