    New question here. Hello from a new guy who is in-need of some frame advice.

    Hi

    First thank you for having me on this site.

    Hello to everyone.

    Now for my situation, I have adopted a Giant Trance X 26" with a cracked frame.

    I will be buying a new frame however I need advice on what to get.

    I don't want anything with rear suspension which the bike has on it now.

    I would like to use all the parts from this bike onto the new frame.

    Open to suggestions on brands, I had in mind a GT or specialized, new to all this however I have heard off these brands from my bmx riding days (long time ago).

    Please advise on what frame to get that will fit most if not all parts.

    Thank you in advance for your time and responce.

    Please note something under the 1k price tag.

    We need to know what kind of riding you plan to do. Frames are different from one brand to another,even models with the same brand can be different.. Steerer tubes are longer or shorter ,taper or non 1' or 1.5. Seat tubes are different diameters with different posts and derailuers clamp diameters. Bottom brackets are threaded or press fit ,68 or 70 mm. Spacing for the rear wheel could be 126,130,135 or 142. You could look on bikepedia to find the measurements of your bike and them look for a frame that has the same.

    Listen!

    Thanks for the reply. Checked out bikepedia now that's a good site for the info I need I appreciate it.

    As for all the details you included, don't understand much of it.

    I guess mostly street riding and will try to find some cross country to go out when weekend when I get a chance.

    I am speaking to a memeber on here about a On One 456 Carbon frame which I don't mind the look off.

    Well just need to do the research on fitting my parts on there the bike is a Trance X2 2011. From the site you provided.
