    new frame?

    Hey gang,
    I'm looking for a new 26" mountain bike frame. I have everything to build the bike, jus don't know which way to go. There are so much options out there. I am 6ft 255lbs. I do a lot of trail with all kinds of terrain in hawaii, and some street use for commute and occasionally get some big jumps in, wen tempted. Need help. Thanks.

    Yea get a hard tail.... 456 may be overly slack. Ns surge is too small. Ragley bluepig is the way to go

    Try to contact Turner bikes, they just discontinued their 5 spot and still have some in stock. I know the frame used to be 2K, but you might be able to score some deal...
    There should be a lot of 26" bikes on sale everywhere around. Not many people buying them these days..
    Website updated. No 5 spot on the list of bikes...

    I believe 5"-5.5" rear travel bike will be the best for you.

    The 2013's should be available still at discounted price's. I love my Rune and they are down to $1600 with free shipping now. You can dropouts to fit 26 and 650b and different width's as well. Also the Geo. is adjustable via the flipchip's on back.
    I like to fart when I'm in front of you on a climb
