My wife is looking to upgrade to a different frame that is relatively cheap, light, and pink. It doesn't have to be pink since the color can easily be changed, but she saw the new GTw Avalance 3.0 in pink on GT's website and fell in love. Since the entire assembled bike is under $500, I'm thinking we could get the frame at a fair price.

Does anyone know anything about these frames? How light are they and are they fairly strong? Any good online sources for purchasing GT frames?

Appreciate the input.
