    Looking for a new frame, what are my options?

    Currently have an XS 09 Slayer SS, which I have outgrown. Ideally, I would like to just buy a bigger frame and swap all my parts over. Aside from buying a larger Slayer what are my other options?

    To my knowledge and for everything to be compatible the frame needs to meet the following criteria for everything to be compatible:

    -10x135 rear axle
    -73mm BB
    -ISCG Old mounting

    If I'm wrong about any of the above or am missing something let me know. I'd just like to know of what other frames would work so I can expand my search.

    Thanks!

    Just start over, more fun that way. Otherwise just get a Wildcard. Fits everything except the chainguide.

    Or a Bottlerocket if you're looking for something more versatile.

    I wouldnt worry too much about the chain guide. It would be nice is it works out but dont count out a bike just cause it has isg05.

    also whats your rear hub? can you convert it?? what fork?? if your running a droper id rather the seat post math up then the chain guide tabs

    Headset and seat post are also possible variations.

    OP should also keep in consideration HT Length. If your steerer tube on the fork is for an XS, look at the length of the heat tube on the new frames to ensure your old fork will move over alright.
