    Looking for a good downhill frame or bike for cheap

    Hi, i currently own a Trek Ticket Stub (its a dirt jumper) i crashed that on a downhill track and broke the rear rim and fractured my back.. so that made me think getting a full suspension frame would be very helpful. If i need to i will sell my Ticket and get a new bike but i'm pretty set on just a full suspension frame. I want a frame thats practically bomb proof and under 1,500 not that i'm still open to full bikes i've looked at the Airborne Taka and i've heard of this Kona Stink/ Stab. Please Help

    Better put on that flame suit , cuz its about to get HOT UP N HUR ... Seriously tho , if you do a little searching you will see what frames are out there for that price range and reviews . Esp now since most 2012 stuff NEEDS to go , you could prob get a killer deal . Just make up your mind first tho, frame or FS bike .. PB usually has some decent ads for sale too with the season coming to an end .

    Factor, do those bikes pivot around the bottom bracket? So I can use it with s single speed setup?

    I must comment on the Lucky 7. The suspension is better than a Kona Stinky. The KHS licenses the Horst link 4 bar design from Specialized and the Kona uses a "faux" 4 bar, meaning it looks like a 4 bar but in reality its a single pivot design. Meaningless for FR use, but means the frame is a better climber if anyone on this forum actually pedals uphill.
