    Recommend: Ti SS frame (29er) non-custom

    I need some recommendations on Ti SS frames, but do not want a custom frame. So far, I've been eyeing a Salsa Selma.

    Hard to go wrong with either a Lynskey Ridgeline or Pro 29.

    One is good!

    I like the looks of the Salsa Selma's dropouts better than the Ridgeline, but I'm not crazy about needing 3 different size wrenches to adjust them. But the Selma is $150 less than the Ridgeline so I might be able to get over needing 1 more wrench.

    Salsa has sold out of Selma's - but if you need a Large they were showing a frame or two a couple of days ago.. that doesn't mean that dealers somewhere might not have one in your size in stock. Salsa's Ti bikes are made by Lynskey and the Alternator drop-outs rock. That said, Lynskey makes great bikes as well.

    There's always Carver as well. Good frame for the price.

    Lynskey Pro29 SL or Ridgeline SL. The selmas are nice too... as others have mentioned, also built by Lynskey.

    +1 on the Carver. My buddy just built his and loves it!, he hasn't been on his geared SJ in over a month.

    You only need two(the top bolts don't need touched)... and every size I need is on my multi tool. They are bomber dropouts. Don't knock 'em until you ride 'em for a while.
