    Aluminum XC Hardtails?

    I'm in the market for a new frame, and would prefer it to be 650b. Problem is, I haven't been able to find many 650b aluminum hardtails, and the ones I have found have been either low end or geared towards AM. Maybe something along the lines of the Air 9, but in 650b. Does something like that even exist?

    Thanks,
    Colin.

    Carbon china frames can be had for $250-$450 on ebay if that's an option. They're mostly copies off of proven designs from known brands and alot of people are having success with them.

    I'm really like both of those Marin's and the alu. Giant XTC. I wonder if either of these can be had in just the frame?
    Another one I've been looking at is the Axevo X-Team
