I've got a 'project' idea and I need some options/opinions.
I've been riding 29ers for a few years now and I love them, but I'm starting to miss certain things about my 26" - 120mm travel hardtail 'trail/jump' bike.
I'm looking for a hardtail frame built for (I'm guessing) around 120-130mm travel. I'm thinking of building it up with a 100mm RS Reba 29er fork and a 29er front wheel. I'm thinking that would give me roughly the intended geometry for the frame, and still have a big wheel up front.
So, what frames should I be looking at? My old 26" - 120mm travel frame was custom and I sold it (oops) so that isn't really an option. And since this is a 'project' I'm wanting to keep the cost down. I've been looking at Surly Instigators, Santa Cruz Chameleons....what else?
