    ISO used 3" travel FS/XC frame, size L

    I'm in the market for a used FS XC frame in fair to good condition with around 3" of rear travel that will be compatible with an 80mm fork and disc brakes, and which has an effective top tube measurement in the 23.6" to 24.2" range. Since my "serious" XC racing career is at an end, I want to replace my hardtail frame with something more comfy, but still potentially "raceable" should the urge to race strike me again one day. I don't want to have to purchase a new 100mm fork, so the frame has to be compatible with an 80mm fork. My budget is fairly limited, so the condition does not have to be perfect. My ultimate would be finding a used Ventana Pantera or El Fuego, but I'd also be willing to consider softtail designs, ala the Trek STP. Anybody out there have a frame like this they're willing to part with?

    My friend is selling a barely used Klein Adept Comp frame 3" in the rear and only used for a few month.
