    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.

    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.
