    New question here. Help finding a new frame

    Just bought a used trek 8000, turns out the frame is too small for me. I love the weight, and components seem real good, but just too cramped for me. I am thinking of replacing just the frame and selling the current one. It is a zr9000 frame.

    What are my options? I don't know names, models, brands of any comparable frames. I'd like it to come out to as close to a wash as possible. I am aiming to keep the weight relatively the same, though the lighter the better. If there is a more appropriate forum, or thread for this discussion please let me know.

    I have found good frame deals at Nashbar and Jenson. Nashbar carries Fuji which isn't the best but a good budget frameset and Jenson had some closeout Niner frames not too long ago. Other than that I would just keep searching Craigslist or the classifieds here on the forum. Good Luck!

    Thanks for the feedback guys. These are 26" wheels.

    Is there more than 1 type of aluminum frame? It seems my frame is much lighter than other aluminum frames on other bikes I've seen. I don't really know where to research this stuff, or how to identify comparable frames.
