    Frame choice for SS?

    Well I think itís finally time to get a decent SS back in the stable. Well, I guess I do have the Bridgestone XO-1 and the fixie, but Iím talking MTB here.

    So Ė since Iíve been out of the loop for a bit and not real familiar with who offers what, how about some frame suggestions?

    I prefer steel, with discs tabs, and Iím thinking EBB will be the way to go. In the neighborhood of $600-700 if possible.

    Ready? Set? Go!

    Randy, you got 26", and have been on them for a long time. Go with something new. Get a Monkey! change up your riding a tad. I know that you'd be able to appreciate the ride. I know you'll have to get new wheels, but that'd be a reletivly cheap option. Everything else'll swap over. Plus KM's are just cool.

    Sounds like Curtlo and Vulture are right up your alley.

    just my two cents
