    Looking forward for 26 cr-mo hardteil frame. What could you suggest

    Hello guys!
    Here in Russia we don't have any good information about cr-mo bikes. So I looking forward for a steel mtb hardtail frame 26" with disk brakes fixing and for a flat bar.
    I want to use it for
    - marathons cross country rides
    - loading outback rides for 2-3 weeks
    - bikepacking
    So it also must have a real fixxings for trunk.

    Please, be so kind, suggest something to me. I have about 900$ for this shopping.

    Their titanium frame is not far from your budget, and notably lighter.

    Transition TransAM, with a light 140mm fork will do you well. I like mine.

    140mm for me is too long. I looking forward for 80-100 mm folk. Transition bikes ia more all mountain and there is no fixxings for trunk.
