    2009 Felt SIX Race frame????????
    I have been shopping frames to buy and would like to have something nice to build on. http://www.feltracing.com/09-catalog...ace-frame.aspx I dont know much about the Felt brand and so Im hoping for some good info in this forum, I thought about posting in the Felt forum but it doesnt look like it gets much traffic. The trails I ride most are some twisty and fast singletrack, but also has some steep climbs. Does anyone have any suggestions for other frames I might look at? Thanks!

    What is your budget? Where do you ride? Do you have a frame material preference (steel vs alu)?

    Felt is a Taiwanese "big" bike brand (read: Trek, Specialized, etc). That frame seems like a upper-mid level XC frame (carbon stays). It has an internal headset :(

    I want something nice but I dont think I'll spend more than a $1,000 for a frame. I live close to Brown County Indiana so I ride those trails most of the time. Its mostly tight singletrack with a good amount of elevation change, its got it all there. I guess I dont know why an internal headset is bad? I would prefer aluminum over steel, dont really wanna pay for a carbon.
