    inexpensive xc frame?

    friend of mine got into riding not long ago and has been throwing reasonable parts onto a very heavy cheap frame thats way to small for him...

    he's wanting to buy a new frame and swap as much as he can over to the new bike... his target is about $200 or less...

    so whats out there for him?

    I know about the sette from pricepoint,
    the nashbar steel frame fits in the pricerange...

    what else is out there?
    thanks guys

    Ibex Alpine....$169 comes with a headset and seat-post clamp (just under $200 shipped)

    I just built a 550 for a friend. As always the value for the money is impressive and it went together very well.

    Depending on what size he is looking for, Cambria has several Kona hardtail frames for under $200. I recently picked up a Nunu for $179. Very nice frame. Love the geometry.
