So Cali vender selling Chinese frames?
Anyone know of a local vender/personal selling Chinese 27.5 frames, full suspension. Either carbon or aluminum will do.
Then, you might as well pick up something like a Santa Cruz. Because if someone takes on that undertaking, the prices are going to go way up to cover all expenses involved.
'96 San Andreas
'12 SC Nickel LT
Incoming: 2008 Lotus Exige S 240
'12 Toy FJ TT
'05 Cooper S
'95 Honda HB Si
'71 Dino 246 GT
Agreed, the China made frames seem to be decent quality but shipping them and warehousing them costs money. It is cheaper to buy them direct. Santa Cruz and Norco have some very nice reasonably priced carbon frames. Wait a few months and you might get a good deal on a closeout frame.
I recall that g2 bike did builds based on no name chinese carbon frames, or it could've just been the personal build of someone affiliated with them done with their help.
I was looking at YouTube a saw a company selling the frame in Minnesota or something, called "lamere" but the price was $1000! Comes with seat post,clamp, headset, stem, handel bar. HB and Seat post are carbon as well.
Checked out Santa cruz superlight 3.3 its only $550 with shock. Been reading up on SP vs VPp vs APP. But I'm so new to the sport I doubt I'll even know the difference.
I new and in no way a good rider so I don't really care if the frame is carbon, aluminum, or steel. I just got a bike a few weeks ago which is steel frame and really enjoy the sport so I wanted to put something together. I like to tinker so this build won't ultra nice parts but something I can afford and enjoy assembling.
Any other brands you guys know of that sells frames at a good price?
I checked out jamis but seems I have to only go through a dealer.
Thanks for the help guys.
