So looking around my shed I have spare wheels/cranks/stems/bars brakes/gears/ forks. So I am thinking all I need is a nice frame and, bam, I will have a new bike to play with.

It needs to be 26er, 20" or XL and Full Sus - WHYG?

Not a word, but yes. It's called common sense.......

Normal round here, though you should clearly already have a few spare frames and more parts to build them and many more.

Give it time.

Easily done!

While you're at it, get two frames then all you need to find are some " spare wheels/cranks/stems/bars brakes/gears/ forks" and bam!.....

I recently fell into this trap again myself, I'd ended up with a spare set of disc brakes and disc equipped wheels, a quick look around the shed and I thought 'yeah, there's a whole bike here minus the frame'. So I purchase a new frame, turns out i also needed a rear mech, cranks, handlebars, headset, saddle, the list continues. After all that the bike has turned out nicer than i thought so some components dont do it justice...
