    Help choosing AM frame

    I'm too cheap to buy a new bike, well honestly can't afford what I really want. Current ride is a 2008 Intense 5.5 small frame. I've ridden it a few hundred miles and I think I would be more comfy on a med size frame. What I'd like to do is transfer ALL parts from the Intense to a Med size all mountain frame,if feasible. My budget on a late model/new or used all mountain frame is no more then $1k

    What frame would you guys suggest? I prefer to ride more technical stuff vs XC. If possible where can I get a med Intense frame?

    Thoughts and suggestions please. Thanks!

    Heard good things about the Titus el guapo, but have not ridden one myself. Can get a new frame for under $1000 (if they have them in stock?). Worth a look, imo.

    I've got a medium Tracer VP frame I'll sell for a lot less than your budget. PM if interested.
