    steel frames with Paragon sliders?

    I had the wonderful opportunity yesterday to demo a Cielo 29er at Mountain Bike Oregon. Absolutely amazing all-rounder; climbed faster than its weight and descended like a champ. So I'm now interested in adding a hardtail (already have a Racer-X 29er) to the stable. Before I potentially pull the trigger on a Cielo ($1695 for frame), what other steel options are out there specifically with Paragon sliders as opposed to EBB?

    Quiring is one option; IF doesn't look like they do off the shelf sliders, who else?

    if you're considering almost $1700 why not go custom steel?

    almost any small builder will do paragon sliders if that's what you want. Some even have their own take on that like Vulture.
