    Building Titanium Hardtail 29er...frame and shock advice please

    I have a budget of about 3k for titanium hardtail 29er. I am very interested in the motobecane bikes, but they are out of stock. For the same kind of cash, what titanium frame and shocks could I get that would allow me to build up something of the same caliber?

    Thanks!

    If you only have 3K to spend then it is really Motobecane or used for titanium. You may be able to build up a Lynskey Ridgeline for close to $3K, the frame is about $1700. In my opinion the Lynskey is a higher quality frame, but you would be hard pressed to build up the bike with an equivalent quality part spec and stay under $3k.

    If you can wait a little while Bikesdirect will get in more inventory.
