    Broke my bike frame. Recommendations?

    Hey everyone,

    I have a 04 Gary Fisher Tasajara(http://fisherbikes.com/bike/archivemodel/41) which I just cracked pretty good. I need a new frame, and I would like an upgrade. I can't really afford to pay a lot of money for a frame. I am thinking max of 200 bucks maybe a little more if it's truely worth it. Would this get me a better frame than the one I already have?

    Thanks a lot,

    Pat

    Are you the original owner? Lifetime Warranty!!

    Failing that, Performance Bike Access frame is pretty kickass, and cheap. Crazy light, too. You'll probably drop a pound over the Tassajara.

    You can advertise on craigslist for another identical Gary Fisher Tassajara bike frame (of course your fork will fit).

    Good Luck!

    He is looking for a $200 frame. There are plenty of decent frames that can be had for that much. The Access frames are nice, I used to have one.

    Here is an unlabeled Motobecane Fly, which is their top of the line aluminum hardtail.

    This is a Motobecane Fantom comp.

    Well it looks like you need brake bosses, so that narrows the field a little. The Motobecane Fantom Comp is a good frame that fits your budget as mentioned by ljsmith. The Access XCL frames are nice but they only have limited sizes (20.5 and 22) and colors left. There is also Leader frames such as these smokin' deals

    I've assembled Leader, Nashbar, Performance, and Sette frames over the last couple years, and I don't think you can go wrong with any of them, but the Leader is probably the nicest.
