    need cheap temporary frame...

    My brothers KHS Alite 2000 frame cracked. The frame is back at KHS waiting to be replaced (who knows when they will get to it or if they will actually honor their frame warrenty). We have been taking turns on my bike but that is already really old. For one I lost my riding partner, and for two we usually want to ride on the same days.

    Nashbar has a cheap $100 MTB frame that I was thinking of picking up for him to use in the mean time. Any other Ideas?

    KHS sixfifty606
    Felt F90

    Current Condition:
    6' 2" @ 288 lbs.

    If you're in the Raleigh/Durham area I've got an old trek 26" frame you can use for free for as long as you need.

    FYI! Remember that just buying a frame and thinking all your old parts will fit, won't get you a complete bike. The seat post diameter could be different, the front Derailliur, seat post clamp, chain length, Bottom bracket, Headset, etc. Is your old forks steer tube long enough? cable housing, cables?

    The Hub in Brevard has some Harvey Cycle F/S frames they're closing out for $100. I think they were around $600/700 when full price.
