This is a cross post from the "Where are the Best deals" forum. I thought it was appropriate to post it here too. I hope this helps someone looking to do a budget hardtail build in the near future.
I just received word from my friends at Leader that they will be selling a new single butted 7005 aluminum hardtail frame for $89.00. The frame (LD 510H) will be under 4 lbs and available in three colors and four sizes via their website (www.leaderbikeusa.com) and their ebay store. Availability will be end of November, just in time for the holidays.
I own two Leader bikes, a 626S full suspension AM rig and a 515 XC hardtail. Check the reviews on their frames, it should tell you everything. They make an excellent product and represent an incredible value. Anyone who has read my posts on components and builds, you know that bang for the buck is huge on my list.
I've attached some pics.
