    Looking for a 26" SS Frame/Complete

    Howdy all. Spend more time lurking and looking around here than posting.

    Seems as though the world has all gone 29er. To each their own. I still dig my good ol' 26".

    Looking for a new ride now. Having trouble locating a new 26" SS Frame/Complete. There's Surly, and On One, and the custom folks...but who else is making an off the shelf 26" SS Frame/Complete?

    Thanks!

    Nice! Thanks.

    Just came across a new 16" Voodoo Bokor frame for $150. I'm 5'9 and have always ridden a 18" frame for the length, stand over is a bit tight on an 18" though.

    The new SC Chameleon with new swinging dropouts is worth a look. What other SS frame can you put a 6" travel fork on?

    Soma Analog? I noticed it while ogling the b-side frames

    Used market is really where it's at.

    Since you're already in the vast minority with 26" tendencies, I'll go ahead and recommend track ends and v-brake out back.

    BTW I used to ride a 17" wanga (same geo as bokor) and found it right on, 5'10.5". You should be fine on the 16.

    If you are searching used, I'd look for Soul Cycles Hooligan (hard to find), Redline Monocog/Monocog Flight and On One Inbred. I've spent time on all four and liked them well, though I currently have an On One. It is a great bike, but weighs a **** ton.

    Some of the longer travel bikes like the Chameleon and TransAm looks super sweet and will likely be on my next purchase, since it fits well into my summer riding.

    Go for eccentric bb or hub, you have every bike to choose from.

    Cool. Thanks everyone.

    I'm in Central TX. Got a buddy that owns a shop, so I get good deals when I want em...been off the bike for a while though. Getting back on. He's got a Bokor frame, new in the box, for a super sweet price. Reckon I'm gonna go that way.

    Now I'll start posting stupid build questions.

    Surprised the Ibis Tranny didn't get a mention here.

    Have fun with the Bokor.
    I see hills.

    I want to climb them.

    kona explosifs are pretty hot, the 2006 (i think) versions were true temper ox plat tubes, very very nice. slacker geo than normal though.

    Sounds rad, but I got the Bokor on lock now.

    Build fever begins!
