    What frame?

    I have just broken my Kona Entourage frame and am thinking about replacing it with another brand/model.

    The problem is that I already have the parts... so I do not want to spend more money with the compatibility issue.

    I´m looking for a freeride frame, offered in a large size (600+mm top tube) with:

    170-190mm of travel
    222mm shock lenght
    83mm BB shell
    12X150mm rear axle
    Tapered or 1.5" head tube
    ISCG 05 tabs

    Any suggestions?

    you may have problems with the shock since most are specific tunes for that suspension design.

    I have a CaneCreek Double Barrel Air... so this should not be a problem

    Unfortunately the Transitio shock lenght is 216mm, not 222mm.... but OK... it´s a good option.

    No more ideas guys?

    This should not be a problem as I have a CaneCreek DBAir... totally adjustable.

    Till now we listed:
    Transition TR250
    Banshee Scythe
    Cove STD

    The Banshee doesn´t seem to have the geometry I´m looking for... do anybody have an axperience with the bike built with a 170mm fork (Lyrik DH Solo Air)?

    Any new ideas?
